Hot & Sour Soup 3 Recipe
8 dried chinese mushrooms
8 cup vegetable stock
8 slice ginger, peeled
1/2 lime, peeled & sliced thin
4 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 lb firm tofu, cut into chunks
1 cilantro, chopped
Rinse the mushrooms, put them in a small saucepan and cover with
water. Bring them to a boil on high heat and swish the mushrooms to
remove excess dirt. Discard the water. Rinse. Once again, cover the
mushrooms and bring them to a boil, covered. Let sit 1 hour. Then
drain, remove tough stems, squeeze out excess water and slice or cut
in half. Bring the stock to a boil in a large saucepan on high heat,
add the ginger and lime slices and cook for 2-3 minutes. Lower the
heat and add the lime and lemon juice, soy sauce and chilies. Simmer
for 5 minutes. Add tofu and mushrooms and simmer 5 more minutes.
Taste to check the balance of hot, sour and salt -- none should
overwhelm the other ~- and add more chilies, lime juice or soya sauce
as needed. Serve garnished with chopped cilantro. Have a side dish of
extra sliced chilies for those who like it hot. Keeps a few days
refrigerated but it is best served fresh.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you have to use flour for baked goods, substitute it with soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In most situtations, you may convert your most popular recipes that use white flour to use these.
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Many recipes that require sugar can be adapted to make use of a good quality substitute like splenda. It has a different density so you will need to experiment a little and it may not work for everything, but it gives very good results once you have it cracked.
