Good To Know
The less time between the when your food is harvested and when it's eaten, the more nutrients it packs. Most of the winter-grown produce at the Pleasantville Farmers Market is harvested just a day or two before. So when you eat locally-grown food, you not only put more money back into local economy; you not only put less pollution into the air from shipping; you also get the most nutrition for you and your family. That's good eating.

Prepare ingredients first by cleaning and cutting chiken. Cut vegetables and tofu. Put water in a pot, bring to a boil. Coat chicken with corn starch, and place chicken in pot. When chicken is cooked (floats), put in shiitake, onion, carrot, tofu, crushed red pepper in pot and adjust heat to low simmer. Add Ponzu, egg (beaten briefly) and corn starch (blended with the 2 Tbsp water) and the sesame oil to pot. Add scallions (and optional green such as some spinach leaves) when you ready to serve. Enjoy!
