I thought this was alright, perfectly fine for a healthy lunch maybe with some toast. I imagine the flavors will be fuller once frozen and reheated which I look forward to.

This was just what I needed. I omitted the red bell pepper and added a couple kinds of dried mushrooms. After reading some of the other reviews I also added less tofu. Very nice comforting soup.

As a tofu newbie I really enjoyed this. I think for other newbies the tofu should be cut up a little smaller or possibly grated. Delicious flavor!

I LOVED this soup. I'm made it as written, although I did add a handfull of dried shitake mushrooms, because I had them on hand. Next time, and, oh yes, there WILL be a next time, I will cut down on the tofu (there's a LOT of tofu). I'll probably also add some thinly sliced bamboo shoots. Thanks for posting. This is definitely a keeper!

This was great and easy. I private chef and my client said "I especially enjoyed the Hot and Sour for its texture and flavour.This upcoming week I'd love a repeat on the Hot and Sour."

Nice soup! Very healthful too (might want to cut back a bit on the vegetable oil though, like I did). Just perfect for a vegetarian who hates mushrooms too! I used a red pepper, added snow peas and about a cup and a half of rice to make a one-dish meal. My only recommendation would be to double the vinegar, or add to taste along with salt and pepper. BF and I like our hot and sour soups very sour! (I also served with additional vinegar and soy sauce.) Thanks very much Hadice!

Super soup recipe! I had to substitute the snow peas with baby corn because my SO does not like snow peas. I also added a ts of miso at the end. This recipe is a keeper.

Very good soup!!! I particularly liked the texture of the water chestnuts. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting Hadice.
