It ‘s soup weather!

Be it that chill in the air or that annoying cough and cold that’s bothering you, this is one hearty soup that will comfort your senses. Inherently low in calories, it can be the perfect 11 am snack! Plus you can toss in any ingredients of your choice from chicken, noodles to mushroom and veggies. Here is what I made.

Ingredients: Serves 4

Vegetable stock – 32 oz ( 1 medium carton)

Soy sauce – 1 tbsp

Tamarind pulp – 1 tbsp

Hot sauce ( Sriracha) 1 tbsp

Brown sugar – A pinch

Salt to taste

Tofu and shiitake mushrooms – cut into small cubes and sautéed in olive oil

Egg noodles –1 small cup cooked

Cilantroe – Finely chopped 2 tbsp

Fresh ginger shredded– 1 tbsp

In a large pan, bring the vegetable stock to a simmer. Do not let it boil. Add the soy sauce, chili sauce and tamarind paste, sugar and salt to taste.  In a separate pan, sautee the tofu and mushrooms with salt and olive oil. Add this and the cooked noodles to individual bowls just before serving or the mushroom/tofu will become too soggy. Garnish with cilantroe and fresh shredded ginger.
