Mushroom Hot and Sour Soup – healthy egg drop soup to warm us up and help fight the cold.
There is nothing better than a bowl of hot healthy soup to warm us up while there are huge amounts of snow and very low temperatures outside.
Mushroom Hot and Sour Soup is adapted from the recipe by Feed Me Phoebe. I didn’t have all ingredients needed so I changed it a little bit. I had no fresh ginger so I used powdered ginger instead.
Tamari was not in my pantry and I substituted it with Ketchup Manis (Thais sweet soy sauce) and a little bit of oyster sauce (didn’t include this in a recipe because I didn’t measure it exactly).
The soup was sour as it should be, but I wanted to balance the acidity with a teaspoon of sugar.
I certainly recommend this soup to everyone who needs to fight the cold.
