Taiwanese Breakfast

The gloomy weather last week had me craving the Taiwanese breakfast of salted soymilk.  Plain unsweetened soymilk is heated up, and flavored with soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, and a dash of vinegar for the ultimate comfort breakfast.  Warm fried crullers, fresh chopped cilantro, and preserved radish and dried shrimp round out the flavors.

Ingredients: 2 cups unsweetened soymilk, 1/3 cup of chopped preserved radish and dried shrimp (rinsed), 1 tbsp chopped cilantro, 1/2 of a cruller – cut into 1″ thick slices.

1.  Heat some oil in a pan and saute the radish (you can also use preserved mustard green) and dried shrimp until fragrant and fully cooked.

2.  Heat up the soymilk until nearly boiling.

3.  Stir in soy sauce. sesame oil, and vinegar (optional as it will curdle the soymilk) and add in the rest of the ingredients.
