Recipe by Cilantro in Canada

This is our family's favourite hot and sour soup. In Canada, we have a grocery chain called Loblaws that publishes a booklet called the Insiders Report. This is from an issue many years ago. Feel free to adjust ingredients to personal taste. This makes a big potful of soup. Number of servings and prep. time are estimated.
