Potstickers in a Ginger Cilantro broth

March 23, 2010

This is another really quick recipe. A friend of mine recently gave me some homemade potstickers, that I was dying to try. Given the cool temperatures a few weeks ago, soup’s a perfect meal, with very few ingredients too!

What you need

  • 8 Potstickers of your choice
  • 1/2 an inch Ginger
  • 2 Cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 a cucumber
  • 3-4 Cups of water
  • 1/2 a bunch of Cilantro
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • Chilli flakes
  • Salt to taste

How its done

  1. Mince the ginger and the garlic, and chop the cilantro. Dice the cucumber.   Tip: I remove the skin of the ginger and then freeze the ginger (something I learned from my sis). When needed, I grate the frozen ginger into recipes. This way ginger lasts a very long time and has the same fresh grated ginger taste.
  2. Heat oil in a non-stick pan and add the minced ginger and garlic. Add some salt – this will ensure the ginger/garlic won’t burn. Add the cucumber and let roast a minute.
  3. Add the cilantro and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the potstickers and let stand for 2-3 minutes so they brown a little on the underside.
  4. Now, add the water and mix gently. Add salt and chilli flakes to taste. Let this mixture come to a boil. Turn off heat and serve hot!

The potstickers take on the flavor of the broth, and the warm, spicy broth is just what you need on a cold, winter night.
