Hot and Sour Soup {GIVEAWAY} #meatlessmonday



My winter eating has consisted of a lot of soups.
This one is one of my favorites.
Mainly because the ingredients are so different.

Tofu is the main protein source in this soup.
I am not going to lie,
I am slightly weirded out  by tofu.
I think it's the texture.
But,  in this recipe it is disguised by all the crunchy ingredients,
so there is no reason not to make it!

If you participate in #meatlessmonday, 
this works great for that.
Or if you do not eat meat on Friday's for lent,
also another great choice :) 


Nasoya sent me some tofu to try out,
and I liked it!
Not only is it good for you,
but it is all natural but it is also organic!
I've never heard of them before I tried their food,
but now I am a fan.

  1. This sounds like a great recipe. I do try to eat vegan, so I would use vegetable broth...Thanks for the recipe. I just saw this through Facebook. I learned to love tofu, since I went veggie 20 years ago and I have to say it is a great protein source and tastes like whatever you put it with. Nasoya is the best. (from one WI person to another)
