Soupe wonton au porc et crevettes

Source : http://www.jamieoliver.com/news-and-features/features/wonderful-wonton-soup-recipe/#ahwptjpCiouFCqkp.97

Notes : Je prépare mon bouillon de poulet en l’assaisonnant avant d’y faire cuire les dumplings directement dans le bouillon jusqu’à ce qu’ils flottent puis j’ajoute le bok choy à la fin.  J’ajoute l’oignon vert en garniture sur la soupe au moment de servir.

J’utilise un 1/2 paquet de pâte wonton que je fais dégeler la veille (environ 34-35 dumplings).

Donne 6 portions

Ingredients :

For the wonton dumplings (makes around 36 small ones)

  • 36 small wonton pastry wrappers, round or square (you can find these in the fridges of Asian supermarkets)
  • 150g uncooked and shelled prawns, finely chopped
  • 150g lean pork mince
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar or rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • White pepper

For the soup

  • 1.5 litres chicken stock
  • 2 small heads of pak choi (ou bok choy), roughly sliced
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar or rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 generous pinches of white pepper
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped

Directions :

Wonton-making method:
  1. Place a heaped teaspoon of filling mixture in the middle of the top half of the wrapper.
  2. Wet your finger and run a little water around the edge of the top half of the wrapper.
  3. Fold the bottom up and over the filling, so it meets with the top edge. If square, bring the bottom corner of the diamond up to meet the top corner.
  4. Run your finger over the filling to push out any air bubbles, then press the pastry firmly around the meat so you have a sealed parcel.
  5. Turn it over and dab some water in the middle. Tightly fold one corner into the middle. Add another dab of water and then tightly fold in the other corner. If using a square, you can tuck down the top corner that remains sticking out at this stage.
  6. Repeat until you’ve used up all of the wonton wrappers and filling.
  7. As you make each dumpling, keep them under a clean tea towel that has been run under the tap and wrung out. This prevents them from drying out.

The soup :

  1. In a large pan, bring your chicken stock to a gentle boil.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the dumplings. Fill the biggest saucepan you have with plenty of water and bring it to the boil. Add enough dumplings to create a single layer on the water. It’s important not to overcrowd the pot, so cook them in batches if you are cooking lots. Stir them gently as you bring the water up to the boil again. When the dumplings float to the top, they are cooked.
  3. Once the dumplings float, use a slotted spoon to transfer them to your gently boiling chicken stock. Add the pak choi – first the white parts and then a minute later, the green parts. Bring the liquid up to the boil again and allow them to cook for around three minutes.
  4. Turn off the heat and season your stock with the soy sauce, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil and plenty of white pepper to taste.
  5. Serve up six dumplings per bowl, then pour over a couple of ladles of the liquid. Finish off with a scattering of chopped spring onions, and serve immediately.

Soupe italienne (aux boulettes)

Link

Source: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/italian-wedding-soup-recipe

Note : Préparer les boulettes en premier.  La soupe prend environ 1 heure à cuire.

Ingrédients :

Meatballs

  • 2 hamburger rolls or 4  2 slices white bread
  • 2/3 1/3 cup milk
  • 1  1/2 large egg
  • 1 1/4 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2  3/4 pounds ground beef or meatloaf mix
  • 1 1/2 medium onion, grated or very finely diced
  • 3  2 tablespoons grated Parmesan or Asiago cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

Soup

  • 2 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 1 medium onions, diced; about 2 cups
  • 2  1 cups finely diced carrots, about 3 large carrots
  • 2 1 large garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 4 to 4 1/2 quarts (16 to 18 8 à 10 cups) chicken broth, homemade or purchased
  • 1 1/2 3/4 teaspoons dried Italian herbs or 3/4 teaspoon each dried oregano and dried basil
  • 10-ounce box frozen chopped spinach 1 poignée d’épinards frais hachés
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 2/3 1 1/3 cups uncooked orzo, ditalini, or other small, roundish pasta

Directions :

  1. To make the meatballs, combine the bread, egg, milk, and salt, stirring till everything is well moistened. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes to soften.
  2. Add the ground meat, onion, cheese, and herbs. Mix gently till thoroughly combined.
  3. Shape tiny meatballs, (about 1″ diameter or less). Using a level teaspoon scoop (which volume-wise is actually 2 level measuring teaspoons) makes about the right size. Place the meatballs on a parchment-lined or lightly greased cookie sheet, and refrigerate them while you prepare the soup.
  4. Get out a large pot, at least 6-quart capacity. Pour the olive oil into the bottom of the pot, and add the onions and carrots. Sauté, stirring frequently, until the onions are translucent and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook for another couple of minutes.
  5. Add the broth and herbs, bring to a simmer, and cook gently for 10 minutes.
  6. Add the frozen chopped spinach, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, total; the soup will take awhile to come back to a simmer, due to the frozen spinach. Help it along by breaking it up with a fork as it cooks.
  7. Gently drop the meatballs into the soup. Simmer the soup for 30 minutes or so, then stir in the pasta, cooking till it’s al dente.  For orzo, this will take about 8 minutes or so.
  8. Ajouter les épinards frais hachés, laisser cuire 1 à 2 minutes.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste; using reduced-salt canned chicken broth, we added 1 teaspoon salt; and 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper.
  10. Serve the soup garnished with freshly grated Parmesan or Asiago cheese.

Soupe thai au coconut et curry

Source : http://chefmichaelsmith.com/recipe/thai-coconut-curry-soup/

Note : Je n’ai pas mis de coriandre et de fèves germées la première fois que j’ai fait cette soupe.  J’ajoute parfois des pois mange-tout.

Temps de cuisson : environ 30 minutes.

Serving: Serves 4

Ingrédients :

  • 2 14 ounce cans premium coconut milk
  • 1 heaping Tablespoon Thai curry paste (rouge)
  • 1 bunch cilantro roots, rinsed well
  • 2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 4 or 5 lime leaves
  • 2 stalks lemon grass, halved lengthwise, woody leaves removed
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2  1 limes zest and juice
  • a small knob frozen ginger
  • a handful bean sprouts
  • 8 ounce package rice noodles
  • 1 bunch cilantro leaves, rinsed well
  • 2 or 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • a sprinkle or two salt or soy sauce

Directions :

  1. Scoop the thick coconut cream from the top of just one of the cans into a large stockpot set over a medium-high heat. Melt the cream, add the curry paste and stir for a few minutes until they begin to sizzle.
  2. Add the cilantro roots and chicken and sauté until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the coconut juice from the first can and all the contents of the second can along with the chicken broth, carrot, lime leaves, lemon grass, fish sauce and lime zest and juice. Grate the frozen ginger into the broth with a Microplane grater or standard box grater. Simmer for 20 minutes or so.
  4. Stir in the bean sprouts. Add the rice noodles, gently pushing them beneath the surface of the broth. Turn off the heat and let stand until the noodles soften, about 5 minutes. Rice noodles don’t need to simmer like pasta to cook; they simply need to rehydrate in the hot liquid.
  5. Stir in most of the cilantro leaves.
  6. Remove the lemon grass stalks.
  7. Taste and season with a touch more salt (or soy sauce) as needed. Ladle into large bowls and garnish with the green onions and remaining cilantro leaves.
