Hi there, I am brand-new to both IP and also to the 3fatschicks forum, so hopefully this recipe is right for your phase of the diet, as I say I am just learning....it will take up your evening meal's protein as it is written with tofu, guess you could sub some shrimp or whatever you like!
From what I know of previous experiences eating hot and sour soup...it gets flavour from toasted sesame oil, which I thinkn is not allowed? Perhaps there is a 0/0/0 sesame extract flavour you could use? If not, I am sure this is better than eating a takeout version!
The only other thing I was not sure about was the stock/broth....if you make your own, though, with allowed veggies and maybe a 0/0/0 herb boilluion soup cube it's o.k.? Someone will know! It's from a veggie cookbook, I am a pescetarian (vegetarian but eat some fish and seafoods) Hope this helps!
