this light and flavorful recipe is perfect on a snowy afternoon! this soup is surprisingly filling and warms you up. i love the brightness of the fresh ginger and garlic. this is a great twist on a classic!

1 box vegetable broth

4 large shiitake mushrooms cleaned and sliced, with the stems removed

3 cloves of garlic finely minced

green onions finely sliced

2 tablespoons finely minced fresh ginger

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 teaspoons sesame oil

2 tablespoons water

red pepper flakes

salt to taste

in a large pan, saute mushrooms and garlic in olive oil

when mushrooms are tender, add vegetable broth and bring to a boil

in a separate bowl, whisk together vinegar, sesame oil, cornstarch, water, soy sauce, ginger and pepper flakes

add this mixture to the mushroom soup and simmer

remove from heat, serve and garnish with green onions
