Hot & Sour Soup

Need a quick meal that the whole family will love? This soup not only is delicious, it fills you up! I still make it even though I’m not on protocol anymore. My family loves it! I have a full batch recipe here.

Hot & Sour Soup

100 g. lean ground beef
1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
1/4 tsp. crushed chilies (or pepper flakes)
1/8 C. Braggs liquid aminos
1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar or Rice vinegar in P4
2 c. chopped cabbage
1 c. tomatoes, diced
1/2 c. sliced green onions (tops and bottoms)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 – 1 tsp. LCM Asian Gourmet Seasoning
1 tsp. lime juice
1 c. water

Brown the ground beef in a large saucepan or soup pan. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. You may omit the onion and substitute onion powder, if desired.

Note: Rice Vinegar contains 6 g of carbs and apple cider vinegar contains 0.

Have one Melba Toast or Grissini with your meal.

    Sounds yummy!
    P2 friendly? Even with mix veggies?

    I made this tonight and it was really delicious and very filling….I didn’t have the Asian seasoning, so I just used a bit more vinegar. Thanks so much for the recipe!
