Great soup! I added a little chile garlic sauce and it was fantastic. Spicy and full of flavor. It wasn't quite as quick as I thought it would be - mainly due to using dried mushrooms - but was great just the same. Read More

Easy I enjoyed the simplicity of this recipe and turned out great. I didn't use any noodles...figure they are just extra unnecessary calories. I added sriracha and lime juice and garnished with cilantro which was a really nice touch. I had a very small amount of shrimp that I threw in as well and next time I will add more! the flavors worked so well with the shrimp. Read More

Excellent dish! I made this one into a side dish by adding more broth and it was stellar. I actually tried freezing the tofu and thawing it before I added to the soup- that added a bit of interest. I also added some chili sauce as others suggested and that really kicked up the flavour. Definently something to try. And it does work out perfectly fine with vegetable broth. Read More

You probably should change your title to Vegetable Hot Pot since chicken stock in called for. It's not vegetarian (what with chickens not being vegetables) and while I'd agree chicken stock tastes better than veg stock my vegetarian friends would be pissed if I served this to them. Read More

This was a very good flavorful Dish. I added more rice vinegar and sesame oil to my taste but the best thing i did was add a little lime juice. It really gave it that tangy sweet and sour taste. I should mention i did not have crushed red peppers so i added a little cayenne pepper instead. My non-vegetarian boyfriend was impressed too! Read More

Pretty easy and quite yummy. I had to use oyster mushrooms and collard greens instead of shitake and bok choy but it turned out great! It hit the spot for my head cold and low fat diet! Read More
