Photo 110/365 More home cooking

Mom sent me some "gow gai" via J. Don't ask me what the translation is. All I know is Mom's been making this vegetable into a soup for as long as I can remember. Of course, my version is much simpler. Canned stock instead of homemade, tofu, and the gow gai. Three ingredients and a lot of memories. (Sorry I didn't make the soup when you were here J.)

She also sent some cuttings so I could have my own. I did have a couple of plants but ended up tearing them out because they kept getting mildew. Hopefully, I'll have better luck with this batch.

Mmmmmm, that looks tasty! I wonder how that vegetable would taste in miso soup!

It would probably taste great! In fact, I was considering using miso, but I never know how much to use so I stuck with the known product of chicken broth
