How Frozen Mini Wontons Saved Dinner

Here's the scenario:



Kid-sick w/fever

Mom-recovering from stomach bug

Dad-hungry and wants dinner

Plan:  5 minute soup with  Annie Chun's Spicy Vegetable Mini Wontons  (& a few shitake mushroom potstickers thrown in for good measure)

Here's  how to make it happen:

Pour 32 oz of low or no sodium chicken stock into a stock pot. Add mini wontons and potstickers (can be added from frozen state) and bring to a boil. Reduce and let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add 1/4 cup of low sodium soy sauce. Stir.  Add chopped green onion (both green and white parts) and season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Add a green salad with chopped apple, cheddar cheese and a few dried cranberries and call it dinner.
Here's the summary:

Kid-lapped it up and had seconds the next day

Mom-could eat it every day

Dad-felt like he was eating in a Chinese restaurant
