Healthy Thick Tofu Soup

Occasionally I loved to prepare this kind of soup that does not require much ingredients but the end result is a soup that can feed an 'army' - quite filling.  This is a meatless soup and should be considered healthy.  A quick cook soup if you like the ingredients like black fungus and Szechuan vegetable a little crunchy.
You  can add a few dried chillies too for a spicy version.
[serves 2-3]
1 piece soft tofu - cut strips
2 dried mushrooms - soaked and cut thin strips
1 floret black fungus [bok nee] - soaked and cut thin strips
30 gm Szechuan vegetable - rinsed and cut strips
1 small carrot - peeled and cut strips
a few tofu puffs - cut thin strips [optional]
700 ml water
1 tsp vegetarian stock granules [used chicken stock granules for non vegetarian]
1 tsp sesame oil
dash of pepper
some cornstarch mixture for thickening
some black vinegar [chit chor] or Shaoxing wine - optional
some Chinese celery [kin chye] - chopped
  1. Heat a soup pot with sesame oil, saute mushrooms, black fungus, Szechuan vegetable, carrot and tofu puffs for a several minutes to mix well.
  2. Pour in water, bring to boil.  Lower heat to simmer for about 10 minutes.
  3. Add seasoning to taste.  Add in tofu, bring to boil again.
  4. Thicken with cornstarch mixture to the consistency preferred.
  5. Dish up to serve with black vinegar [if prefered].   Garnish with chopped celery, serve immediately.

Kimmy, I like this type of "feed the army" soup too that can last for a few days. I would love to try it but waiting for next weekend because there is no water this weekend :(

Hi Kimmy,
I can add rice with soups like this, eaten with lots of chilli padi, see yau and a squeeze of lime.
And would slurp the bowl clean!

Hi Phong Hong, kei sian without water it's difficult to cook esp. the cleaning up. Hope rain comes soon.

Hi Joyce, initially I wanted to serve it with chit choe and some chilli padi like eating shark's fin soup, then I thought maybe next time when I cook this again.

Kimmy said...

Hi Lite Home Bake, you are accepted. Simple and tasty soup.

Hi Yen, my family loves this too. My hubby had a bowl first before eating the rice.
