7 Soups in 7 Days- Day 4, Hot and Sour
Well, we made it past the halfway point! I can't tell if everyone in my family is genuinely excited about the soup each night or if my hubby has discovered my blog posts LOL! :) Either way, I think the soup last night went over well. I've never made Hot and Sour Soup before so it was a fun learning experience. I *loved* pouring the egg in the swirling water and watch it cook before my eyes. I could definitely do that again!
Of course I added an "extra" with the meal. We had a bag of the Ling Ling wontons in the freezer from Costco that were super easy and went with the soup well. This was probably the most expensive soup so far- I'll tally everything up at the end for us to see. Shitake mushrooms aren't the cheapest things in the world.
HERE is the recipe I used, but modified quite a bit. I kept the stock the same, used chicken instead of pork among a few other things. Let me know if you try this or have another recipe you love!
