Pork dumpling soup

The flavours of Asia come to the fore in this tasty dumpling soup. If you don’t mind a bit of heat you can leave the seeds in the red chilli, but remove them if you prefer a milder flavour.

How long will it take?

40 minutes

What’s the serving size?

Serves 4

What do I need?

  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 1½ litres water
  • 5cm piece fresh ginger peeled, cut into thin matchsticks
  • 1 red chilli, thinly sliced (seeds removed if desired)
  • 1 small jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsps light soy sauce
  • 1 bunch bok choy
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced

For the dumplings

  • 500g pork mince
  • ¼ cup tinned sliced water chestnuts drained
  • 2 spring onions (green part only) finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 20 fresh wonton wrappers

How do I make it?

  1. To make pork dumplings, place pork, water chestnuts, spring onions, soy sauce and caster sugar in a food processor. Season with salt and pepper. Process until combined.
  2. Assemble dumplings by placing a wonton wrapper on a clean surface. Spoon pork mixture in the centre of wrapper and brush edges with cold water. Fold up edges to form a pouch. Pinch tightly with fingers to close. Repeat with remaining pork mixture and wrappers.
  3. Make soup by placing stock, water, ginger, red chilli and soy sauce in a large saucepan. Bring to boil. Add dumplings and return to boil. Reduce heat and simmer gently over low heat for 5 minutes. Add carrot and bok choy and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  4. Divide soup and dumplings between 4 bowls and serve.
