As we come into the summer season, some of us will want to switch to meals that are less stodgy, but still hit the spot. This soup, which can be prepared in just 15 minutes, has a bit of extra bite and features wontons (small dumplings filled with morsels of chicken, prawns, pork or vegetables) which, for the purpose of this quick and easy recipe, you can buy pre-made or frozen. Add in our Sadie’s Kitchen chicken bone broth and you’ve got a divinely tasty soup which can be eaten at lunch or dinner. Will you want seconds? Absolutely.
What you need:
- 1 leek, chopped in thin slices
- 1 shallot, diced
- 4 slices ginger or 1 tablespoon ginger paste
- 1 pack of Sadie’s Kitchen Comforting Chicken Bone Broth
- Approx 10 wontons (we used chicken for some extra protein but you can also use a prawn or pork-based variety or vegetable option)
- A small portion of chopped baby spinach, baby bok choy and bean sprouts
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Salt to taste
- Sesame seeds, scallions and chilli oil to garnish
How to prepare:
- In a pot, cook the shallot and leek in oil, over medium heat, adding in ginger, for about 2 minutes.
- Add the chicken broth, cover and bring to a boil.
- Cook the wontons until simmered (normally 3-5 minutes). They usually float to the top when done. Add these back into pot.
- Drop in the greens, cooking until wilted.
- Add salt to taste.
- Garnish with sesame seeds, scallions and chilli oil.
