Korean Tofu Soup

From young, I had very little exposure to Korean food in Malaysia. Since I have been back to Malaysia 6 months ago, I have seen more Korean restaurants mushrooming in KL but I must say that the Korean restaurants in USA are pretty good. Maybe it is due to a larger population of Koreans residing in States. Infact my favourite Supermarket in Dallas where I stayed is a Korean supermarket named Super H Mart.

I can get just about any Asian groceries there and it provides a really pleasant shopping experience. It naturally has a wide selection of Korean delicacies.

Thus my dish for this posting is Korean inspired. My cousin KC told me about the quick and easy way to make Korean Kimchi Soup by just getting a ready pack of soup ingredients. It comes with a packet called Tofu Broth Seasoning. It is really easy to make. All you have to get is the rest of the ingredients.

I used a pack of soft tofu, one egg, some shrimps (you can add others eg. chicken, squid etc), thinly sliced cabbage or lettuce.

Put water ( approx. 3 Chinese bowls) to boil in a pot . Add in the seasoning, the vegetables and the tofu. Let it cook and simmer for 3 minutes.

Add in the shrimps since it takes shorter time to cook. Let it boil and just before you switch off the gas stove, break one or 2 eggs into the soup.

That's all. My easy to make Korean Tofu Soup is ready! Yum!

hi, I actually used a ready made seasoning called Tofu Broth Seasoning which can be found in Asian or Korean supermarkets here in USA.
