I came across this recipe when I was trying to find something to make tofu taste good. I've never been a big fan of the stuff and I'm not sure this recipe converted me, but we very much enjoyed the spicy broth and broccoli. I used homemade duck broth for the soup base. I felt the soup needed just a bit more depth of flavour though, even with the spicyness, so I added a squeeze of lime juice and a tiny bit of fish sauce.
Not for the timid, but then I used 3 hot chilies and it was wonderful. Gai Lan is not readily available so I used broccoli as suggested with excellent results Very easy soup to pull togerther great step by step instructions and the end result is YUM Thanks Sue another keeper
