Very nice recipe, but not anything like hot and sour soup - more similar to miso soup if anything. But highly recommended all the same.

Such a delicious soup! I may never go out to Chinese food again! I did make a few modifications based on my personal preferences and what was available. I added some sesame oil while cooking because I've read that is the secret ingredient to asian foods in general. I garnished with sesame seeds. I left out the rice vinegar because I didn't have any (and because I like my soup a little less sour) and subbed lemon juice for citric acid. I threw in some chopped celery leaves because I like the flavor. I used the chili garlic paste (rooster on front, green lid), ~1 tbsp, and it was VERY HOT... will probably decrease that next time. But oh my, was it GOOD!!!
