Would anyone happen to have a good WW recipe (or any) for Hot and Sour Soup (my favorite) with the points? Thanks soooo much!

I would love to know a good low fat cookbook for Chinese food. Period.

Any suggestions?

Here is Hot and Sour Soup with Mushrooms from the WW Stirfry to Szechuan Cookbook:

10 Dried Chinese mushroom caps (1 ounce)
1 Tbl Cornstarch
1 Tbl Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce
1 Tbl Rice Wine or Sherry
1/2 Tsp Sugar
5 Oz Sirloin Tip, cut into 1/4" strips
2 Tsp Asian Sesame Oil
2 Cups Sliced Fresh Shitake Mushrooms
2 Cups Sliced Fresh Oyster Mushrooms
16 Scallions, minced
4 Cups Chicken Broth
3 Tbl Rice Vinegar
1 Tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 Tsp Hot Red Pepper Sauce
1/4 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
2 small Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cut into 1" Chunks
1/2 lb Firm low-fat Tofu, cut into 1" Chunks

1. In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to boil. Add the dried mushrooms, cover and remove from heat. Let stand about 20 minutes, then drain, reserve the liquid, and thickly slice the mushrooms. Strain the liquid.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the constarch, soy sauce, wine, and sugar. Add the beef and toss to coat.

3. In a large nonstick saucepan, heat the oil until it begins to smoke, 30-40 seconds. Add the fresh mushrooms and the scallions; cook stiring as needed until the mushrooms have released and then reabsorbed their liquid.

4. Stir in the broth, vinegar, ginger, pepper sauce, pepper, reconstituted mushrooms, and the soaking liquid. Bring to a boil. Add the sweet potatoes, reduce heat and simmer, covered, until the potatoes are tender and the flavors are blended - about 15 minutes. Return to a boil and add the beef mixture and tofu; cook, stirring constantly, until the beef is just cooked through and the soup is slightly thickened, about 1 minute.

I have not even heard of that dessert. I am always on the look out for something low in points and sweet. That is the reason I have gained so much weight...... SUGAR!!!!!
