46/365 - Stay Away Cold!

I've had a sore throat, and been stuffed up, sneezing and coughing for the past 4 days. With 3 fresh inches of snow on the ground, it was time to enjoy some Hot and Sour Soup for lunch.

10.02.15 - Hot and Sour Soup
The basic recipe -
2 C chicken broth
1 C water
Shitake and oyster mushrooms (I used dried ones)
Tofu cubes
1/4 lb of Pork, cut into strips
1 clove of garlic, chopped
1" ginger, grated
2 green onions, chopped
2-3 T soy sauce
2-3 T Rice vinegar
1 T Tabasco sauce

Stir fry pork, garlic, ginger and green onions in a medium sauce pan until the pork is cooked. Add liquids and mushrooms, simmer for 15 minutes (or longer). Add tofu last. Adjust seasonings as needed. You could add some wontons or a little noodle if you like. Traditional Hot and Sour soup uses cornstarch and egg, but I didn't want either, so I omitted them.

We're all at home today, with the President's Day Holiday. Pretty low key. Thinking about Spring as the snow continues to fall outside my window.
