Dumpling Lemongrass Soup

I'm usually a Sunday pizza guy but I had pizza last night and I still feel full so I needed something lighter and raw food is boring on a Sunday night. This Dumpling soup is awesome and as I'm lazy today I made this with pre-made Dumplings from the local Asian store.
All you need is some time to prepare the Consommé for the Dumplings and these are the ingredients for 2 servings.

  1. 8 Vegetable Dumplings
  2. 1 l of Renee Voltaires Vegetable Broth.
  3. 1Celery stalk (diced)
  4. 2 Garlic cloves (crushed)
  5. Ginger (fresh, about 2 cm, diced)
  6. Lemongrass, 2 stalks
  7. Leek (1/2), diced
  8. 1 Kaffir Lime Leaf
  9. 1 Dried Red Chili
  10. 1 Shallot (diced)
  11. 1/2 tsp Black Peppercorns (whole)
  12. Sugar
  13. Olive Oil and Salt
This is how it's done.
  1. Heat the Olive Oil and Salt but don't let it smoke.
  2. Add everything except the Sugar and Broth.
  3. Sauté for about 3-5 minutes on medium heat.
  4. Add the Broth and Sugar
  5. Let is simmer for 45 minutes
  6. While you wait, steam the Dumplings, but not too much so they break.
  7. Pour the Consommé through a sieve and discard the vegetables.
  8. Add the dumplings and heat up.
  9. Serve immediately.
I love Asian food and this is a perfect, light dish and it smells terrific. You can experiment with this a lot and add more
