Home made broth / soup / stock is great!!….. when one has time…. But when I don’t and I fancy noodle soup but I DON’T fancy instant noodles… what happens? Hmmmm….
What do I need for dinner… or what do I need for any meal really? Carbs? Noodles. Vege? chinese leaf & spring onion. Protein? Egg. Okay.. ingredients sorted… This could easily be turned into fried noodles like yesterday… but I fancy something soupy.. what do I do now… Hmm… Stock cube? Nah too plain. Marmite or Bovril? Hmmm… don’t fancy that today… Oh I know!! That fermented tofu stuff in the fridge, yea that will do!! All right then, kettle on and away we go!
Tadaaaa!!!!! Dinner for pennies!!!
(I ended up adding a handful of frozen peas too, and the two darker bits at the bottom and right of the photo are a couple of tiny dried shiitake mushrooms which I bought because they are cheaper than the larger ones, and turned out being awesome because they don’t need a long soak to rehydrate, boiling for 5 minutes will do)
