It’s been a cold winter here in Los Angeles.

MY OTHER RECIPES


One of the coldest, really.

And then.

It was 71 degrees F yesterday afternoon.

I’m serious.

Yet, all I wanted was this pot of soup.

This homemade, take-out copycat version of hot and sour soup.

And you know what?

I say this a lot but it’s true.

This is so stinking easy.

You won’t believe it.

But you should.

Because it’s pretty stinking effortless.

Plus.

You can have fun with this and add ground chicken or ground turkey for added protein.

Or, extra mushrooms.

Because you can never have too many mushrooms.
