Cindy's Thai Hot and Sour Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
I love to take recopies and either alter them to suit my tastes or to what I already have in the kitchen. For this recipe I used everything the same but excluded the lime leaves and lemon glass because I did not have any on hand. I also served this over noodles and used left over whole roasted chicken cut up into pieces. It was great! The only concern: salt. I used Knorr Tamarind Soup Base (which I get at my local Vietnamese store) which has great flavor but is salty. The broth was a bit salty at first, but once I added the tomatoes and chicken the salt was absorbed for the most part. You could taste it and throw in a half a potato for a few minutes to absorb more of the salt – just be careful not to cook the potato to mush. This is much better than what they serve in many restaurants, it does not have that thick syrupy texture, plus you know it is fresh!
