It’s another busy week in this household. Yaseen is having mid-term exams at the moment, and Sadik is in the south for the conference. It’s tough when I have to run the show alone. Usually, Sadik helps me get Yaseen ready for school while I cook them breakfast and pack lunch. Now I have to run around the house doing both things while time seems to move faster than usual. Well, on the bright side, I have to cook for 2, and Yaseen and I like the same food.
I love light dinner on lazy days. Although I have to admit that my stomach feels better when I’m stuffed with heavy food before bed, but my body surely feels great when I make conscious choices. Tofu and Mushroom with Seaweed Soup is my go-to soup when I don’t have a lot of time to cook or when I’m simply lazy and want good food. The soup only needs about 15 minutes to make, and it doesn’t have any oil in it at all. This soup is very nourishing and fresh. I often have this soup on the side when I have rice, but sometimes, I just enjoy the whole bowl of it alone.
