Home-made Meat+Prawn Balls & Tofu Seaweed Soup

Seaweed Soup1

My kids they love soup very much and this Tofu Seaweed Soup with home-made meat + prawn balls are one of their favorite.  Recently, it has been raining everyday and I like to have a bowl of hot soup at this period of time.  I can finished one small bowl of rice with just this soup alone.

This soup are very easy to prepare Unlike most chinese soup which require a longer time to simmer, the actual cooking time of this soup is under 15 minutes.  Just get all the ingredients ready and boil the whole things together before season it with some salt & pepper.  Yeah, the soup are ready to be serve !!
