FoodFiend/Vicci's Birthday
  Re: (...)
Wherever you are, hope you have a great day!! We miss you.

And, in her honor since she probably won't see this - here's one of the many recipes she shared while she was around. I've made this a few times over the years and it is tasty.

* Exported from MasterCook *

Potsticker Soup
Serves 2

2 1/2 cups low-sodium defatted chicken broth
2/3 cup water
1/4 teaspoon minced ginger
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/8 teaspoon oriental hot sauce -- (sambal oelek is a good choice)
1 large carrot -- split lengthwise and sliced diagonally
3/4 cup thinly sliced green cabbage -- any kind
2 large green onions -- slice all but keep the green tops separate (for garnish)
12 whole Trader Joe's Chicken Gyoza Potstickers -- unthawed
1 teaspoon arrowroot -- mixed with 1 teaspoon water
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Bring the broth and water to a boil in a medium saucepot. Add the ginger, garlic, hot sauce, carrot, and cabbage.

Turn down the heat to simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Add the green onion WHITES and the potstickers, turn up the heat to return to a boil, then turn the heat back down, partially cover, and cook until the potstickers are tender (TJ's directions say about 2-3 minutes)

If a slightly thicker broth is desired, add the arrowroot-and-water mixture and stir until thickened. Turn off heat and stir in the sesame oil. Divide between two deep bowls, sprinkle with the reserved sliced green onion tops. Dust with a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper.

Vicci - This is quick and really good. I usually use chicken potstickers from Trader Joe's, but you can use any brand/ flavor.


We're thinking of you, Vicci.
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

Recipe sounds tasty, Jean.
If blueberry muffins have blueberries in them, what do vegan muffins have?
