Category: Appetizers, Soups, Vegetarian

 Ingredients List

  • 8 Dried chinese mushrooms
  • 8 c Vegetable stock
  • 8 sl Ginger, peeled
  • 1/2 Lime, peeled & sliced thin
  • 4 tb Lime juice
  • 1 tb Lemon juice
  • 2 tb Soy sauce
  • 2 Chilies
  • 1 lb Firm tofu, cut into chunks
  • Cilantro, chopped


Rinse the mushrooms, put them in a small saucepan and cover with water.
Bring them to a boil on high heat and swish the mushrooms to remove excess
dirt. Discard the water. Rinse. Once again, cover the mushrooms and bring
them to a boil, covered. Let sit 1 hour. Then drain, remove tough stems,
squeeze out excess water and slice or cut in half. Bring the stock to a
boil in a large saucepan on high heat, add the ginger and lime slices and
cook for 2-3 minutes. Lower the heat and add the lime and lemon juice, soy
sauce and chilies. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add tofu and mushrooms and simmer
5 more minutes. Taste to check the balance of hot, sour and salt none
should overwhelm the other ~- and add more chilies, lime juice or soya
sauce as needed.

Serve garnished with chopped cilantro. Have a side dish of extra sliced
chilies for those who like it hot. Keeps a few days refrigerated but it is
best served fresh.
