Simple Mushroom and Veggie Hotpot

Simple vegetable and mushroom hotpot that I had during a recent tour. I would never have thought of using cucumber in hotpot and in here, trying to recreate it. Add some light soy sauce or granulated mushroom bouillon, if desired. With steaming hot rice, you can enjoy a fuss free and healthy meal.

Preparation: 10 mins, Cooking time: 15 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 50g cucumber, sliced
° 50g endives, cut into chunks
° 50g carrot, peeled and sliced
° 50g king oyster mushroom, sliced
° 50g enoki mushroom, based trimmed
° 50g fresh shiitake mushroom, sliced
° 100g silken tofu, cubed
° 750ml water
° 1 slice ginger
° salt and pepper, to taste
° dash sesame oil (optional)

1. Place the carrot, king oyster mushrooms, ginger and water in a pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
2. Add in the enoki mushroom, shiitake mushroom, cucumber, endives, tofu and bring to a boil. Season to taste with salt, pepper and sesame oil.
3. Serve immediately.
