Recipe Ingredients for Chinese Hot and Sour Soup

16 oz mushrooms
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoon white vinegar or rice vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoon cornstarch
8 cups chicken broth
2 package lite firm tofu, diced into small cubes
4 eggs, beaten
1 tsp chili flakes
1 teaspoon sesame oil
6 scallions, diced

Recipe Directions for Chinese Hot and Sour Soup

  1. Pour boiling water over the mushrooms until the mushrooms are covered and allow them to soak for 20 minutes, turning the mushrooms over occasionally. It may not seem like a lot but they will grow quite a bit. After soaking remove any woody ends with a knife. Cut mushrooms into strips. Reserve 1/4 cup of the liquid and mix with the cornstarch. (If using fresh enoki mushrooms set aside as they do not need to soak).

  2. 2 Pour boiling water over the lily buds until covered and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Cut the buds crosswise then tear them up into a few bunches.

  3. 3 Mix the vinegars and soy sauce together and set aside. Open the can of bamboo shoots, drain well, and cut the shoots lengthwise into strips.

  4. 4 Place the chicken broth into a bot and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the tofu, mushrooms, lily buds, bamboo shoots, vinegar mixture, and cornstarch mixture. Mix and bring back to a boil. Once it comes to a boil remove from heat. While stirring the soup slowly pour the egg into the broth in a small steam while stirring the soup allowing the egg to instantly cook and feather into the soup.

  5. 5 Add the scallions, white pepper, sesame oil, and chili oil if using. Taste and adjust white pepper, vinegar, and salt to taste. Add cilantro to garnish and for added flavor. Serve immediately.

  6. Serves 4.
