What do you feel like on a cold winter's night after a hard day at the office? A delicious Dumpling Noodle Soup. So quick, easy, healthy and light. I always make enough for lunch at work the next day.
Ingredients: Chicken Stock, Noodles (I used Rice Noodles), Dumplings (I used Chicken and also Pork and Chives), Chinese Cabbage, Mushrooms, Bean Sprouts, Spring Onions, Chillies, Coriander and Thai Basil.
And I seasoned the chicken stock with a few drops of Sesame Oil, a good splash of Chinese Rice Wine and a big glug of Fish Sauce. I add the HoiSin Sauce at the end.
My process - heat the chicken stock and sauces, add a handful of chopped spring onion, coriander and all the chillies (I used three), together with the mushrooms. Meanwhile add the rice noodles to a pan of boiled water until separated. Add the dumplings to the soup, and the cabbage.
Place a handful of rinsed bean sprouts into the serving bowl, add a large handful of the drained noodles, then spoon over the soup, dumplings and vegetables, then sprinkle with chopped Spring Onions, Coriander and Thai Basil. Add a dollop of Hoi Sin Sauce and extra Chilli Sauce if desired. Yum.
