Introduction

Restaurant-style hot and sour soup, minus the sugar, corn starch and MSG. You can add whatever other vegetables you like (hot and sour soup usually has mushrooms but I don't like them). I usually add bean sprouts and brown rice and serve it as a complete meal. Restaurant-style hot and sour soup, minus the sugar, corn starch and MSG.

    I tweaked this, adding more tofu, mushrooms, used egg beaters and thai chili sauce as I had no white pepper, but it came out wonderful!! I am glad I doubled the recipe, because this will be polished off in my household in no time at all!! - 4/4/09

    Great Recipe.. I have a tip. Use ARROWROOT as a thickener for this dish. Arrowroot is a non-glycemic and natural alternative to corn starch. You'll get much better consistancy in the finished product. - 3/21/08
