Instant Pot Hot and Sour Soup is a delightfully easy to make soup that will warm your soul with Asian flavors. Easy to make, healthy and incredibly delicious.
Add to the Instant Pot: mushrooms, tofu, bamboo shoots, garlic, Asian sweet chili sauce, garlic, ginger, white pepper, sugar, rice vinegar, soy sauce, garlic chili paste, and vegetable stock.
If you want the soup to be thicker, mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl until fully combined. Add the mixture to the pot and gently stir, let it simmer for 1-2 minutes. If you want the soup even thicker, add another of 1 tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with water. The soup will also thicken slightly after it cools off thanks to the cornstarch mixture.
Turn off the Instant Pot. Add the spinach to the pot and stir to combine. Add 1/2 the sliced scallions and stir.
For extra sour flavor, add one more tablespoon of vinegar at the end.
