The milky bowl of sliced fish bee hoon is often thought of as one of the few hawker favourittes that qualify as healthier options.

But, as celebrity chef Eric Teo demonstrates, there are ways to make it even more nutritious.

Instead of the usual white bee hoon strands, we swopped it with brown rice spaghetti.

Such whole grain noodles typically boast more fibre and B Vitamins compared with products made with refined grains, which are usually stripped of such nutrients.

Eating more whole grains has been shown to lower the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

Mr Teo, who devised the healthier recipe also opted to use low-fat evaporated milk in the soup.

The move helps to cut down the fat content of the dish without robbing it of its familiar taste.

Tips :
1. Skim away visible fat or oil after cooking soup-based dishes to lower the fat content of the dish.
2. Select low-salt soup stocks or prepare homemade soup stocks using fresh ingredients, herbs and spices.
