1. Pour boiling water, and it's best to pour it all at once. This is the key to the milky soup! Of course, if there is broth, it is better, so that the amaranth tastes better;
2. Fried preserved eggs with oil can effectively remove the alkaline taste of preserved eggs, which can stimulate the umami taste of preserved eggs more than directly boiled in the soup;
3. The blanching time of amaranth must be grasped. Amaranth is very easy to cook. If the heat is not controlled well, it will lose its tender taste, so pay attention to it;
4. Amaranth must be tender. When buying vegetables, you can check the thickness of the roots to see if the roots are easily broken, etc. You can refer to various aspects, or just remove the roots, leaving only the leaves;
