Tonight fishballs soup

And what fishball! Very first time for me to taste such a freshness. Plain fish meat sold loose at the market. there was also the flavorful¬†version with spring onions and other herbs but i went for the plane white one…and surprise. Excellent plus. And i am not a fishballs lover, tending to discard them tenderly into hub bowl most of the time ūüėÄ

Lots of ingredients for this soup:

  • Fresh mint leaves – foglie di menta
  • Dry dill – aneto
  • Fresh and fried garlic – aglio
  • Purple¬†cabbage – verza viola
  • Green lettuce – lattuga
  • Fish meat for fishballs – carne pesce per fishballs
  • 4 juicy Cherry tomatoes ( i used a large oval version) – pachino succosi
  • tofu puffs
  • red onion, coarse¬†salt, olive oil
  • udon

It takes about 20 minuts to prepare this mintey delcious dish. It reminds me of Vietnamese fantastic meals where mint and lettuce are always present.

  1. Briskly stir fry garlic and onion, then add halved tomatos. (5 min)
  2. After few minuts add little hot water, stir and add more. (2 min)
  3. Drop the veggies coarsly sliced. Let them cook for a long while. (10 min)
  4. At the end add noodles and dullops of fish meat, and dill finally. (8 min)

E N J O Y    IT !

As side dish i complemented this quick dinner with garlickey red cabbage & broccoli stir fried. Also very tasty.


white & green soup ~ zuppa bianca verde

This is soo deli, you should try it, literally mouthlicking with… mpppa (~~~> sweet mouth sound of satisfaction after eating).

Boil spaghetti and when they re tender start adding other ingredients: chunks of scallion, pak choy leaves in stripes, half zucchino in stripes, paprika, a pinch of dill. Then fish soup and a dash of whipped cream. Let the greens become tender and serve it hot topped with fresh spring onion sprinkled.

Vi innamorerete di questa zuppa cosi semplice e gustosa. Poche verdure fresche e qualche spezia, spaghetti et voila! Come si fa: Bollite gli spaghi e quando sono teneri nella stessa acqua di cottura aggiungete a mano a mano pak choy in striscette,  mezza zucchina in strisce, paprika, un pizzico di aneto. Poi salsa di pesce (fish sauce dal thai shop), un po di crema da cucina per dare il colore bianco. Quando le verdure sono tenere, servire calda con erba cipollina fresca in cima.

Let’s celebrate¬†with it¬†Presto Pasta Nights #152¬†the 3 years old¬†event hosted now by Italian mama chef¬†and created by Ruth. Enjoy it ladies ūüôā
