Last night, my housemate made a very simple 30 minutes meal comparable to 'Jamie's 30 minutes meal' dishes, if not better! Chop, dice, slice, marinate, fry, boil...in that order...we get a very nice dinner.
You must be wondering now what dish was made last night?
|Mee Hoon Soup|
The main ingredients are chicken, tofu, tomoatoes, mushrooms and of course rice vermicelli or mee hoon. The chicken was first marinated with salt, flour, soy sauce and a bit of cooking wine. Then all prepared the ingredients were boiled in water with chicken stock until the flavours come out and you can smell the fragrance of it. Cooked Mee Hoon we bought from Tesco was put into two bowls and sprinkled with some sesame oil, then the soup was poured into each bowl.
The soup was extremely delicious. It has the sweet and salty taste of chicken stock and chicken bones, the sour taste from tomatoes and a very nice touch of sesame oil from the mee hoon. To perfect the dish, it was garnished sauteed shallots and garlic and this just brings the dish to life!
So good I had second helpings!
PS now I am looking forward to tomorrow's spaghetti with meatballs! so watch this space...
