It smells like winter, and there is no better way to celebrate it with a warm soup in bed and a movie.
So that’s what we did.
For the take in Chinese we made gyoza in a Chinese soup with bok-choy, mushrooms, sprouts and scallions (=green onions).
Gyoza: 2 eggs and some flour (I used only plain flour for this one, seems more appropriate to me, and still does). Rolled it as thinly as possible (used 9 on my pasta machine, which is the thinest).
Filling (should be prepared before pasta is rolled out):
300gr ground pork, scallions, ginger, salt peper, some soy and rice wine, and soaked (30min) and finely cut Chinese mushrooms.
After 3 min cooking in boiling salted water the dumplings go into the soup, which is as follows: chicken stock (or pork/ Chinese, or vegi), Chinese mushrooms (I used 2 kinds) and some champignon, and some ginger, boiled for 5 min or more.
Then the Gyoza went in, together with stripes of bok-choiy, and after 1min cooking it was done. Bean sprouts, coriander leaves and scallions and fresh birds eye chillies, and off we go to bed with *delicious* chinese soup.
**Please, do not leave the gyoza or its filling alone at any given time if you are surrounded by cats**
For the French movie he brought me ‘Le petit Nicolas’ 🙂
