Glass Noodle Soup With Dried Scallops, Minced Pork & Cherry Tomatoes 粉丝肉碎蕃茄汤


Recipe Source :  Adapted from Lisa Magazine

I have earmarked this recipe for a long, long time but I just got round to trying it out today. I was flipping through my collection of cookbooks, magazines and newspaper cuttings looking for something nice to cook, a dish that uses tomatoes as I wanted to participate in  Little Thumbs Up . Their  theme for March is "tomato". I guess this dish would be perfect for March as it uses cherry tomatoes. 

SK, YS and I, gave the thumbs up to this glass noodle soup!



50g dried scallops (soak and shred)
120g glass noodle (soak till soft, drain and set aside)
200g minced pork

1 tbsp cooking oil 

Marinade For Minced Pork

1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
