I truly believe soups can heal. And this keto vegan hot and sour soup is definitely one of the best healing soups in my book!

3-4 Shiitake mushrooms
1-2 small carrot
Black fungus (a small handful, dried)
White pepper (ground)
3-4 tbsp black or rice vinegar
1-2 tbsp Soy sauce
Toasted sesame oil
4-5 cups of hot water
1 tsp konjac powder
For 1-2 cups of liquid:
1/8 tsp Xanthan Gum (sprinkle directly)
1/4 tsp Konjac powder (mix in cold water before use)
1/4 tsp Psyllium husk powder (mix in cold water before use)
1. Soak the dried black fungus in warm water for about 10-15mins.
2. Cut the vegetable and tofu in thin strips (bar the spring onions, chop them in fine pieces).
3. Saute the vegetables, black fungus and tofu in a frying pan with olive oil and toasted sesame oil for a few minutes. Pour in 4-5 cups of hot water, bring it to a boil and allow to simmer.
4. Season with white pepper, soy sauce and salt (adjust to your taste). Mix 1 tsp of konjac powder in some cold water and mix well.
5. Reduce the heat and add the konjac powder mixture in the soup and stir well. Pour in the vinegar and allow to simmer. (if you’re using silken tofu, add it now)
6. Before finishing, add in half the amount of chopped spring onions, turn off the heat, and drizzle some toasted sesame oil.
Serve with a sprinkle of chopped spring onions (or coriander) and a drizzle of toasted sesame oil. Enjoy!
I would also add bamboo shoots.
I am so excited, we have a lot of wood ear mushrooms here and i love them. We have a wild variety of enoki mushrooms too. I want to make this soup so badly
Another soup to taste at home 😄 i love your soups. Grateful 🙏
I’m so excited to try this next week!
Thanks! One of my favorites. Excellent presentation!😁
I bought wood ear mushroom and the package shows 8g of sugar, is this normal?
Made soup this morning following your recipe and method. Delicious! Thank you.
That looks SO GOOD! I love soup ANY time of year!
I was wish the bowl was a little big bigger ! Exactly me too !!!!
My husband LOVES hot & sour soup. I can't wait to make some for him !!! Thank you <3
Can I eat bone broto in vegan keto diet ?
Hmm, Tofoo! Can’t beat it 💙 I can’t wait to try this. I’ve been vegan for 5 years and my weight has been stuck at 17 stone for 3 years. I hope keto gets my weight off. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and recipes!
This turned out soooooo delicious! Thank you so much for the recipe 🤗. I used tamari instead of soy.
I’ll make this for my girlfriend…. when I get a girlfriend
Great recipe as usual, thought I would just let you into the next big craze, Lupins..yes I know we have all read about the flour…but now it’s Lupin flakes..thanks to Steve at Serious Keto…but wait…fanfare..announcing Lupin beans, let’s just keep this between the 2 of us..😍
Just lovely. 🙏🏼
Looks great! Thanks for sharing!:) keep it up!
How much psyllium powder to replace the Konjac. Is it also one teaspoon
Please could you make kway teoh with wide flat konjac noodles when you create your 'homemade noodle' video? I really miss that dish and it would be the main reason for making my own noodles.
That was quite a nasty cut on your left index finger.
How can I make this soy free?
Fabulous. Just made this. Didn't have the specialist mushrooms in the house, so used chestnut mushrooms instead and it was still delicious. Also used chicken broth. Managed to find some white pepper at the back of the cupboard which works wonderously well. Thank you so much for this recipe which I will add to my repertoire for a cold day such as this when a bowl of hot, sour soup just hits the spot!
Is it same as agar agar powder
Looks delicious, I saw black fungus in Asian grocery and never knew how to use it. Oh and your finger is healing nicely… but what a scar! Such a bad cut, I’m glad you’re back in action.
Thanks so much. Looks delicious. I appreciate learning to make things I typically only get to enjoy in restaurants. Much better to make at home where i know what is in it.
Extra bonus another use for my excessive supply of konjac 😉
White pepper is the heat? Wow, thank you for this.
When would you put the silken tofu in? I'm thinking when you add the green onion, right before the last simmer?
Looked and sounded delicious, yet without the soy product. Looking forward to tasting this! Thank you!
Thank you so much! I love hot and sour soup. I am looking forward to making this.
Fan, years ago I learned to add a cut up 1" piece of horseradish root fresh from my garden — it takes SSSoup to a multi layer higher level. If you try it, you will never not use it. My recipe is very similar to yours — including cloud ears, and other mushrooms, except I add the horse radish. Horseradish is both hot and sour. It intensifies the soup. This is one of my favorite soups, along with Italian Minestrone, and French Onion.
that fungus? is the same as the dried shredded fungus used in Vietnamese spring rolls?
awww do we have to have tofu, with all that awful glycophosphate?
i'm not a vegan, but i do like your ideas. but not soy products, they are more toxic,deadly, unacknowledged than the animal products you are avoiding. 🙁
Hot & sour soup is always my favourite, too! Thanks for the recipe!
Hun, i love you! It's so difficult to go Keto AND vegan at the same time, and you nailed it! 💃
Hi Fan, it’s 8am and watching you make the soup, it made me hungry. Soup for me is the ultimately comfort food, any time of the day, I have soup in the fridge most of the time.I shall be making this today, I only have regular brown mushrooms and only smoked Tofoo but, beggars cannot be choosers. I have the black vinegar 👍👍👍👍 success, and as for sesame oil, always in the stock cupboard. Thanks for this fantastic and flavoursome dish. 🥗🥗✅🇬🇧 Maria
It’s cold today so this soup would be great to tuck into👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
I so want to try this!! I've always loved hot sour soup but they don't use thickening that's keto.
My only question is some keto authorities say to AVOID SOY. Do you know where I can research more about this?
Well done. Reminder to us to get you a nice asian soup spoon too – for some reason it does make that first sip even more rewarding! Appreciate the tip on adding the "sour" part at the end too. Thanks so much again!
I could probably eat the whole pan!!! Makes my mouth water!!
Sorry I am out of wood ears. I do love your french fries though. It is just so enjoyable to watch you and your voice is so mesmerizing. It is impossible to say no to you and your videos.
Looks good, no mention of carbs though !
I just bought tofu yesterday to make this soup!! I have all the ingredients, so tomorrow's lunch will be so yummy! I will be adding thin strips of pork loin as my hubby will not eat without meat. I will try the vegan sometime when I am cooking for myself. Thank you for the development of your recipes & sharing with all of us!!
