Angel Confinement Meals Signature Dishes

1. Pig’s Trotter in Ginger & Vinegar

Did you know that pig’s trotter has high protein and calcium content? This actually helps the bones and joints of new mothers. Imagine after the energy used for labour, your bones and joints need some healing. Other than that, the collagen in the pig’s trotter is thought to boost milk production. But that’s not all as they also promote the health of the skin and hair. Aside from warming the body, ginger also aids with digestion, purifies the bloodstream, and stimulates the female’s appetite. Overall, this dish has just enough spice from the ginger and isn’t too sour, considering vinegar was used. The pig’s trotter is succulent and tender, and incredibly tasteful as well. 

2. Dang Gui & Bei Qi Black Chicken Soup

The ability of Dang Gui to nourish and energise the blood makes it an excellent remedy for menstrual irregularities and postpartum exhaustion. Furthermore, it promotes qi, which improves bodily functions and energy levels. Black chicken is also full of antioxidants, which can help prevent colds. This is incredibly important during confinement as the woman’s body is more prone to falling sick. We have to say this chicken soup intrigues us. From the first spoon up to the last, every bite was flavourful and warm. Although the chicken did not have much meat, we were fine with it as the soup definitely covers for it. 

3. Fenugreek Green Papaya Milky Fish Soup

Breastfeeding mothers benefit greatly from fenugreek, green papaya, and fish, which are all known to stimulate milk production. Iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and folate, a natural source of vitamin B, are also found in green papaya. Other than that, you can also find immune-boosting vitamins like A, C, E, and K. If you’ve never had milky fish soup then we highly recommend you try this dish. It’s unlike other clear soup bases, as this has some depth when it comes to flavours. The papaya also has some bite but is soft enough to digest easily. All in all, we enjoy this milky fish soup and will definitely reorder!

4. Liu Wei Nourishing Pork Rib Soup

This well-known confinement soup feeds the spleen, which in turn helps digestion and the body’s “qi” vitality. Antioxidants, vitamins, and anti-inflammatory properties are found in the plants and substances employed. Moreover, it also helps improve lung and renal function. We’ve definitely tasted this soup before and this one by Angel Confinement Meals is just as good. If you’re someone who likes lean meat as we do, then this soup should definitely be on your list. When eaten hot, it truly warms your entire body. 

5. Cordyceps Blossom Stew Chicken With Benedictine Herbal wine

Benedictine Herbal wine coupled with Cordyceps will boost the mother’s immune system. It will also replenish her “qi,” or vital life force. In addition to its muscle-building properties, chicken is also a nutrient-dense protein that’s easy on the stomach. Like how all confinement food keeps our body warm, this one was particularly delightful when eaten hot. It keeps your body warm while nourishing it with the right amount of Chinese herbs. The chicken was soft and juicy, after absorbing the herbal soup. We definitely recommend this dish if you’re looking to get something from Angel Confinement Meals.

6. Huang Qi & Dang Shen Pork Rib Soup

The immune system, lungs, and spleen can all benefit from the anti-inflammatory properties of Huang Qi. While the blood-nourishing properties of Dang Shen help the body produce more healthy red blood cells. Additionally, this soup has antibacterial characteristics that aid digestion. We definitely think the pork shines in this dish. But that doesn’t take the spotlight away from the complementing vegetables. They were soft and easy to chew, honestly perfect for confinement. 

7. Lotus Root & Peanut Chicken Soup

Lotus root’s fibre and complex carbs aid digestion and help maintain healthy levels of blood sugar and cholesterol. Together with peanuts, they are an excellent source of a wide range of nutrients. This includes potassium, magnesium, and zinc. Because it contains as much protein as chicken, this is definitely a filling dish. Small eaters can rejoice as this soup will surely fill you up. So you will not need to order any other extra dishes. It’s also a common dish in Chinese cuisine. Therefore, if you’re someone who is less adventurous with food, this will suit you.
