Crock Pot Hot & Sour Soup (vegan)

Submitted by: SANOURRA

Introduction

Whip up this soup overnight for a great, low-cal lunch the next day! You can adjust the spice level to suit your tastes. Don't have any vegetable broth on hand? You can substitute vegetable boullion cubes and the same amount of water for which the recipe calls. Whip up this soup overnight for a great, low-cal lunch the next day!

Directions

Soak dried mushrooms in 3.5 cups hot water for 20 minutes to soften them.

Note: If using boullion cubes instead of broth, heat 4 cups of water in your crock pot on high. Add 7 boullion cubes.

Mince the ginger and garlic and throw in the crock pot (stir boullion cubes to dissolve them if that's what you used). If you're using liquid vegetable broth, add it to the pot now.

Cube the tofu and cut bamboo shoots into strips (if you didn't buy them that way). Add these to the crock pot, along with the vinegar, soy sauce, and chili sauce.

Remove mushrooms from water. If using boullion cube method, add this water to crock pot. If not, save or discard water as you wish.

Slice the mushrooms into long, thin strips and add them to the pot. Add salt and pepper to taste. Turn crock pot to low and simmer for 6-8 hours.

Yields 10 1-cup servings.

    Added bean sprouts and lessoned the soya sauce. Salty tasting but really awsome. - 4/26/09

  • Made this for a large number of guests. For some reason, it smelled sort of weird while I was making it (although it was mingling with a number of other food smells - it was a BIG party), so I was apprehensive about the taste. But it was AWESOME! Not a vegan, but will DEFINITELY make this again!! - 1/2/10
