Tomato Soup with King Oyster Mushroom

Posted by Admin on Food & Drinks

Tomatoes were real cheap S$1 for 1kg. And tomatoes are rich in Vitamin A & C and contain Vitamin B too. Also a good source of calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and dietary fibre. Therefore, I decided to make this tomato soup! It is pretty easy, give it a try. If you can’t find king oyster mushroom, you can substitute with toasted tempeh cubes, just add them in prior to serving. Silken Tofu is also another good choices …
