Shrimp and Tofu Soup

The weather at the east coast is getting crazier everyday!! Last week we just had snow storm and this morning we have another 4 inches of snow..This evening the weather forecaster said we are going to get another snow fall this coming Tuesday.Since the weather is freezing cold,I cooked some soup for myself at lunch..Nothing elaborated,just used shrimp flavor bouillon as the soup base ,chopped in some napa,add in head attached shrimp before toss in silky tofu..There you go...A welcome sight seeing a bowl of hot pipping soup mixed with steamed white rice served as lunch in a cold snowy day.It's really a nice comfort food for us who are dealing with freezing cold weather... Love the soft silkily tofu texture and shrimp in this soup..










Ingredients:
2 liters of water
2 cubes shrimp or chicken bouillon
6-8 leaves of Napa,washed and cut
15 head attached shrimp,trim and washed
1 box soft silkily tofu,cut 6-8 pieces
salt and ground white pepper powder to taste
handful cut scallion
Method:
1:Bring water to boil in a medium small size stock pot at high heat.Add in shrimp bouillon stock.When soup base bubbly boil,add in napa and clean shrimp.
2:Cook for another 10 minutes before add in cut tofu ,salt and pepper powder..Check the seasoning.Remove soup from heat.Dish out ,sprinkle with scallion before serve hot with rice..
