I found this to taste very much like the soup my favorite Chinese buffet serves.

This is a great recipe for Sweet and Sour soup which I adore! If you wanted a vegetarian version you could substitute a small block of soft tofu, cut in tiny cubes. If you wanted it to be a bit spicy, add Chinese chili sauce to taste. This is a fine recipe that can have many riffs played on it. Thank you!

It's me again. I forget to add, of course that if a vegetarian version IS wanted, substitute vegetable stock (from cubes or a box) and also a well beaten egg can be added at the end of cooking for more protein. It will cook quickly into threads. Thanks for allowing me to add this!
