For a hearty fusion meal full of veggies and tofu try my Vegan Hot and Sour Soup with Ramen! The perfect Asian-inspired comfort food that’s ready in under 30 minutes!
Hot and sour soup, basically, the Asian version of chicken noodle soup. Soul-hugging and comforting. This hot and sour soup is Indo- Chinese version. Yes there’s a whole sub cuisine under Indian cuisine with Chinese and inspired dishes. To this simple soup, I add in some ramen noodles to cook with the soup to make for a hearty meal.
You will love how quick and easy this Asian soup comes together! It is ready in under 30 minutes. Perfect for last-minute dinners!
The heat in this vegan hot and sour soup comes from fresh hot green chili, fresh ginger, and a dash of white pepper. While not overly spicy, it is definitely on the hotter side but the spice level is easily adjustable. The signature sourness of the broth comes from adding some rice vinegar. Don’t worry, the vinegar does not come through too much and is balanced out perfectly by the remaining broth ingredients.
Some of the vinegar will evaporate during cooking so don’t worry if the vinegar dominates right in the beginning. It will taste more and more mellow as it cooks. However, for a bolder taste, add some more vinegar and soy sauce right at the end.
