Fast Hot and Sour Noodle Soup

This is one of my favourite soups – ‘Suan la tang’ means ‘sour hot soup’. Originating from the Sichuan province, this dish uses plenty of chillies and black rice vinegar for the ‘sour’. You can vary the recipe to your taste and adjust the amount of chillies to your preference. You could also omit the chicken strips if you are vegetarian. I love this soup; it is earthy from the fragrant Chinese mushrooms and very warming on a cold winter’s day. Forget instant noodles – this is a fast and healthier alternative.

CHING'S TIPS

  • To help vegetables cook in the wok, add a splash or two of water to help create some “steam” whilst stir frying.

  • Groundnut oil can be substituted with vegetable oil, sunflower oil or corn oil.

  • A large number of dishes can be adapted to suit vegetarians. Look out for where you can substitute the meat for tofu or vegetables and use vegetarian sauces.
