My friend Patti posted on Facebook the other day a recipe for a super easy soup. She said that her friend Lora made it for her when she visited her in Seattle recently. It’s only 3 ingredients! It sounded so good that I raced out to Trader Joe’s to buy the ingredients. I tell you, I want to always have the makings for this soup on hand. It can be made in just a few minutes. My kids were out riding bikes in the cold, and they came in and had some warm soup and told me all about their day. Soup IS good food. PS: the directions are straight from Patti’s Facebook page.
Patti and Lora’s Awesome Soup
Trader Joe’s Miso-Ginger Broth (2 boxes)
Trader Joe’s Vegetable Gyoza dumplings (I used 2 bags)
spinach or kale
Pour two boxes of TJ’s miso ginger broth into a soup pot and warm it up.
Once the broth is warmed, crack open a bag of TJ’s vegetable gyoza dumplings and pour it into the broth. Warm over a medium-low heat and the frozen dumplings will thaw and fall apart with abandon.
Open a bag of TJ baby kale and/or baby spinach and put into the broth to wilt. Warm on low.
Eat that and you will feel comforted like you did when your mother used to make you noodle soup as a child when you were sick. And if your mother never did that for you, you are now doing it for yourself, which is awesome.
