    Hot & Sour Soup w/ Miso paste

    A different style of Hot and Sour Soup.. but very tasty!!--------Miso Paste is made from soybeans (some have barley added) which is allowed to ferment. It serves as a seasoning and thickener in this soup.

    List of Ingredients

    2 qts. chicken broth
    1/4-1/3 c. rice-wine vinegar
    1 tbls. dark Asian sesame oil
    2-3 tsp. liquid hot pepper sauce
    1/4 c. cornstarch
    2 tbls. miso paste
    1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 /1/2 inch strips.
    8 white mushrooms, sliced (I use my egg slicer)
    1 c. coarsely shredded carrots (I prefer bean sprouts)
    1/2 tsp. salt
    4 scallions, thinly sliced
    1 pkg (5 oz.) curly dried noodles (they look like "ramen noodles), cooked and drained


    1-Heat broth in a large saucepan to simmering

    2-Mix vinegar, oil and pepper sauce in a small bowl. Stir in cornstarch until smoothe and well blended.

    3-Stir miso paste into hot brogh to dissolve. Add chicken, mushrooms, carrots and salt; return to simmering. Re-whish the cornstarch mix; stir into soup along with the scallions.
    Simmer until slightly thickened (about 1 minute).

    4-Divide Noodles among serving bowls; ladle in soup.
