I love this soup. I've made it several times to use up leftover turkey or chicken. I've substituted vegetables I have on hand like celery and frozen peas and it's just as good. I also leave out the sugar, because I like the tanginess of the vinegar. Thanks for posting this.
Fast, easy, yummy soup. added some sesame and chili oil to taste.
One of my all time favorites is hot and sour soup from China Joe's. This is even better! And it doesn't take much more time than ordering out! Thank you, Dorothy.
