hot and sour veggie soup

In bracing myself for the impending disruption promised by Hurricane Sandy, stocking up on essentials was the first item on my to-do list.

Flashlights.

Batteries.

Hot and sour soup.

I’ve always tended to find the typical Chinese restaurant iteration somewhat lacking in its dearth of vegetables. So in making it myself, I sought to remedy that shortcoming and tossed in a ton of veggies that’d been chillin’ in my fridge.

Super healthy, and really hit the spot. Bring it on, Sandy.
