Ingredients

  • (1oz) dried Asian mushrooms (such as black trumpet or shiitake)
  • 2 quarts 33% less sodium fat-free chicken broth
  • 4 slices fresh ginger, slightly crushed
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1 (15.5oz) can S&W® Garbanzos (drained, rinsed)
  • 1 (15.25oz) can S&W® Kidney Beans (drained, rinsed)
  • 1 (15.25oz) can baby lima beans (drained)
  • 2 cups thinly sliced Chinese (napa) cabbage
  • 1 large tomato, seeded, chopped
  • 1 (8 to 12oz) package tofu, drained, cut in 3/4-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions

Place mushrooms in medium bowl; add warm water to just cover mushrooms. Let stand 30 minutes; drain. Slice mushrooms.

In Dutch oven or 4-quart saucepan, combine drained mushrooms, broth and ginger. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat. Cover; simmer 15 minutes. Stir in carrot and all beans; cook 10 minutes. Stir in cabbage, tomato and tofu; cook 5 minutes or until cabbage is tender. Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice and sesame oil. Remove ginger. Top each serving with green onions.

Tips: Use the tofu you prefer – it is available as soft, medium or firm. Any will work in this recipe.

Look for dark (toasted) sesame oil near the Asian food section in the grocery store. It has a very pronounced flavor – a little goes a long way. Refrigerate it once the bottle is opened.
