qīngdùn ròutāng


A clear soup with concentrated flavour. The base may be a clear stock of beef, game or poultry. It is often mixed with egg whites for clarification before serving. The colour of the consommé can be changed by including beetroot or tomatoes and the garnishes are many and various, either vegetables finely chopped one way or another or small pieces of pasta orherbs, all of which should enhance the clarity of the soup.
