Enoki & Black Fungus Egg Drop Soup

In this enoki & black fungus egg drop soup (金针菇木耳蛋花汤), the enoki provides healthy fiber while the black fungus gave a crunchy bite to every spoonful of soup. The silky egg ‘flowers’ provided extra nutrition and aesthetics to the soup. I had the entire pot of soup all to myself as a low-carb lunch (yes, I am still doing the one low-carb meal a day thing).

Mixed Mushroom Pack
I bought a value-for-money (only S$2.18!) mixed mushroom pack (pic above) at the supermarket, and it contains a nice bundle of enoki mushroom inside which I used to make this soup. Coupled with some leftover soaked black fungus from making stir-fry chicken & black fungus, the duo enoki + fungus gives a nice contrast in colour and texture.  The soup turned out really nice. And best of all, it takes only less than 10 minutes of stove action.

Cut Enoki Mushrooms
After cleaning the enoki mushrooms, cut them to short sections. The cut enoki is much easier to chew & digest. They also look better proportionally in the egg drop soup.

Cut Black Fungus
Soak the dried black fungus in a large bowl of water until reconstituted. Remove the knot on the underside of each fungus, then cut them to smaller bite-sized pieces as shown above.
