Vegetarian Hot and Sour Soup
The hot and sour vegetarian soup is a favorite. Its a quick soup thrown together from bottled sauces and canned broth. It depends alot upon the quality of the broth. I've include another soup I haven't tried yet from the Beyond Bok Choy book of Chinese vegetables. Quantities are approximate; to taste and to what is on hand. The technique and the use of potato starch are ideas from CHINESE COOKING by Yan Kit Martin. Have ingredients prepared and assembled. The boil is also gentle and steady; never allow the broth to boil. Can substitute celery and napa cabbage leaves for the bok choy.
