Hot and Sour Soup

Dwight  She introduced me to so many things:  Pasteurized milk, Sheetz, monotheism.  Presents on your birthday, preventative medicine.  
Phyllis   It's nice to learn new things.
Dwight   I was talking to myself.
 Phyllis   Okay.

I'm sorry, but I just love that.  Watching The Office is becoming like a security blanket for me.  I watch episodes of it for hours on end when Scott's not home.  

Scott also introduced me to new things.  Like sushi and miso soup.  While this isn't miso soup exactly, it is quite similar.  Since I'm sick, I'm really just after the broth here, but all of it is good. 

Hot and Sour Soup (in the slow-cooker from A Year of Slow Cooking)
1 cup of cubed firm tofu
2 cups of chicken broth
2 cups of water
1 package of sliced mushrooms
1/2 can of bamboo shoots (this was plenty for me and I even chopped them up a bit)
2 T. soy sauce
2 T. rice vinegar
1 teaspoon of sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (I didn't have these because I'm one of those people who refuses to scan the cupboards before going to the store.  So I used some chili powder.)
green onions for garnish

Combine all ingredients in the slow-cooker and cook for 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low.
