Hot and sour soup is served as a first course at Asian meals. Add chicken and noodles to the favorite vinegary broth to make it a main-dish soup.




  • Heat broth in large saucepan to simmering.

  • Mix vinegar, oil and hot-pepper sauce in small bowl. Stir in cornstarch until smooth and well blended.

  • Stir miso paste into hot broth to dissolve. Add chicken, mushrooms, carrots and salt; return to simmering. Re-whisk cornstarch mixture; stir into soup along with scallions. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 1 minute.

  • Divide noodles among serving bowls; ladle in soup.


*Miso paste:Made from fermented soybeans and with a peanut-butter-like texture, the paste is used in Japanese cooking to season and thicken soups. Look for it in Japanese markets or well-stocked supermarkets.
