Vietnamese Hot & Sour Shrimp Soup

One thing that I LOVE about the accountability groups we run is the constant sharing of ideas, recipes, and support.  A large part of my cooking inspiration comes from those that are participating in the group.  They post photos of their meals and I often try them myself or think, “what can I do with that to make it something that I know we will enjoy?”

One of our recent members posted several recipes this week and one of them was this Vietnamese Hot & Sour soup from (  Most of the ingredients were in line with what we eat and the prep appeared to be very SIMPLE which is another big requirement for me.  So, with a few tweaks here and there and the addition of shrimp for a protein, I present this delicious Vietnamese Hot & Sour Shrimp Soup recipe!!
