Bean Paste Soup (Denjang Chigae) and Vegetable Dumplings

I found another cooking blog that lists all the Weight Watcher Points+ values AND it’s vegan! Score! Toby stayed home from work yesterday with an upset stomach, and this was a good dinner  for that occasion (is that an occasion?). This is a very mild soup. I loved the wontons! They are a little time-consuming to make, but they are worth the effort! Hey, for a 4 point dinner, it really doesn’t get much better than this!

rating: soup: 8, wontons: 9

Bean Paste Soup (Denjang Chigae) and Vegetable Dumplings

for the soup:

6 cups water
2 tbsp Korean denjang (soybean) paste (I used miso)
1/2 pound cubed firm tofu
3 chopped green onions
rice (optional)

In a large saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add the soybean paste and stir until mixed. Add the tofu and green onion. Simmer for 15 minutes. Season to taste with soy sauce and/or Srirachu sauce. Add rice.

4 Servings.  Weight Watchers PointsPlus value: 1

for the dumplings:

cooking spray
1/2 cup shredded cabbage (I used broccoli slaw)
2 tsp soy sauce
I added 2 sliced green onions
wonton wrappers

Coat a skillet with cooking spray, then saute the cabbage and soy sauce. Fill the wonton wrappers, then bake on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray for 15 minutes at 350 degrees F.  Serve with soy sauce or dunk in the soup.

6 servings.  Weight Watchers PointsPlus value: 3
