My recipe of the day is for ginger dumpling soup, which  is so easy  to prepare it almost cooks itself.

I  made this because I  am down with  a cold, and wanted something hot, spicy and brothy that would get even more  ginger into my system, which is supposed to help my upper respiratory infection move along faster.

Cooks Quickly

It cooks in just a few   minutes and  uses prepackaged frozen  potstickers. I  used Pagoda brand, but being aware that some dumplings vary in  size and dough  thickness, test your dumpling at  the end of ten  to  make certain it gets done. This brand is done as stated. I got them at Kroger, but I imagine you can get them in many stores.

I  also used broth that I made from “Better  than Bouillon” paste,  but maybe you have some homemade or canned and that’s great.

Not  much  else in it but the spicy oil, but I am really digging that stuff as I like it  spicy hot. But you know some people can’t have that, so leave it out  if needed.

Customize to Your Taste

You could add veggies too, I don’t care. I just  wanted mine brothy as a first course. But  of course I can always eat  even more as a light meal.

I love dumplings so may do just that. I  tend to keep soups  on  hand at all times during   winter as I love it for lunch, and also as a weird snack.  It’s certainly more healthy that digging in the chips bag- which  I still have a little bit  leftover from NYE but when it’s gone I probably won’t be picking up more of those for awhile.

The Lighter Eating Time of Year

I am not  exactly dieting,  but I tend to cut back in January to try to  counterbalance all that BS I was making for the last few months in a sort of  blogging party-palooza.

I’d say I was tired of eating, but I  am not. I’d just rather  not have to  shop for bigger clothes, IYKWIM. 😉
