Sweet and Sour Soup


We had a ton of soup growing up. My mom would make the best soups and it would warm our hearts and souls the way only a big bowl of made with love soup can. This has always been one of my favorite soups. I love the spicy and sour taste. It’s a today must make! Do share your thoughts with me when you make it. I’d love to hear from you. 

Sweet and Sour Soup

Sweet and Sour Soup


  • 6-8 cups chicken stock (you can even use veggie stock if you’d like to make it vegetarian)
  • 2 chicken cubes (if you’re making this vegetarian then add a tablespoon vegetable bullion paste)
  • 1 cup coleslaw veggies or if you’d like you can shred cabbage and carrots 
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • Chili garlic to taste (I used a teaspoon)
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup shredded chicken
  • 1/2 tsp white chili powder
  • 3-4 tbsp soy sauce (I use the low sodium one)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Chili powder to taste (I used 1 heaped tablespoon)
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water


  • In the instant pot heat up the stock. When it comes to a rolling boil then add the spices and sauces and mix well. Toss in the shredded chicken. .
  • Mix the cornstarch and water to form a slurry and pour it in mixing constantly.
  • Now put the cabbage and carrots in.
  • Drizzle your beaten egg in a circular motion so that it forms egg ribbons. 
  • Turn off the instant pot 
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro. Eat with chili vinegar if you enjoy extra spice.
