No one is sick but I don’t like freezing much, so after the duck, comes the soup.
I still had both carcasses, the wings, and necks so I cooked them in the pressure cooker with a clove garlic to get some broth and many scrapes of meat.
No fat left at this point, so no need to degrease, just put the sliced meat back in.
Next, I added the finely chopped beet and turnip leaves (but other greens are fine) and two green onions, half a cup of cilantro, 1 tsp grated fresh ginger, a fresh clove, a star anise, a spoon of tomato paste, a sprinkle of hot sauce, Japanese Udon noodles and the leftover of jus from the Cherry duck* from yesterday to simmer five minutes.
Squeeze in half a lime’s juice when serving and use the other half to cut slices to decorate. Poor in a bowl over a handful of fresh bean sprouts.
I know, not much to it, I guess it is the cook’s day off!
