In our previous article on “Yinyang Elements”, we mentioned that “cooling” foods can aid ailments which afflict our pets in the “warming” conditions of sunny Singapore. Here’s a human-friendly “Steamed Cooling Coconut Recipe” to try out, to pet’s delight!
Minced pork – 80- 100gm
Chicken fillet (cubed) – 2 fillets
Wolfberries (Geiji) – 6pcs
Thai Coconut – 1pc
1/ Cut a circle and remove top of the coconut and strain the juice. Keep the juice aside.
2/ Add in minced pork, cubed chicken fillet and rinsed wolfberries into the coconut.
3/ Top up the coconut with coconut water with 1cm allowance from the top. Cover the top with the cut-out top.
4/ Place whole coconut in a bowl and steam in a big wok or steamer for about 45 mins.
5/ Once done, let it cool and serve as a soup.
6/ Coconut will lose some cooling effect once cooked. so you can add on the remaining uncooked juice.
7/ You can also add garnishing like wheatgrass, millet, or your usual supplements, before serving. Enjoy!
