Fun Kot/Arrowroot Carrot Soup ~ 粉葛猪尾骨胡萝卜汤

In this hot, humid weather and more so during this 'lock down' period, it's good to have your meals with a refreshing and light soup.  Here, I'm sharing with you a Fun Kot/Arrowroot Carrot Soup with some pig tail bones.  Arrowroot is a type of root vegetable which is free from gluten, low in calories and high in protein.  I shared another Fun Kot soup in my blog, long time ago and you can check it 'here' if you want a variation.
