tomato egg flower soup
1.1L chicken stock
225g fresh or tinned tomatoes
2 small eggs
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon green spring onion tops finely chopped
Put the chicken stock into a pot and bring it to a simmer.
If you are using fresh tomatoes peel seed and cut them into 1 inch (2 5 cm) cubes.
If you are using tinned tomatoes chop them into small chunks.
Lightly beat the eggs and then combine them with the sesame oil in a small bowl.
Add the light soy sauce and salt to the simmering stock and stir to mix them in well.
Then add the tomatoes and simmer for 5 minutes.
Next stir in the spring onions and then add the egg mixture in a very slow thin stream.
Using a chopstick or fork pull the egg slowly into strands. (stirring the egg in a figure of eight works quite well.)
Garnish with the finely chopped spring onion tops.
Tomatoes were introduced into China only 100 years ago. They were gradually adopted into southernChinese cuisine and have become one of its most popular ingredients. Their intense sweet flavour brilliant colour and versatility lend them perfectly to Chinese cookery. Here they are used to enhance my adaptation of the traditional eggflower soup. The eggflowers are simply strands of lightly beaten eggs which float on the surface of the soup like lilies on a pond. This effect iscreatedbygentlyguidingtheeggs over the soup in strands instead of dropping the mixture in all at once which would cause the egg to lump together. The egg mixture slightly thickens the soup which nevertheless remains very light.
This is an impressivelooking soup but it is very easy to make. It is especially delightful in summer when fresh tomatoes are at their most plentiful. Although tinned tomatoes are acceptable fresh ones are always preferable.
