Pork Rib Watercress and Goji Berry Soup


Junk food tastes really amazing, but the superfoods don’t always taste as good.

Watercress and Goji Berries as superfoods have been increasing in popularity in recent years. They have been used to treat high blood pressure, boost metabolism and energy in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. The raw watercress just like mustard and radishes, has a potent peppery taste. But when you cook it, the watercress releases a surprisingly flowery aroma.

Watercress and Goji berry pork rib soup is one of the tasty Chinese food therapy. It is a fresh and delicious soup, full of flavor and brimming with nutritional goodness. The meat is very tender and almost falling off the ribs and the Goji berries give a more delicate and sweet flavor. The watercress only needs to be added towards the end of the cooking to retain its vibrant green color and add a fresh flowery taste to the soup.
