Dumpling Seaweed Soup - a very simple, easy and light meal - good even for those on weight loss programme. This is what we eat for lunch sometimes. This is what you will need.

Recipe (for 3 persons)

24 pieces dumpling pastry (wonton pastry)
dumpling filling
3 T Wakame Seaweed
1 piece of chicken stock
fried shallots and oil for topping

There are 3 of us eating so I made 8 pieces each.

Add the seaweed to half a pot of boiling water. The dried seaweed will expand fully in less than a minute. The Wakame seaweed is very dried and comes from Japan. You can get it from Oriental shop. It costs about £1.50. The look is very deceiving because on touching water, it can expand a lot. Seaweed is a very healthy food, very high in trace minerals which is reputedly very good for thyroid functions. It is widely eaten in Asian countries especially Korea and Japan.

While putting the seaweed soup to low boil, you can start making the dumplings. It is very easy as shown in the picture. Wet 2 sides and fold the opposite sides together to look like a triangle. When all is done, add the chicken stock into the soup, break it up to dissolve fast and increase the fire. Then add in all the dumplings. Cover and let it cook till done. Dish it up into bowls. Add the fried shallot oil and also the fried shallots. That’s it - a very easy, simple, light and fast meal.
