I opened the package to reveal this tiny ziplock bag:
|Not suspicious at all|
|There's fake prawns ('frawns'), fake sausage, tofu and other more seafoody things|
It didn't say to chop them up, but I'm a cheapskate.
Added to the broth:
I chopped up cabbage, cauliflower, pak choy and carrots to put in with the soup and then put it all together.
It was pretty good. We added a dash of Kikkoman Soy sauce to each bowl. We only use Kikkoman as directed on the little bottle ;)
The broth: could have been a little saltier (thus the soy), but pretty much reminded me of hot pot/won ton broth. As a carb freak, I knew I should have added in rice noodles (we definitely need bigger soup bowls - not enough depth to add noodles on top of the veggies you can see sticking out).
The fake meats: tasted pretty much the same as other fake seafoods I've had (the non-seaweed based ones). Reminded me a lot of the fake meats you'd find in the Laksa at the now defunct ID Cafe in the Valley (sniff).
It was a nice change for dinner. We have leftovers for dinner tonight, so hopefully it will be just as good.
