Tofu Soup

This is the soup I enjoyed cooking lately, it’s simple yet flavorsome.

If you like shark fin soup, this recipe will taste something-like-that (according to hubby) but of course, it requires less expensive ingredients - see here for recipe.



I like my soup to be less thick, so I did not put too much corn starch in it; besides, I’ve added some brown mushroom this time. It gave extra flavour to the soup.

P/S: I omit vinegar from the menu but I have always added a little Shaoxing Wine. It tastes superb!


(I chose to serve in claypot but it is really up to you.)

很好的食谱以及详细的介绍!感谢大大详细介绍。

根据中医本草纲目,燕窝可以入药改善体质,所以我也会吃即食燕窝。

不过我的医生说太甜的不可以吃,会提高了娠妊糖尿病的风险,所之前在网上找到这个网站 http://www.geocities.jp/hongkong_bird_nest/index_e.htm ,有无糖的家庭装,来自香港的,都是著名品牌。很方便啊!

Voon:
Aiyak, boleh tahan saja yah?:-)
For me, I kinda like the tofu to be cut that small strip. But of course, you may always cut it bigger.
Happy Friday!

Sandy:
Thanks for your comment.
You may give a try on the recipe and
I have provided the link in the post.

Moon:
Do you like the one that your MIL cooked one? I am sure it taste good.
It is very simple ingredients and simple to cook. Give it a try.
Yes, the second plate is brown mushroom and tofu.
I think Silken Tofu is box Tofu. I did not know what is that means but I just used box Tofu, hehe.
Actually I started cooking the soup in normal pot and once it is cooked only pour it into claypot. I like it to serve extremely hot!
It is absolutely ok to serve it in a bowl.

HweiLi, Mery:

Give a try and hope you will like it.

wah...serving in a claypot looks more delicious.

Hui Li:
I always tell my husband..
"claypot" is a "sat sao gan" (cantonese) in most dishes. Food which served with it will taste extra good and look tempting too, hehe.
