Hot & Sour Soup

Lean how to make easy and quick Asian hot & sour soup in just 20 minutes, with no strange ingredients and fantastic flavor. 

Hot & Sour Soup | lecremedelacrumb.comSpicy Asian hot and sour soup in the comfort of my own kitchen, fuzzy slippers, and messy bun. THIS is the life. As perviously mentioned about 927 times on this blog, I used to work at a Chinese restaurant (thank you Joy Luck for the good times and the college savings). After a busy shift or between doubles on the weekends I’d almost always grab a big bowl of hot and sour soup with a side of cream cheese wontons to help me power through.

Now that we’ve moved a couple of towns away from my old stomping grounds, it’s a huge time saver to be able to make one of my favorite Asian soups at home. It’s SO easy to bring this soup to fruition with extremely simple ingredients like water-packed tofu, canned bamboo shoots (or fresh if your market carries it!), broth and soy sauce, and Gourmet Garden Lightly Dried Herbs. These lightly dried herbs are carefully dried  through a process that preserves the oils in the herbs which allows them to last for weeks in the fridge. The flavor is straight-up amazing and they make it so easy and convenient to add fresh herb flavors to your cooking, and in this case, our hot and sour soup.
