 Can You Eat Hot and Sour Soup While Pregnant?

Hot and sour soup is defiantly fine.

As long as it’s cooked, any chinese food is fine.

Just be careful of certain chinese herbal teas because the herbs in them can bring on labor etc.

Hi everyone!  It’s Lindsay from With Salt and Pepper today and I’m bringing you one of my hands down FAVORITE soups to make, any time of the year.  I’m a big fan of Asian inspired dishes, especially ones that can be made in under 30 minutes, and ones that store well for a few days at a time…like this soup.  I make this soup all year round, but I vary the additions based on what’s in season at the time.  For this go round, I’ve included two of my most favorite spring veggies…asparagus and snap peas.  And then I couldn’t stop there, I had to go and add an egg because spring just SCREAMS an egg addition to me…so it just had to happen.

This hot and sour soup base is my go to on regular occasion for lots of reasons.  For one thing, it’s got pretty simple ingredients that I always have on hand, which is a major plus because then I don’t have to plan.  It’s also one of those recipes that you don’t need to follow like it’s rocket science.  The framework is there, but you can adjust the spice, salt, and toppings to your liking without meticulous measuring.  And the best thing about this soup?  You literally just boil the broth ingredients for a bit, then add in the rest just before serving.

How Long Does Hot and Sour Soup Last in the Fridge?

Hot and sour soup will stay fresh at least two or three days in the refrigerator.

The vegetables will be mushy if it is kept much longer.

This soup is similar in flavor to my Shrimp Wonton Soup, but with way more vegetables.  The toppings for the variation I’m sharing today can all be made ahead of time which is another serious plus in my home.  And if you don’t want to take the time to grill or bake the chicken?  A rotisserie is a completely legit and encouraged option.  ENJOY!!!

  • I love hot and sour soup and this one looks like it would be so quick to make. About how many ounces of rice noodles did you use? In our Asian store there are many sizes of packaging available.

    • Hi Susan! I usually use about 10 ounces of a 16 ounce package, but you could use less or more depending on how much you enjoy noodles in your soup!
