Papaya and Tofu Soup

Ingredients :

  • 1 small papaya, skinned and seeded.
  • 1 packet tofu.
  • 1 stick celery, sliced.
  • 1 small onion, peeled, quartered.
  • 1 lt chicken stock.
  • 1 sprig coriander.
  • salt and pepper

Directions :

  • Cut the papaya into bite-size pieces and the tofu into large cubes.
  • Strain the chicken stock till the soup is clear. Bring to boil.
  • Add the celery and onion. Gently simmer for a while.
  • When the onions turn translucent, add the papayas. Simmer until the papayas are soft.
  • Do not over cook the papaya. Add the tofu cubes slowly and simmer until they’re heated through. Season according to taste.
  • Before serving, add coriander leaves. For a tastier soup, scatter with fried sliced shallots.

TIP :

For good chicken stock, boil chicken bones with slice of fresh ginger. If you wish, add one or two honey dates. Chicken stock keeps for a week or two when frozen. To use, simply thaw and add your favourite Vegetables or meat. The trick to good soups is to serve them piping hot!
