Since becoming quarantined nearly a month ago I have not ordered takeout or had prepared food delivered once. One night in a moment of weakness I bought fried chicken from my local grocery store, and I broke out in hives. I think I have an underlying allergy to certain fry oils, but in our current corona-culture, it was enough to spook my very non-germophic heart.
My next few posts are going to get interesting, as I have not grocery shopped a single item since March 29. I’m craving certain foods, but I am determined to make them on my own, including Chinese takeout.
POOR WOMAN’S WONTON SOUP
- 1 packet Chicken Bouillon (or cube, or chicken stock or other broth)
- 2 cups water (if not using prepared stock/broth)
- However many wontons you want to eat
- 1 teaspoon Rice Vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Ginger
- 2 tablespoons chopped Scallions
Simmer all ingredients together until wontons are cooked through. I wish it was more complicated than that. For extra zing, you can saute and lightly the wontons in a bit of sesame oil before adding broth.
