Sweet and Sour Soup Recipe

07.31.12 by Jackie

Here's a quick and easy recipe I came up with to make use of the leftover plum roasted chicken I made over the weekend. I shredded the meat and added it to chicken stock I had stored in the freezer. A few additional ingredients, including enoki mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, cubed silken tofu, lily buds, kaffir lime leaves, young bamboo shoots, plum sauce and lightly beaten eggs and you have a lovely bowl of sweet and sour soup. The sweetness from the plum sauce provides a nice contrast of flavor with the freshness from the kaffir lime leaves.

Since the chicken and chicken stock were ready to go, it took me almost no time to prepare the soup. So basically, an investment of one afternoon spent preparing chicken is already paying dividends!

Hot and sour soup is a wonderful first course. It's bursting with strong flavors such as kaffir lime leaves, chiles and lime juice. To balance the dish, cubes of silken  tofuwater chestnuts and  wood ear mushrooms are added. I also thickened the broth with tapioca starch.

The girls and I are still keeping up with our daily workout routine, starting in the wee hours of the morning while the baby is sleeping. After completing our exercise, we all discuss what the menu of the day is going to be. Fun time!
