HOT AND SOUR SOUP

My ode to Chinese New Year begins with the most welcoming of dishes - the classic 'hot & sour' soup. Though you can certainly add chicken, pork or whatever you like, I've made this with only shiitakes & tofu... but you won't miss the meat, trust me.

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 8 ounces firm tofu, cubed into a medium dice
  • 4 Shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and thinly sliced
  • 1-2 tablespoons chili paste
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 egg, beaten

DIRECTIONS

  1. In medium saucepan bring chicken broth to a boil
  2. Add mushrooms, tofu & chili paste - let boil a couple minutes
  3. Stir in soy, vinegar and pepper - mix well
  4. In small bowl mix corn starch & water until smooth, and stir into the broth
  5. Simmer 5 minutes until broth thickens, then turn off heat
  6. While stirring broth in a circular direction (take your pic) pour in the egg from several inches above the pot in a very slow stream to create ribbons
  7. Serve - Gung Hay Fat Choy!
