Hot and Sour Soup

The name says it all, this soup is a a little bit sour with a kick of spice in it as well.  I caught a cold again and wanted some chicken soup so I opted for a more flavorful version of it instead.  The veggies in this recipe can be substituted, you can toss in any veggies that you have at home in your refrigerator or pantry.  This is a perfect way to warm up and forget about nasty weather outside right now.
