      Although I saved this recipe quite awhile ago I just got around to trying it. I had soup very much like this in a local restaurant and wantted to make it myself. This soup is really, really delicious, easy to make also. I really love it and would encourage all you out there in Internet land to try this!

      This was very easy to make. I used vegetable base instead of chicken, and added cubed tofu to mine. Great when you have a cold.

      I'm enjoying a bowl of this soup as I post this review. The soup is really good. The flavor is right on for hot and sour soup. And no msg to give me a headache. I made the soup exactly as written but I added a few fresh shrimp at the end. Good addition! I think the next time I make this soup, and I will be making it again, I will try leaving out the bell pepper since I'm not a big fan. I'm picking out the pieces now and started to leave it out tonight but thought it might add something to the overall flavor of the soup. I think some leftover shredded pork would be good in this soup also.
