Since Friday was Chinese New Years and I was craving Hot & Sour Soup, I adapted a Jamie Oliver recipe this week.I think you can't go wrong with tangy and spicy.
1-2 fresh red chillies
freshly ground white pepper
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger
250 g (about 9 oz) shitake mushrooms, cleaned
225 g (about 8 oz) bamboo shoots , drained
groundnut oil , or vegetable oil
low-salt soy sauce
rice wine vinegar
1 tsp runny honey
1.5 litres (about 6 cups) hot organic vegetable stock
150 g (about 5 oz) firm tofu (I used whole 1lbpackage)
2 spring onions
1/2 bunch of chives
1 large free-range egg
Now let's check out the Souper Sundays kitchen and see who is here!
It's nice to have my friend Tina of Squirrel Head Manor back at Souper Sundays this week. Tina made Veggie Soup and said, "Not too much new in the kitchen this month but as we cleared out our fridge and freezer, useing leftovers and partial frozen bags of veggies so there is minimal waste. Roasted corn from Trader Joe's store. ... We tried it as a side dish and I have to say, it wasn't remarkable. Perhaps I added a bit too much water in the cooking method. ... I gave the corn another try adding it in a pot of soup. It was a good addition there. Leftover roasted potatoes and carrots, sliced onions rounded this out. Thickened with a bit of flour and broth and you have a hearty lunch for a cool day."
Shaheen of Allotment2Kitchen shared Sriracha Butternut Couscous Salad and said, "I had some
left over butternut squash that I roasted and tossed into some couscous
making this rather simple Salad. It was perked up a little Sriracha and
baby spinach from the garden for colour. Okay, I am off to have a lazy
weekend, which may mean sitting on the sofa under my blanket watching TV
and reading. But one thing for certain, I am turning off the computer
screen. Have a good weekend."
Finally here at Kahakai Kitchen, I made a (Mostly) Classic Tuna Salad Sandwich for a book review. It reminded me of how good a simple tuna sandwich on soft white bread with potato chips can be.
