Ingredients
Broth
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 small onion, peeled & finely chopped or 4 shallots
  • 25 g gingerroot washed and sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and bashed fat ones
  • 1 piece kombu optional but highly recommended
  • 1.5 tbsp black peppercorns toasted in hot pan, if possible
  • 20 g dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 1.3 litres boiling water
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp miso 1/2 red and 1/2 yellow for preference
  • 8 vegetable gyozas fresh or frozen
Add-Ins
  • 1/2 tsp oil
  • 8 fresh shiitake mushrooms or other Asian mushroom sliced
  • 6 stalks choi sum or pak choi
  • 4 baby sweetcorn sliced
  • 1 small carrot cut into matchsticks
  • 3 broccoli florets with stem sliced vertically
  • 12 mangetout/snow peas
  • 2 pinches broccoli sprout mix or similar
  • 1 red chilli sliced, optional
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp finely sliced gingerroot
Instructions
The Broth
  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan and add the onion. Saute for five minutes over a medium heat, stirring frequently. Cook until golden and fragrant.

  2. Add the remaining broth ingredients, except the miso, and bring to the boil. Simmer hard for half an hour then strain - it will have reduced to about 700ml by now. Press the cooked bits with a spoon to extract all the goodness. Taste and whisk in the miso and any other elements that you think it needs - more soy, mirin or more pepper. Add the gyozas now and cook gently just until done - about three minutes.

To Complete the Soup
While the broth is simmering, saute the fresh mushrooms in oil until cooked through.
  1. Add the choi sum, broccoli, mangetout, carrots, corn and red chilli to each serving bowl. Ladle over the broth and gyozas. Top with the sprouts, sesame oil and little lime juice if you wish. Eat hot or warm.
