hot and sour soup with bok choi

  Mikel needed to make something quick today. He likes Chinese Hot and Sour Soup and we haven't had much luck finding a recipe he liked; none were like he's had in restaurants. Although we had tried and failed a few times in the past - too complicated, too sour, didn't have all the ingredients, etc. - it did supply the much needed experience to go from making it so-so, to finally making it exceptional. It was ready in a jiffy and it was tasty. All good.

Cost Breakdown:
1 oz shitaki mushrooms: $1.50
1/2 package baked tofu: $2
onion, garlic, ginger, vinegar, green onion: $2
bok choi (CSA): $2.50 
Total to feed a family of 5:
