My laziness was coming back. I just made easy dinner for us. While I enjoyed this soup with warmed rice, my husband enjoyed it with open face ham sandwiches. The ham is not a real ham but soy ham for the vegetarians.
I love nutmeg flavor and prefer use the whole one than the ground one.
Simple Tofu and Vegetable Soup
My very own recipe
3 cloves garlic
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 -1 whole nutmeg, grated (I prefer use whole nutmeg than ground nutmeg)
750 L vegetable broth
750 L water
300 g carrots, peeled and cut as desired
250 g cauliflower florets
6 frozen fried bean (tofu) balls (Indonesian: tahu pong/tahu sumedang), halved
ground white pepper
salt (only if you like saltier food, I didn’t add any salt, since the broth has salt in it)
Chinese celery leaves, chopped (I didn’t have them, so I added cilantro instead)
1. Bring vegetable broth and water to a boil. Meanwhile, saute garlic, onion and nutmeg until fragrant.
2. Transfer garlic mixture to a broth pot. Add vegetables, keep cooking until all vegetables slightly tender. Add frozen fried bean balls and cilantro. Let simmer for 10 minutes more. Remove from heat.
