Oyster Mushroom Soup
I decided a soup was in order. Just last weekend it was sunny spring and suddenly it's transformed into rainy days here.
Good thing I adore rainy days.
They give me an excuse to make soups like these. Noodles, tofu, cilantro, garlic, scallion and, of course, oyster mushrooms make this dish a filling one. My preference for soups I can chew should come across in this recipe. Don't get me wrong, a smooth pureed soup is nice as well. I think I have a need for some texture though. It feels like I don't get full without chewing a little, you know?
Here's to hoping it stays rainy this weekend so I can sit home, eat soup, watch movies and do those pesky taxes that have been looming over my head.
