I have been busy and have not been having dinner at home for the past 1-2 weeks. I have been craving for home broiled soup. My principle for cooking is always using what I can find in the kitchen and fridge. So during the weekend, I made a fast and simple dinner. The dishes were -
1. Herbal chicken soup
2. Stir fry beansprouts with bittergourd and salted veggies
3. Spicy tofu chicken
The herbal chicken soup was easy. Adding the chicken meat and a pack of prepacked Chinese herbs, and boiled for more than 2 hours. For the stir-fry beansprouts, I added some strips of bittergourd, and salted veggies as well as a little pork belly slices. As for the spicy chicken tofu, I had a little of leftover cooked assam chicken, so I decided to create another dish with ingredients like onions, mushrooms, tofu, and egg.
My dishes ready for dinner! The herbal chicken soup was the best and I finally satisfied my craving for soup. As for the stir-fry beansprouts, it was so so, as I usually do not like tau gay very much. The spicy chicken tofu was so delicious, although it looked a little mashy and messy. All the ingredients combined resulted in a wonderful wet dish of tofu, chicken, onions, mushrooms and the sweet taste of egg.
