Double-boiled Starfish Soup with Fritillary Bulbs
Registered Dietitian (UK) and President of Hong Kong Nutrition Association, Mr. Gordon CHEUNG said, "The use of low-fat ingredients such as lean pork and skinless chicken could avoid an excessive intake of saturated fat, thereby preventing high cholesterol in the blood. As both the starfish and fritillary bulbs are able to enrich the flavour, the soup can be prepared with less salt and salty condiments to help maintain normal blood pressure."
