I am not quite sure where Spring went yesterday. It was rainy, cold and a blustery 47 degree F. My 4 year old daughter was home with a fever and I was busy putting back the pieces after a pipe in the wall started leaking water into our bathroom. The day was filled with phone calls, contractors, plumbers and appointments; not to mention that my eyes are having horrific allergies. So, to me, soup was just the thing for dinner; just what Dr. Mom ordered! Here is what I created with what I found in the fridge.
4 cups of chicken stock
12 frozen Asian Chicken Potstickers (I like the ones from Trader Joes but wontons or dumplings will do)
1/2 cup frozen spinach
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger ( I love using the ginger in the prepackaged tubes in the produce section of the grocer.)
2 cloves of minced garlic
2 green onions diced
3 tablespoons of soy sauce
1/2 cup fresh sliced mushrooms
In a large stockpot, bring the chicken stock to a gentle simmer. Add all ingredients and simmer on low for 20 minutes.
I typically serve this soup with a salad with homemade Asian dressing.
