James Kitchen – Winter Melon Meatball Soup
I’m very glad to be the first guest to share my recipe in James’ Kitchen. I would like to introduce you to a warm, calming soup that has many health benefits and is perfect for Winter.
Winter melon, or wax gourd, is a vegetable used in many types of Asian cookings. Winter melon is known for its ability to last through the Winter season, and for its neutral, mild, and detoxifying properties in herbal medicine and food therapy. Winter melon is often used in recipes that are recommended to people with certain chronic disease, and it is available in most Asian grocery stores and markets.
This recipe is suitable for people on a low carb, low sodium, or low fat diet.
