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.

In this recipe I didn’t use vegetable homemade, but I used vegetable broth for clear soup that is sold in a can at Asian groceries. It’s just a modified simple chicken and vegetable soup that I used to have while I was in Indonesia.

I love nutmeg flavor and prefer use the whole one than the ground one.

Simple Tofu and Vegetable Soup
My very own recipe

Ingredients:
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)

Sup Bunga Kol 3

Directions:
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.

  11. Yes. Open face sandwich for me if I'm lazy. I won't be even bothered to boil something like the soup.But of course, your combi is definitely a healthy lazy meal. Who says lazy meals are unhealthy?
