I was in the mood for something warm, quick and filling. The catch is it had to be relatively low in calories because I am trying to lose a few pounds. OK, maybe more than a few. Ok I need to lose the equivalent of a ten year-old kid, but that’s beside the point. I took stock of what I had in my kitchen and decided to cook Wok Soup.
Believe it or not, this is exactly what it sounds like. Soup made in a wok. Amazing, huh? High heat and organization make this a really simple dish. Here are the ingredients:
1/2 lb. chicken, cubed
1/2 lb. frozen pre-cooked shrimp
1/4 large head of cabbage, shredded (or 1/2 of a small head)
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 tbsp garlic minced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp ground cayenne
1 tbsp canola oil
4 cups reduced sodium chicken stock
Put the wok over high heat and spray with Pam. Season chicken with salt, pepper, cayenne and garlic powder. Add the chicken to the wok and cook until it’s done, stirring and tossing frequently. When the chicken is cooked, remove it from the wok and put it in a bowl.
Add the cabbage, onion and oil to the wok and cook until the cabbage is wilted and the onion is translucent. Add the garlic and jalapeno and cook 3 more minutes. Add the chicken stock, chicken and soy sauce to the wok and cook until the stock starts to boil. Add the shrimp and cook until they are heated thru. Ladle into a large bowl and eat!
Even you can make this recipe! *lol*
