A very simple and delicious chicken and ho fun noodle soup.

Homemade chicken stock, fresh tofu fried in olive oil, lightly steamed Chinese kale and water spinach, bean sprouts. The garnish was a little coriander, fried garlic, crashed roasted peanuts and some delicious fermented cabbage.

I really enjoyed making it 😊

Thanks Jerry, we all enjoyed it very much. I think overall it has to be one of our favourite dish dishes. The days going fine πŸ™‚

Thanks RT 😊

😊Yum! That tofu looks delicious! No matter how I've tried, I have never been able to replicate the amazingly tasty dishes I enjoyed so much, with tofu in its many forms, whilst living in Taiwan, and spending time in Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia etc. The name of a particular form of tofu escapes me, but it was like a kind of crinkled skin, I think fermented, would you know what it is I'm trying to remember? I don't think it was Stinky tofu, but it could have been.

The only one I know of is a dried tofu, I know of the stinky tofu. But the name alone puts me of even thinking of trying it.Tofu with its mild flavour will partly take on the flavour of what ever your using with it.

In my local market the people there specialise in tofu and tempeh, they also do one that is partly dried or partly cooked, you could say it has a crinkly skin but stillsoft inside. Everything is homemade, i have bought all ther products many times. And their all lovely.

They normally sale out very early in morning so we don't always get a look in.

The one I like the best is smooth and soft, not easy to fry, its mainly for soups, but I can still fry it. πŸ™‚

Yep, I think it could be the dried one. Thank you.Yes, it was my inability to come up with a half decent sauce that made my attempts non too appetising, not the poor tofu! πŸ˜„

It's fantastic that you can buy a huge range of SE Asian goodies here in the UK, including some great sauces, but I am a bit restricted by certain intolerances etc, so would have preferred to try and make things from scratch, but am now reliant mostly on my poor OH to cook.

I suspected it wasn't the tofu fault 😁I lived in London, very cosmopolitan city, the shopping is probably the only thing I miss sometimes..

πŸ˜† The shopping is probably the one thing I never missed in the 4 and a half years I was away!

Ha ha I know I know, it's just a few things that I sometimes miss, I have made some of them, suppose i could make more of an effort and make a few more things that i's all Mediterranean food. Maybe try to make olive bread today to start the ball rolling. 😊

Your bowl of soup looks so yummy Happyman4 πŸ˜‹ All those combination of herbs, veggies, and fried garlic give such a good aroma and kick for the soup. Thank you for sharing with us. Have a wonderful day! πŸ˜ŠπŸ™β˜€οΈπŸŒΊ

Thank you GreatMindfulness, it was really delicious, I plan to go to the market early this morning and buy some rice noodles and make some more of the same soup but with fish cake and dried shiitake mushrooms. I was in Cambodia just recently and I was amazed that some of the vegetables they sold in the markets were far better in quality then the same variety in Thailand, and I really missed that.. just a week ago a lady in our local market has started selling the same as what I had bought in Cambodia.. Chinese kale, sum choy and cucumbers, so we are very happy about that, good price to..😊

I love Cambodia. I traveled there few years ago to see the Angkor Wat, so much fun with the night market. I saw people sitting there got little fish pedicures. πŸ˜… I got lotsssss of stuffs out of American dollars over there. It was a shopping spree of a lifetime πŸ˜‚ You know I saw them grow lots of vegetables in their backyard so probably that’s why the quality is so great. I’m so glad you spotted this lady with reasonable price selling her best quality vegetables. Oh my fish cake is sooo yummy, my mom usually makes a whole bunch and have them frozen for me to pick up. 🀣 Love love love mushrooms. Can’t wait to see your soup post coming up πŸ˜‹

We, as in the whole family did a tour of angkor wat. November 2019, used up lots of U S dollars in Cambodia. It will be starting daylight soon, time to do my early morning exercises in the garden. πŸ™‚

I went to the flower market yesterday to pick up two of the nopal cactus that I ordered after reading your post, I did have one about 6 years ago but planted it outside my front garden wall, I can't remember what happened to it, anyway I found another red jackfruit tree while I was there and bought it and had it planted in the garden within an hour after buying. So am very much looking forward to daylight this morning. I can see a little orange in the sky now and the birds have really joined in with the frogs now.😁

Oh yayyyy you are going to grow some nopal cactus πŸ˜πŸ‘ You are making your garden a wonderland now. I’m reading your reply laughing so hard β€œa little Orange” πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ I call it a little egg yolk πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Have a great start of the week! 😊

Had to do my exercises while it was still a little cool, it gets very hot very quickly in the mornings lately, I took a photo of the cactus I got yesterday, still in the bags πŸ™‚

One purple and one green.

Yes the weather over there was hot and humid as I remembered. I was a bit tired during daytime but I went in the pool or the beach snorkeling so it helped. Night time was nice though. Nopal cactus is considered easily planted. You will get the fruits, chop up the pads and make some delicious and healthy salad. πŸ˜πŸ‘

Yes the cactus is very easy to propagate, I remember when the one I had before got big, a piece broke of and it started to grow there without me even knowing. πŸ˜‚ I have to say that I have never eaten the actual cactus itself, the guy that I got these from said he had one that you can eat..but he was also trying to sale me his goat..πŸ™„

Oh my goshhhh Happyman, you are sooo funny. You gotta buy his goat to get a sample of his cactus πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚. I guess cactus grows itself, my type of tree πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ Thank you for so many laughs you gave me always. πŸ˜πŸ™

What time is it in California now, I thought you be asleep, its 10 .17 here. Just sitting down for breakfast. Yep I bought his goat. ☺

It’s like 9pm here so no sleepy head yet πŸ˜‚. It must be some really good cactus for you to buy his goat. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ Enjoy your breakfast! πŸ˜πŸ‘

Okay, that's good, I was just about to put on a post and then go help my wife in the garden, we bought a lot of small plants that need repotting..πŸ™‚

Have a great day team work with your lovely wife, plenty of fun together in the garden! 😊

Okay thanks...😊
