Chinese ABC Soup is a simple to make (that's why it's called "ABC"), nutritious Asian soup/broth using basic ingredients such as chicken, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes and onions. The traditional way of making takes 2-3 hours of simmering on the stove.

For time poor people, this Thermomix version takes only 15-20 minutes and it tastes reasonably close to the traditional ABC soup.     

The secret ingredient is the Asian Chicken Stock Paste. I use Su's version, which is on the recipe community website. 

You may vary the ingredients according to your preference, e.g. add corn, replace chicken with pork, omit potatoes, omit celery, etc.

    We liekd this, it was perfect for the weather we've been having. I didn't have the asian chicken stock so just used normal but it still turned out fine.
