Sweet Peanut Soup (Xiamen Peanut Soup) 厦门花生汤



Many years back when we first visited our native village back in China, my brothers and I discovered a small stall near the hotel selling local dishes and snacks.

This sweet peanut soup was one of them, I remembered going back for more everyday during our stay. It was just incredibly delicious, unforgettable taste even after so many years...


多年前回老家厦门探亲,和几个弟弟蹲在旅馆门口的一个小摊子喝这个花生汤,香甜好喝,后来的几天每天都到小摊子报到。那个味道许多年不忘。

花生蛋白质丰富,拥有好几种对人体有益的氨基酸,煮汤更是下火美容。天凉的时候来一碗热热甜甜的花生汤既可以饱肚,又可以养生喔!

Ingredients:
2 cups/300 gm of white long peanuts
100-150 gm rock sugar(or to taste)
12 cups of water


材料:
2 cups/300 克 去皮白肉花生 
100-150克 冰糖 (或适量)
12 杯清水




1. Bring a big pot of water to boil, soaked the peanuts in hot water for 1-2 hours, if the peanuts you bought is with skins, the skins could be easily removed after soaking.

2. Wash the peanuts and place it in a heavy bottom cookware with 10 cups of water, bring to boil and turn heat to medium low, simmer for 3-5 hours or until peanuts become soft. Sweeten with rock sugar before serving.

Note:To save time, use a pressure cooker to cook the soaked peanut for 8 minutes after first whistle. And pour it into heavy bottom cookware with HOT WATER to continue cooking for 1-2 hours. 

DO NOT over cook it in pressure cooker as the soup may become greasy.


1. 先煮滚一锅水,倒到盆里和花生一起泡上1-2个小时。如果买的花生是还没去红衣的,热水泡过后搓搓,就很容易把红衣搓下。

2. 把花生洗干净后加10杯清水大火煮滚转中小火加盖炖3-5个小时。吃之前加入冰糖根据口味调味即可。

注:如果有高压锅,可以先用高压锅把花生和2杯清水压8分钟(汽笛响之后)。再倒入一般的锅里加热水炖煮1-2小时。

注二:高压时间不可太长,时间太长花生会开始泛油,花生汤就会浮着过多的油花,口感和味道都会变差。


Yummy and healthy Sweet peanut soup... good for cold fall weather!
