And my Asian food obsession continues… This time though it’s a much more simple recipe and pretty healthy. I love a good broth based soup. Warm and filling but not heavy. This is soup works great as a meal or starter.
2 cups of chicken broth
2 cups of water
1 lb of lean ground pork
6-8oz of thinly sliced shiitake mushrooms
1 bunch of scallions
2-3 cloves of fresh garlic
Wash and dice up your fresh ingredients.
Thinly sliced scallions.
Go ahead and slice up the wonton wrappers into 1inch wide strips and have those ready to go.
Add a little canola oil to a large pot. Just enough to completely cover the bottom, about 2 tablespoons. Turn on medium high heat.
Add in your scallions.
Add in minced garlic and ginger. Mix everything together.
After about 30 seconds, add in the pork. Use your spatula to break up the pork into small bits as it cooks.
After the pork is browned, sprinkle in a little kosher salt and add the shittake mushrooms.
Add in the 2 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of water. Bring this to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer.
After the soup has simmered for a few minutes, stir in the wonton wrappers. These should soften quickly. Then your soup is almost ready!
Place the soup in a bowl and top with fresh cilantro and Serrano peppers. Squeeze in a little fresh lime juice.
Dig in and enjoy!
