Busy workdays call for quick lunches and today was one such crazy day (actually make it a week) But then its also a Friyay!!
So I wanted to create something that’s quick, easy and yet perfect to kick start the weekend
Here I made this super easy and super quick recipe, which only requires throwing in whatever veggies you have in your pantry in a pot with olive oil and butter. I used shallots, celery, carrots, garlic and sauteed them until soft and brown, dumped in some chicken stock with S&P, basic seasonings, forgot about it while it simmers for 30 mins and then added some frozen Chicken Dumplings to steam in the soup for another 10 and Viola!
I used my favorite frozen chicken dumplings from Sensations brand by @sobeys
Lazy, crazy, easy Spicy Dumpling Soup, that is perfect for the upcoming weather. Sllluurrpppp!!!
Are you a fan of Dumpling soups? Yes? this recipe if for you. No? this recipe is for you
Youll need: Makes 2 bowls
½ cup finely chopped onion/shallots
½ cup finely chopped celery
¼ th cup chopped carrots
¼ th cup chopped coriander
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
3-4 finely chopped garlic cloves
2 cups chicken/veg stock
5-6 frozen dumplings of choice – I used chicken
Salt and Pepper to taste
½ tsp chilly flakes
Seasoning blend/Dried or fresh Rosemary
Sesame seeds and spring onion for garnish
In a pot/pan, on medium flame, add the olive oil and butter. Once the butter melts, add onions and garlic
Add salt and sautee on medium heat for 4-5 mins or till the edges of onions get a browning
Now add celery, carrots and mix well. Season with more salt, pepper, chilly flakes, coriander and seasoning blend/dried rosemary
Sautee for about 3-4 mins and add 2 cups of stock
Bring it to a boil and reduce the flame to very low. Cover with a lid and cook for 30 mins. Do not rush this process as it heavily affects the flavour
After 30 mins, add frozen dumplings, increase the flame to medium and cover steam the dumplings in soup for about 10 mins
Remove off the heat and using a ladle serve in a bowl. Garnish with sesame seeds and spring onions. At this point you could also add a wee bit of soy sauce and sriracha for extra kick!
Hope you enjoy this easy peasy recipe as much as we did!
