Hot and Sour Soup<

This week has gone by very quickly.
It flew by even quicker when I had one child down with a cough and cold. It is always this time of the year :(
...and the worrying part is---- she is having her EXAMS, starting this week, starting TODAY!!!! English is her first paper.
Perhaps stress is another contributing factor  :(  ... my poor girl

Hot and Sour Soup

Hot and sour soup is one of our favorite soups, the other is Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup.

Perhaps I should cook for her this soup again to combat the winter chill :)
What is your comfort food in winter or when you are in need of some TLC?
I am in need of some TLC... I am down with a sniffle too :(

Hot and Sour Soup


  1. I want nothing but this delicious soup for my lunch! Well done, Lisa.

    1. Thank you Angie, my winter comfort food :D

  2. Delicious looking and sounding! I love sour-tasting dishes...



  3. I guess this soup is most suitable for winter....brings comfort and warming to the stomach.

  4. I usually do a quick-fix hot and sour with mushrooms, tofu, carrots and sometimes finely shredded cabbage. Then add that splash of vinegar...ooh..yum yum yum. Your hot and sour soup looks very appetizing, and from some "perspective", looks like the expensive "sharks fin" soup. Who needs inhumane, un-environmental friendly sharks fin soup when we all can have your hot and sour soup.

    1. Thank you Tigerfish :D
      your quick version sounds yumm.
      Agree with you on shark fins, cruel and inhumane just to have that bit of flesh >:(

  5. This looks really like something special! You really know your way around all these spices...The soup looks fantastic!
