Hot and Sour Vegetable Soup

This is another recipe I found on the WW recipe review board. I have been making it for years. It is so fast to prepare, in the time it takes to bring the broth to a boil you are done. It is hot (spicy) and sour (tart). But you can adjust it to your taste. If you want more heat add more garlic chili sauce. If you are not one for the pucker of lemon or vinegar cut back on those ingredients. This is so delicious and very guilt free. It is a wonderful way to stay warm and get in a big serving of vegetables.

  4. I've become a follower of fish sauce. While is not so great (to put it mildly), it sure does lend great flavor to a dish. I've never used it in soup.
    Thank you for linking this week!

    1. I know I love the stuff, but I still make a face when I catch a whiff from the bottle. I agree it's flavor is so worth any unpleasant aroma. I am very pro fish sauce. Have a great evening!
