Hot and Sour Vegetable Soup Recipe

Difficulty:BeginnerPrep time: 20 minutesCook time: 10 minutesTotal time: 30 minutesServings:4 servings



  1. Set a pot on medium high heat and add in the finely chopped ginger and garlic
  2. Stir fry for 15 to 20 seconds, you don’t need to brown them
  3. Now add in the mushrooms. The main taste of the broth comes in from the mushroom pieces.
  4. Stir fry the mushroom pieces till they get dark brown in color. This should take ~2-3 minutes
  5. Now add in the carrots and the french green beans.Stir fry these for ~ a minute
  6. Now add in cabbage and stir fry the cabbage for not more than 15 seconds
  7. Now add in ~4 cups of water ( ~ 1L)
  8. Add in the chopped green chillies.
  9. Let the broth come up to a boil
  10. Add ~4 tablespoons of water to the cornstarch. Mix thoroughly so it forms a lump free slurry.
  11. Once the soup starts to boil, it’s time to add the sauces
  12. I am using 2 tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce. If you’re using the high sodium one, 1/2 tablespoon should be enough
  13. Next, add in 2 tablespoons of white vinegar
  14. I’m adding in a tablespoon of the red chili sauce, you can add as much as you like!
  15. Add in 1/2 teaspoon of powdered black pepper.
  16. Add salt to taste
  17. Add in the corn starch slurry a little bit at a time. As the soup keeps boiling, the broth will get thicker. The consistency that we are going for, is just slightly thick
  18. Turn off the heat and garnish with coriander leaves and the chives or spring onion greens


  • If you don’t like mushrooms, you can add in some veggie or chicken stock powder to the soup
