A popular appetizer in Chinese restaurants, Hot and Sour Soup also makes a great meal in itself with the addition of peas, corn, carrots, cabbage and meaty shiitake mushrooms.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups vegetable or chicken stock
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp gingerroot, minced
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbs tamari
  • 4 shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lb firm tofu, sliced into 1/4x1-inch (0.5x2.5cm) strips
  • 1 cup Napa cabbage, shredded
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup frozen peas
  • 1/3 cup frozen corn
  • 2 Tbs rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbs mirin (Chinese cooking wine)
  • 1 Tbs cornstarch dissolved in 3 Tbsp (45mL) cold water
  • 1 egg, well-beaten (optional)
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

Directions

  • Bring stock to a boil over medium-high heat in a 21/2- to 3-quart (1.9 to 2.9L) saucepan. Add garlic, ginger, black pepper, and tamari. Reduce heat and simmer 1 minute.
  • Add mushrooms, tofu, cabbage, carrots, peas and corn. Stir and let simmer 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in vinegar, mirin and cornstarch mixture. Continue cooking until soup is thickened, about 1 minute.
