Dinner Rush! Carrot-Ginger Wonton Soup

Not unlike the rest of the free world, I haven’t been feeling so hot this last week. Congestion, light coughing and a perpetual need for multiple layers of blanketing – who loves flu season! So, in an edible effort to get myself back on the right track, I whipped up some of my favorite sick time comfort food: wonton soup.

When I’m feeling down, nothing brings me back like a big bowl of soup. I live in a curious little black hole where all of the Asian restaurants around me have nailed most Americanized Chinese delicacies with the exception of wonton soup – it’s just not very tasty in my neck of the woods. Needless to say, I’ve gotten pretty decent at making it at home.

Whenever going at wonton soup on my own, I save a boatload of time by using frozen pot stickers for the wontons. I start with a XXL dose of ginger to make a nice spicy base, and then simmer the pot stickers in the infused broth just until they’re tender. It’s a delicious meal for those ailing and healthy alike that’s done before the delivery man could even make it to your door.

Carrot-Ginger Wonton Soup

Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil
2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
1 (2-inch) knob ginger, peeled and cut into thin sticks
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
6 cups chicken broth
(1-pound) bag frozen pot stickers (18 to 20 pieces)
1 tablespoon soy sauce, or to taste
2 to 3 scallions, thinly sliced, to garnish
Handful chow mein noodles, to garnish

Place a medium heavy-bottom pot over medium-high heat with the oil. Add the carrots, ginger and garlic to the pot and cook, stirring frequently, until the ginger and garlic are aromatic, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth and bring the liquid up to a bubble.

Once the broth is boiling, reduce the heat to medium low and add the pot stickers. Simmer them, stirring gently, until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce.

Serve the soup garnished with scallions and chow mein noodles.

NOTE: Wait to add the soy sauce just before serving. Different chicken broths have different amounts of salt added, so taste it to make sure it needs the added kick.
