You can make this ankake or thick tofu soup with leftover vegetables. My 2-year-old daughter gobbled it up! I recommend it as a late night meal for dieters. It has a comforting, gentle taste.
I made this soup when I had a package of leftover silken tofu left over.
Do not stir right after pouring in the beaten egg. If it starts to resemble egg drop soup, it is done. Use your favorite greens. I think it will taste good if you drizzle on sesame oil before serving. You could also use shredded imitation crab instead of chicken.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
