Chicken and Dried Tofu Skin Soup

I bought a pack of dried tofu skin or soy bean sheet long time ago,thinking of making dessert soup with it but tomorrow comes and go.The dried tofu skin still sitting in my pantry,as they said out of sight out of mind,right? Well,while cleaning and re-arranging my grocery in the pantry I decided to make chicken soup with dried tofu skin..This soup is not bad at all.It's has smooth clear soft tofu skin taste like jello!! Thumb up!!

5 liter water
1/2 pack dried bean curd sheet(crunchy type)6-8 pieces drumstick,cleaned or any part of chicken
1-2 carrot,peeled and cut 2 inch
1 tbsp ground white pepper
salt to taste
handful cut scallion


1:Soak dried tofu sheet in water for 30 minutes or longer.Prepare water in large stock pot at high heat.Seive soaked tofu skin into the stock pot.

2:Boil tofu skin for 30 minutes before add in carrot and chicken drumstick.Reduce heat to medium and continue simmer the soup for another 1 hour.

3:Add in pepper powder and salt.Remove soup from heat.Check the seasoning.Dish soup into a bowl,sprinkle some cut scallion and serve warm.
