How to make fish soup from the Philippines – recipe

Fish soup with moringa leaves from the Philippines

Fish soup with moringa leaves … mmm!

CFCA serves more than 43,000 sponsored children and elderly in the Philippines. Our staff members there sent us this lovely recipe for fish soup!

This can serve a family of 6.


  • Sliced fish (any kind)
  • 1 plate of moringa leaves (substitute spinach or chard as moringa leaves are almost impossible to find in the U.S.)
  • 8 cups of water
  • 5 leaves of lemongrass
  • 10 slices of ginger
  • 1 whole onion slice
  • 6 pieces of green onion stalks
  • 3 regular-size tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons of salt and seasoning to taste

Boil 8 cups of water and mix onion, tomatoes, ginger and lemongrass in it for 10 seconds.

Add the fish and let it boil for 2 minutes.

Add salt and seasoning to taste.

Add moringa leaves and onion leaves to the soup and leave for 10 seconds. Serve hot.
