Easy hot 'n spicy tom yum seaweed soup

Hot and spicy ~ perfect on a rainy night.

Fatty hubby's been asking for this one-pot soup for some time. And it's not anything special. Just something I whip up when we feel peckish in the middle of the night. All you need for this soup are simple, basic ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.

Hot 'n spicy tom yum soup (recipe for 2)

1-2 tbsp tom yum paste (use your favorite)
Chili powder (season to your taste)
a pinch of salt
Seaweed (whatever you have ~ dried or seasoned, ready to eat)
2 eggs
1-1 1/2 cup water

Mix tom yum paste, chili powder and seaweed to boiling water. Add eggs last. Season with salt.

So easy, right? Anyways, to make it into a proper lunch or dinner dish, a one-pot meal - just add some greens, meat, mushroom or whatever you have in the fridge or freezer. And that's what I did.. added spinach and meatballs for last night's dinner. Yummy! And so easy! Another cheat's dinner (^^)

Hot, spicy and piquant! Fatty likes (^^)
