The stomach flu has been going these days… and what to do when you’re vomiting everything you eat and drink? Take it easy. At least I do. I make congee and I eat that for two days straight, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Then I move on to jelly-like substances like tofu. Then real food :] because by the third day, I am ravenous (but at least I will lose ten pounds).
[100% organic, wild dried scallops from Hong Kong]
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- 1-inch ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
- 3 TBS soy sauce, divided
- ½ cup dried scallops, soaked in water until fully expanded (10 hours)
- Two 12.5 oz. packets of soft tofu, cut into squares
- 3 TBS canola oil
Hand shred the scallops and reserve the soaking water.
In a very hot wok, sizzle the scallops and ginger. After hearing and seeing the scallops pop, add 1 TBS soy sauce and mix well. Add the tofu with the scallions and remaining 2 TBS soy sauce plus a little bit of water and cook for 5-6 minutes.
Serve with rice.
