This Hot and Sour Soup is a Chinese restaurant classic which tastes even more delicious homemade!
As mentioned above, you can add whatever vegetables you like to this soup. Some suggestions include finely shredded Chinese cabbage, sliced green beans, or diced capsicums (bell peppers).
MAKE IT VEGETARIAN
For a vegetarian version, simply replace the chicken stock with vegetable stock, and omit the chicken. Fresh or firm tofu is a delicious alternative to meat in this recipe.
ADD AN EGG
For a more substantial soup, beat 1 egg in a small bowl. While the soup is simmering, slowly pour in the beaten egg, but make sure you stir the soup quickly so that the egg forms thin ribbons in the soup.
For a quick short-cut, replace the chicken breast fillets in this recipe with shredded rotisserie chicken (barbecued chicken). Add this to the soup in Step 9.
