Hot Soup in the Office

One of my best "kitchen investment" so far is my La Gourmet Thermal Cooker. Bought it about 6 months ago and I just love it!

Main reason I bought it was to cook and bring soup to the office. Soup, particularly raw papaya soup is supposed to boost milk supply. Well, I'll do (almost) anything to increase my supply.


Hot Papaya and Corn Soup for my morning & afternoon tea break.
Yummy!



Cooking soup is such a breeze with this pot. What I do:

1.  At night - Cut ingredients for soup. (carrot/papaya/ corn/lotus root/ onion/potato etc)
     Transfer one portion of meat (I use either pork loin/pork ribs/chicken thigh/chicken breast) from freezer to fridge.
2. Morning - Boil water in inner pot. Chuck meat and soup ingredients into pot.  (if I have time, I boil the meat first then throw away water to remove scum).  I also like to add in red dates and wolfberries.
3. Boil for 10-15 mins.  (during this time, I shower, get myself ready for work and pack up my milk pump, ice-pack & bottles)
4. Carefully place inner pot inside outer pot.   DONE!


It's really nice to have hot piping soup in the office  :)    Ha ha....practically my whole office knows it when I bring my soup.  Should be good for loosing weight too, since I take the soup instead of eating biscuits.   (well, I use the word "should" since I'm actually NOT loosing any weight these days. *sobs*)

I  take it for my afternoon tea break too. By then, it's warm not hot but still good enough for me.



Hopefully, more soup = more milk supply = happier baby :)
