Hot and sour soup, homemade is better than the take-out, healthier and cheaper too.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 tbs chilli/garlic sauce (I use Lee Kum Klee brand)
  • 1" piece ginger, peeled & grated
  • 1.5 pint veg stock
  • 1 tbs chinese white wine
  • 2 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt and white pepper to taste
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp cornflour mix with a little water
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 100g tofu (chopped into 1/2cm cubes)
  • 1 carrot (peeled and chopped into 1/2cm cubes)

Recipe Steps:

  • Heat a little peanut oil in a saucepan and add the chilli/garlic paste and the ginger. Stir fry for 1 minute then add the stock, wine, vingegar, sugar, salt & pepper (to taste), spring onions, sesame oil and carrots. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly.
  • Add the cornflour paste and stir until slightly thickened.
  • Pour the beaten egg into a bottle with a pouring nozzle. Drizzle into the soup in thin strands until there is no egg mixture left. Alternatively, pour into soup over a fork very slowly to drizzle in to form thin strands.
  • Now add the tofu and simmer for 1 minute. Serve immediately.
