    Clam Soup with White Gourd is a delicious and popular dish which appears on the dining tables of many families. The soup is made with clams, white gourd, and ginger. The ginger helps remove the fishy smell of the soup. White gourd is known for helping get rid of internal heat and the meat not only offers a variety of nutrients but also stimulates the appetite. This soup has a mellow taste and the salt brought out of the clams makes it unnecessary to add extra dressing or seasonings. This soup is a good choice to beat the summer heat.
