Seaweed, Tofu, Egg Flower Soup with Tomatoes

I have been craving for seaweed soup and egg flower soup, so I combined the two together with cubed silken tofu, heirloom tomatoes and ground pork meat balls. The meat balls were flavored with dong cai, ground white pepper, ground black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. A dash of sesame seed oil is added to the egg mixture before stirring it into the soup with a pair of bamboo chopsticks. The soup is further seasoned with a teaspoon of bonito extract, a teaspoon of ginger powder, a few shakes of dried parsley and a dash of Shaoxing Chinese rice wine. Voila, we have soup! A very Ying and Yang looking soup! P/S: Threw in some red dates and goji berries at the last minute.
