Hot And Sour Veggie Soup

This is a Basically Chinese soup,but i made it little my style with a little more nutritious type.This is very healthy,tasty and little spicy soup.This with a Garlic bread combination can serve you has a full meal too.
Ingredients:
  • 4-6 Green onions
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1 small tomatoes
  • 1-2 garlic 
  • 1" ginger
  • 1/2 medium sized carrot finely chop/grate
  • 1/4 cup cabbage finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup capsicum finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup French beans finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup potatoes peeled and chopped
  • Mushrooms and celery or any other your choice vegetable can be added
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • oil
  • 1/2 tsp White pepper powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Ajinomoto(optional)
  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1tbsp Tomato ketchup
  • 2 tbsp Green chili sauce
  • 4-5 cups
  • vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp Vinegar
  • Chili oil/red chili flakes
Method:
Clean and chop all the veggies and keep aside.
Heat oil in a sauce pan,add onion,green onion without green part,garlic,grated ginger and stir fry for 2 minutes.
I prefer to half cook all other veggies in microwave before adding in the recipe.but you can add raw directly into it.

Add all this half cooked veggies(carrot,beans,cabbage,capsicum,potatoes) above along with chopped tomatoes and stir them continuously for 4-5 minutes.When all veggies are almost cooked,add white pepper,salt,sugar,soy sauce,green chili sauce,tomato ketchup and mix well.
Stir in vegetable stock and bring it to a boil.stir in blended cornstarch and continue to cook for a minute or until the soup thickens.
Stir in vinegar,drizzle chili oil(or if you don't have take a pan add olive oil ,when it is hot put red chili flakes and stir for 1 minutes and this can be added).

Served Hot garnished with spring onion greens with a garlic bread as a side dish.
