Method

Dumplings

1. Remove coriander from stalk. Finely chop coriander, garlic and shallots.

2. Place mince, sesame oil, garlic, coriander, shallots, salt, pepper and ginger in a bowl. Mix until well combined. 3. Fill a small bowl with water. Line a tray with baking paper and spray with vegetable oil.

4. Roll meat mixture into 24 even balls. 5. Moisten the edge of the wonton wrapper with water. Place a ball of the filling mixture into the center of the wonton wrapper, bring 1 corner up to meet the opposite corner, press down gently around the edges and place onto the baking paper. Repeat with the remaining mixture.

Soup

1. Finely chop the shallot and remove the skin from the ginger

2. Place the stock, ginger and shallot into a large stock pot, bring to a simmer for 2 minutes. Remove ginger.

3. Cut baby bok choy bunches in half lengthwise and rinse well. Cut the stem into 3 pieces and the leaves into 2. 4. Add the stems and the wontons into the stock and cook for 4 minutes. Add the noodles and bok choy leaves into the pot and cook for a further 4 minutes.

5. Adult toppings; wash the mint and coriander, remove from stems, roughly chop into large pieces. Finely slice chili on the diagonal.

6. Serve ladles of soup, dumplings and noodles in a bowl. Top with the adult topping as desired. Tip: you can make wontons in advance and freeze. Simply place wontons in a single layer in a freezer bag or container and freeze.

    • Stir the dumpling mixture
    • Help to form the dumplings
    • Older kids (10+) may also help finely chop the dumpling ingredients
    • Often children do not like the complexity, spiciness, and colours of food that adults do. Make the adult extra topping and sprinkle onto the top of the soup just prior to serving.

Dumpling and Noodle Soup is the perfect meal for parents who want to serve their kids something healthy and homemade, but don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. The soup can be made in under an hour, and it’s packed with nutritious ingredients like chicken, vegetables, and whole wheat noodles.

Plus, it’s easy to customize the soup to your family’s tastes by adding or removing certain ingredients. So if your kids are picky eaters, you can simply leave out the vegetables and focus on the dumplings and noodles. Or, if you’re in the mood for something a little spicier, you can add some chili sauce to your bowl. Either way, Dumpling and Noodle Soup is a delicious and satisfying meal that the whole family will enjoy.
