Vegan Hot and Sour Soup:
1 ounce dried wood ear mushrooms
4 dried shiitake mushrooms
12 dried tiger lily buds
2 cups hot water
1/3 ounce bamboo fungus
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
5 Tablespoons rice vinegar
1/4 cup cornstarch (cornflour)
1 x 8 ounce container firm tofu, cut into 1/4 inch strips
1 quart vegetable broth
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/2 Tablespoon chilli oil
1/2 Tablespoon sesame oil
1 green onion, sliced
1 cup Chinese dried mushrooms

In a small bowl, place wood mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms and lily buds in 1+1/2 cups hot water. Soak 20 minutes, until rehydrated. Drain, reserving liquid. Trim stems from the mushrooms and cut into thin strips. Cut the lily buds in half.

In a separate small bowl, soak bamboo fungus in 1/4 cup lightly salted hot water. Soak about 20 minutes, until rehydrated. Drain and mince.

In a third small bowl, blend soy sauce, rice vinegar and 1 Tablespoon cornstarch. Place 1/2 the tofu strips into the mixture.

In a medium saucepan, mix the reserved mushroom and lily bud liquid with the vegetable broth. Bring to a boil and stir in the wood mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms and lily buds. Reduce heat and simmer 3 to 5 minutes. Season with red pepper, black pepper and white pepper.

In a small bowl, mix remaining cornstarch and remaining water. Stir into the broth mixture until thickened.

Mix soy sauce mixture and remaining tofu strips into the saucepan. Return to boil and stir in the bamboo fungus, chilli oil and sesame oil. Garnish with green onion to serve.
