Sound like a nice recipe.


The 丝瓜 we get in Chinese supermarkets State side are usually shorter and fatter.


We usually like to make a simple and refreshing soup, by stir frying it with some eggs and adding a whole bunch of water. Adding a tiny bit of salt at the end.


It has an earthy flavor, that imho goes really well with fried eggs.

Thanks! Agree with you that the flavor goes well with eggs. Sometimes I make 西瓜炒鸡蛋。

















And the kind of simple soup you describe is home cooking 家常菜 at its best.
