This soup was inspired by a colleague at work who was telling me about her delicious Hot and Sour soup that she makes at home. It’s ages since I made a Chinese style soup so I was keen to create one of my own. It was so good I had two small bowlfuls in one of my cute little Chinese dishes!
Part of being a blogger is sometimes to provide over 500 words per blog post. To be honest I am more interested in trying and sharing my recipes, so I apologise if I don’t write enough – I am just keen to share! I love simplicity, I tell a story, I tell the short version. I listen to a long story, I think….come on tell me what happened!
So my recipes are my hobby, I am a creative person and I love sharing, that’s why if you stumble across one of my many recipes I don’t keep you waiting long before the ingredients come to view! I am keen for you to see any try my recipes ASAP!
