Here's an easy dinner idea for you all. =) Chicken noodle soup. Very easy.
First, heat up some water in a saucepan, and pop in a chicken stock cube. Bring to boil and add in a piece of chicken and chopped up cabbages. Cook for 10 minutes, then add in some broccoli and chopped up lettuce. Feel free to substitute wiith whatever veggies you have on hand - those were just the ones I had to use up. Add in some udon noodles - mine were fresh ones, so they don't take long to cook, a couple of minutes at most. If you use dried noodles, add them in with the chicken. Season well with black and white pepper, and perhaps some dried chilli flakes. I also popped in a couple of gyozas, home-made but feel free to use ready-made dumplings if you have them available. Boil till everything nicely cooked - don't boil too long. You don't want the gyoza and lettuce to be too soft. Fifteen minutes tops, and you have a nice healthy AND filling dinner! =)
I know, I know. Barely a recipe and something I've made before even. But this is even easier and even healthier, hehe. ;) Plus, the gyoza add a nice touch to it, I think. Boiling the vegetables all together also lend a great flavour to the soup. Anyway. Look forward to more brief bites from me over the next few weeks!
