|Unlike my other 老火汤 recipes which require long hours of simmering, this is a relatively no-frills soup which can be done in a jiffy. |
So, if you are pressed for time yet craving for soup, this is the recipe for you.
This is quite a light soup as the main ingredients are just Tofu and Seaweed. You may like to add some seafood, meatballs or even Yong Tau Foo to make the taste more robust.
I happened to have some Prawns and Fish Maw lying around in the fridge so I added those into the soup as well.
Here are some benefits of Seaweed:
- Prevents fat absorbtion
- Reduces water retention
- Promotes mental youthfulness
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
1 box Tofu (cubed)
Seaweed (tear into shreds)
1 litre of Chicken Stock
Assorted seafood (Prawns, Squid, Fish, etc)
Directions:1) Bring Chicken Stock to a boil
2) Add Tofu and any seafood or meat
3) Sprinkle Seaweed shreds over the soup just before serving
4) Serve hot
