Asian Broth with bok choy and dumplings.
« on: November 04, 2011, 03:35:35 am »
Name of Recipe: Asian Broth with Bok Choy and Dumplings
Number of People: 3-4 serves
Ingredients:
1 litre low salt chicken stock
2 star anise
splash of soy sauce
1 bok choy, separate the leaves from the stems. Shred the leaves, set aside for later and slice the stems 1cm thick.
1 cm sliced or grated ginger
1/4 tsp sambal oelek or fresh chilli to taste
A few shakes of sesame oil
3 spring onions, sliced
Sui Mai, Dim Sims or any chinese dumpling (depending on size, 4-5 per person)

Preparation:
Place stock, star anise, soy sauce, bok choy stems & ginger into TMX bowl.
Cook for 10 mins/100o/speed 1/reverse.
Remove star anise.
Add sesame oil, sambal oelek, spring onions, bok choy leaves and dumplings
Simmer 4 mins/100o/speed 1/reverse.

I used some Sui Mai dumplings from the Asian cookbook which I had in the freezer. That recipe is rather bland, see my review here but they were quite OK in this soup.

This recipe was based on one I found in a UK magazine called Olive - I varied the ingredients to suit what I had on hand.  They used kale and small pork meatballs instead of dumplings.

This is great Judy.  We often have this for a quick tasty meal.  I buy the mini dim- sims in a Kilo bag and I have 4 and DH has 6.  good standby meal.  You are right in that the broth needs to be tasty.  I also garnish with fresh onion tops.

Do you mean the green part of the spring onion Chookie?  The mini dim sims are perfect for this type of soup, much easier than making your own  :P
