Default Hot and Sour Soup

5 cups canned no-salt added chicken broth, undiluted
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
1 (4 oz) skinned and boned chicken breast half, cut into thin strips or may sub pork tenderloin
2 or 3 stalks of bok choy, sliced (optional)
1/3 cup canned bamboo shoots, cut into thin strips
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/4 c low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 tsp hot sauce
1/8 tsp pepper
1 egg white, lighly beaten (I use 1/4 cup Eggbeaters)
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup fresh snow pea pods (frozen works too)
1 Tbls cornstarch (unnecessary, skip this on phase 1)
1/4 cup water (unnecessary, skip this on phase 1)

Combine first 3 ingredients in a 2 quart saucepan; bring to a boil. Add chicken or pork tenderloin; simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes. Add bamboo shoots and bok choy if using; simmer 5 minutes. Add vinegar and next 3 ingredients; bring to a boil. Drizzle egg white into soup, sitrring constantly. (Lacy strands will form.) Stir in green onions and snow peas. Combine cornstarch and water (phase 2 only); stir into soup mixture. Bring to a boil; boil 1 minute, stirring gently. Serve immediately.

Thanks, Barb, for posting this! I love Hot & Sour Soup, and plan to make this a lot. I'm going to sub some Firm Tofu for the chicken, especially when Lent starts, and use vegetable broth instead.

I made this yesterday for lunch and it was really good. I did make a few changes. I eliminated the mushrooms and ginger (forgot to pick up the mushrooms and I don't like ginger) and I replaced the chicken breast w/ thin strips of firm tofu and eliminated the snow peas (never had either in hot and sour soup, so I left them out). I omitted the bok choy b/c they didn't have it at Kroger and I added in some thin julienned carrots and red pepper flakes. I used the entire can of bamboo shoots and a few more drops of soy sauce. Oh, and I left out the cornstarch mixture and used organic low sodium chicken broth (95 mg of sodium vs. the 600 plus mg in regular low sodium chicken broth). I know that's a lot of changes, but it was really yummy!!!

And I just wanted to add that I came back here to post that b/c I find it REALLY helpful when I'm looking at a recipe if someone says that they tried it and lets me know how it turned out.

I love to see the tweaks other people make and their reviews. Thanks Natasha, I'll definitely try this one now that it's getting cooler out.

Ooooo! This sounds SO good! I miss Hot & Sour from our local Chinese joint. My hubby will be thrilled with this one - can't wait to work it into next week's menu.
