    Tofu may be replaced for the chicken if desired, make this as spicy as you like by adjusting the chili flakes, 1/4 teaspoon for mild heat, 1/2 teaspoon for medium heat, 1 teaspoon for very spicy :)

      This doesn't have the complex flavors in the restaurant version I love, but it is a very acceptable version doable by any home cook and is made with easy to find ingredients. It is also very quick & easy which is a big plus. I will definitely keep this recipe in my file & use it again as it is very good. I used the tofu option & 3T of cornstarch. My pot of soup ended up nicely thickened. I also minced the ginger and found I liked the tiny bits I had in spoonfuls of the soup. I served with Clean out the Fridge Egg Fu Yum!. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made in memory of John during the 2008 cookathon.

      This was really delicious and surprisingly fast and easy (from start to finish in the kitchen it took about 40 minutes). Even though I added extra cornstarch, it didn't get thick at all, but that was ok because it had the consistency of egg drop soup which I thought was better than being thick. At the end, I had to add a bit of water (about half a cup) because the flavor was a little too sharp for me. I also let it simmer for at least 15 minutes after everything was added. It was absolutely delicious.
