Vegetarian Loufah Soup

Sometimes, I have a strong urge to go meatless for a meal or two.  Here is a very simple soup which I prepared and served with my Steamed Garoupa.  
[serves 2]
1 loufah - remove the skin and cut wedges
some black fungus - soaked and break into small pieces
some carrots - sliced
any dried mushrooms - soaked and cut smaller pieces
a handful of taufu puffs - cut half
1 cup water or vegetarian soup stock
some light soy sauce, salt, msg and pepper to taste
1 tsp sesame oil
  1. Heat sesame oil in a claypot.  Saute mushrooms until aromatic.  Add in black fungus and carrot.  Stir fry to mix ingredients.  
  2. Pour in water or stock and add in seasoning.  Bring it to a boil, then add in taufu puffs.  Boil for 1-2 minutes.  Taste to adjust seasoning.
  3. Lastly add in the loufah to cook.  Off fire once the loufah is soft.
  4. Serve immediately.
Can add a few slices of ginger, fried garlic crisps and steamboat stock for more aromatic soup
