Exactly What I'd Hoped For

I started this in the slow cooker, but ended up moving it all to the Dutch oven because my slow cooker was just too small. (It's a 5.5 qt slow cooker, the Dutch oven is 7 qt.)
You'll definitely need at least the 6 qt. slow cooker the recipe calls for. I was pretty happy my Dutch oven was 7 qt. for this one.

We had never tried tofu in our house, so this was a first to us. It was fantastic, and will get made a lot. After adding everything to the Dutch oven, I simmered it for about an hour, (kept checking it for flavor) then added the sesame oil mixture, and finally the noodles. We couldn't ask for anymore from this recipe. The flavors were incredible, and we loved the spice from the Sriracha. Everything was a perfect blend. It's so filling too! Very grateful to have this one in my arsenal. Thanks Eating Well!

Wow, huge disappointment. Not hot, not sour, just bland. Was all set to have a spicy, good to ward off colds at the beginning of cold weather soup, & this just put me to sleep. Headed to the garbage disposal!

Broth not good

I really think the amount of cabbage ruined the broth for me. The "hot and sour" part is very similar to my favorite recipe for hot and sour soup. I can only guess the cabbage made the difference for me in a bad way, in this soup.

Hot and sour-- yep

Unique and hearty

This soup was easy to make and really filling! I think I added too much Soy Sauce, and I luckily doubled the amount of chili-ginger paste it asked for. I thought it was pretty great!

shittake mushrooms are meaty and great, spicy (doubled chili-ginger paste), and filling
