Paleo Hot & Sour Soup

With the weather getting colder and colder outside, what better way to warm up than with a spicy bowl of warm soup!  My favorite soup of all time is Hot & Sour soup, but since eating Paleo, I cannot eat it with all the soy.  So, I decide to create my own delicious version that is full of flavour, quick and easy to make, and is as authentic as the real thing. It’s a sure thing to cure any soup craving! Mmm…IMG_1347

Ingredients:

  • 10 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 8 ounces shitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 ounces oyster mushrooms
  • 1 cup dried fungus
  • 1/4 cup rice vineger
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp chili garlic sauce
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Add one cup boiling water over dried fungus and let sit for 1 hour
  • Set aside 1/4 cup of chicken or vegetable stock for later
  • Pour chicken of vegetable stock to a pot and bring to a boil
  • Add in mushroom and simmer for 5 mins
  • Pour in vinegar, coconut aminos, chili garlic sauce into the pot and stir to combine
  • Strain water from the dried fungus and add into soup
  • Whisk together 1/4 cup arrowroot powder and 1/4 stock (that you had set aside).
  • While soup is simmering, stir in the arrowroot mixture and stir for 1 min until the soup has thickened
  • Stir soup in a circular motion and drizzle eggs in a thin steams to create egg ribbons
  • Season with salt and pepper (I personally like to go a little heavier on the salt since this recipe doesn’t have soy sauce for the saltiness)
  • Stir in sesame oil and green onions
  • Serve immediately and garnish with some green onions and a small drizzle of  sesame oil
  • Enjoy!
