Batchoy Soup

Have you tried Exotic “internal” ingredients on your meal?….This dish is made from pork hearts, kidney, lungs and liver. Dare to try it?   Originally, the recipe also comes with pork blood, but since I could not find any pork blood here in NZ, I just leave the blood. Batchoy is a noodle soup made with pork organs and some vegetables. Originated in Philippines specifically in southern island………….Did you know that those internal organs I mentioned such as pork liver are good source of vitamin A. The vitamin A found in liver is beneficial to you in a number of ways. It contributes to healthy fertility and proper embryo development. It also helps children to avoid developing asthma, prevents kidney stones, regulates blood sugar and fats. Additionally, the vitamin A found in liver can protect you from some environmental toxins and helps to promote proper development during puberty. The vitamin A and arachidonic acid in liver can improve the health and appearance of your hair and skin. ……
