Hot and Sour Chinese Tofu Soup

Hot and Sour Chinese Tofu Soup

I have never been a big fan of tofu, until I made this hot and sour Chinese tofu soup, among other tofu recipes. I was asked to develop a large number of Chinese recipes for a client and I had to do some research in order to provide authentic and appealing Chinese dishes that would taste as good as they look.  I tried different brands and I came to the conclusion that extra firm tofu is the way to go, especially when it comes to soups and stews. I experimented a lot and I developed more than 100 recipes.

This one is my favourite.
