Re: Cooking Time

So skipped 5th block of school today, naughty me.
But when I did I went home and I made some delcious, Hot and sour soup with shrimp ; )
My fave soup ever, it was so good with the taste of the shrimp and tofu combined made my mouth water all over.


3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup presliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 (8-ounce) can sliced bamboo shoots, drained
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
8 ounces reduced-fat firm tofu, drained and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1 large egg white, beaten
1/4 teaspoon chili oil
2 tablespoons chopped green onions

What to do:

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Add juice, pepper, shrimp, and tofu to pan; bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes or until shrimp are almost done. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl, stirring until smooth. Add cornstarch mixture to pan; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly with a whisk. Slowly drizzle egg white into pan, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in chili oil and onions.

Easy simple and tastey ; )
