Take a break from chicken noodle soup and make this vegetarian hot and sour soup instead. This soup is loaded with flavor and will definitely wake up your palette. The steamy vegetable broth is studded with bok choy, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, and Chinese pea pods. Although you may think hot and sour soup has an intense cooking process, the majority is made from traditional Chinese pantry items (like soy sauce, hoisin, and sesame oil). A bowl of hot and sour soup will get you out of your wintertime food funk.
