I do love hot and sour soup… GOOD hot and sour soup. There are some out there… and some too, that look good, but are tasteless!  Void of tasting like anything it should taste like.  

Making authentic hot and sour soup can be cumbersome which keeps folks from making it.  Finding some of the dried mushrooms called for can be an adventure… not to mention expensive.  I’ve wanted to create my own recipe for a long time, and finally decided to just get in the kitchen and do it.

I do love the convenience of using rotisserie chicken in recipes.  Like in my chicken pot pie and chicken pot pie soup!
And in the summertime, when tomatoes are plentiful and at the peak of perfection, I use rotisserie chicken in my Italian Rotisserie Chicken Salad Stuffed Tomatoes!

I looked at a lot of recipes but no one was what I like or wanted to make. So I just pulled ingredients out from my pantry I thought needed to be used… and started throwing together.  My first batch ended up just right! 

If, like me, you love some good hot and sour soup… I hope you will give this recipe a try.  Adjust to suit your taste if need be.  Just throw some together. And be sure not to skip making the crunchy crispy noodles on top. Nothing but thinly sliced wonton wrappers, thrown into some hot oil for about 30 seconds.  A whole pack will make a bunch… and they will keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container… although so crunchy good for nibbling they won’t last THAT long!  

Be sure to come over to my FB page and tell about making some… or just to hang out and have fun too!

  • 1 8 ounce carton shiitake (or portabella) mushrooms, ( sliced thin)
  • 1 8 ounce can bamboo shoots, (drained and sliced thin)
  • 1 inch piece ginger, peeled and grated
  • 4 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 5 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper paste (located in produce section in tube)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic paste (located in produce section in tube)
  • 1 tablespoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons soup broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 eggs beaten in bowl
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 package wonton wrappers, (sliced into thin strips and fried about 2 minutes)
  1. Heat the chicken in the broth until warm over medium heat. Add mushrooms, bamboo shoots, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, pastes, pepper and brown sugar. Simmer about 5 minutes for flavors to infuse.

  2. Ladle tablespoons of soup broth into small bowl. Cool, then whisk in cornstarch. Stir slurry into soup. Continue cooking the soup 7–8 minutes until thickened.

  3. Slowly whirl eggs into soup. Remove from heat and serve.

Easy chicken broth

Use rotisserie chicken bones and skin to make flavorful broth. Just throw into stock pot (or crockpot on low overnight) and add about 3 quarts water. Bring to boil, then simmer for an hour or two. If on hand, add vegetable scraps like onion skins, celery tops and herbs. Drain and use stock for this soup or freeze for others.

  1. I look after a vape shop submission site and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that additionally sells CBD product lines. A Month later, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have requested us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape store website directory. We do not offer for sale CBD items such as CBD oil. We merely offer online marketing professional services to CBD companies. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health and wellness Retailer and if you take a close peek, you will see that they supply a rather substantial variety of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment solution. It seems that PayPal is administering contradictory standards to different firms. Due to this restriction, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has limited my payment options and right now, I am greatly dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have consulted with a barrister from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they stated that what PayPal is doing is completely unlawful and discriminatory as it should be applying an uniform criterion to all companies. I am still to check with an additional legal representative from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. Meanwhile, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.

We do not sell CBD products like CBD oil. We solely offer promotion and marketing professional services to CBD companies. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Leading Health and wellness Store and if you take a close look, you will see that they sell a relatively considerable series of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment solution. It emerges that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to different firms. Due to this restriction, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restrained my payment options and presently, I am seriously dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have checked with a barrister from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is doing is absolutely against the law and inequitable as it ought to be applying an uniform criterion to all firms. I am yet to seek advice from yet another legal representative from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
