Another soup to add to the list of weight watcher soups to have prior to your meal, one cup is only worth 1 pt and helps fill up your belly. I make the soup on a Sunday so that I have it pre-made during the busy work week and just use it till it is gone.
WW =1 PT/1 cup serving
6 c. fat free chicken broth
2 T. rice vinegar
1 t. Saracha Sauce (some call it rooster sauce)
1 pkg sliced crimini mushrooms
1 C. firm diced tofu
1 can bamboo shoots sliced (matchbook slice)
1 T. soy sauce
¼ C. dried black fungus
2 green onions, sliced
1. Combine all soup ingredients except black fungus & green onion in soup pot lightly simmer until mushrooms are tender (about 7-10 min)
2. Meanwhile soak dried fungus in hot tap water for 7-10 min. Drain & squeeze excess water from fungus. Slice mushrooms, & add fungus to soup mixture.
3. Serve in soup bowl topped with green onions
*Note: The original recipe does not call for the black fungus, but in my attempt to make it authentic I started adding the black fungus and it adds just the right texture to the soup.
My husband and my daddy's favorite soup!
