For when you need comfort food fast – this is hearty, flavour-packed chicken soup in just 10 minutes. It’s a great way to use up leftover cooked chicken and tofu – as well as that pesky half a carrot that always seems to be in the crisper!

Ingredients

½ carrot*

6 cups chicken stock

1 cup (about 150g/5oz) cooked shredded chicken (left-over BBQ/rotisserie chicken is perfect)

200g (7oz) mixed mushrooms (e.g. shitake and enoki)

100g (3.5oz) firm tofu, sliced

100g (3.5oz) bamboo shoot strips

1 tsp ground black pepper

2 tsp dark soy sauce

¼ cup light soy sauce

¼ cup white vinegar

3 tbsp cornflour (cornstarch), mixed with 3 tbsp water

sea salt

finely chopped spring onion (scallions), to serve

Steps
Step 1

Use a julienne peeler to shave thin strips of carrot into a saucepan.

Step 2

To the carrot, add the chicken, mushrooms, tofu, bamboo shoots and chicken stock. Place the saucepan over high heat and bring to a gentle simmer. Add pepper, soy sauces and vinegar.  Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 2-3 minutes or until mushrooms are just softened.

Step 3

Add cornstarch mixture to the soup and stir.  Simmer for another 3 minutes to thicken. Taste the soup and adjust seasoning to your taste. Add salt, vinegar and pepper to your liking. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with spring onion.

Wow so easy and yummy

This is amazing. I always assumed I was not skilled enough to make this (when i looked online and found 45 ingredient recipes) when I saw this I was so happy to see I had all the ingredients and I went right to work. I tweaked it some. Added chili paste. Added a pinch of sugar and, some scrambled egg at the end. But holy cow this is amazing. It would have been great just as written!! I’ll be making this a lot now. Thx so much.

A new hot & sour fan

My husband has always loved hot & sour soup, but I’ve never been a big fan. I decided to make it for him after he’d had a stressful day, and figured I’d have just a bit.

I don’t like pork or mushrooms, so this chicken version looked good and I left out the mushrooms. I also used chili bamboo shoots and added some white pepper. Anyway, the result was surprisingly good! I’m a hot & sour fan now – at least this version!
