Prepared this soup while recovering from sensitive teeth. The ingredients are all cut into thin strips for easier eating and swallowing. Never experience this kind of teeth condition whereby anything hard, sweet and cold that you put in your mouth could be so hurting that you feel like throwing out. Really affects your appetite.
No doubt, the condition gets better after a complete course of antibiotic which I was told it is only temporary relief, continuous care of sensitive teeth is crucial to avoid another onset.
This soup is a rescue to fill my tummy with food so that I can have my medication. Poor me.
BTW, this is a quick cook soft suitable for all in the family.
1 piece soft tofu - cut thin strips
100 gm lean meat - cut thin strips
1 small carrot - cut thin strips
2 dried mushrooms - soaked and cut thin strips
750 ml water
1/2 tsp salt and pepper to taste
a dash of sesame seed oil
some chopped spring onions or Chinese celery
- Marinate meat with some light soy sauce, pepper and sesame oil. Set aside.
- Bring water to boil in a soup pot. Add in the carrots and mushrooms, then the marinated meat. Stir to mix.
- Let it boil until all ingredients are soft. Add in tofu and seasoning to taste.
- Before serving, garnish with spring onions and add a dash of sesame oil.
