Easy Asian Dumpling Soup

Easy Asian Dumpling SoupThis hearty soup hits the spot on a fall night and couldn't be easier to make. The kids love dumplings in all their forms, too, so this soup is a hit in our house.

Use quality frozen potstickers or wontons; the vegetables you use can vary depending on what you have on hand and what you and your family like. We used chicken gyoza from Trader Joe's, but you can use vegetable ones and veggie broth for a vegetarian/vegan version of this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 16-ounce bag frozen potstickers or wontons
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 3 cups chopped bok choy, napa cabbage, or spinach
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 6 green onions, white and green part, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

In a large pot, heat chicken broth until boiling. Add dumplings, bok choy or cabbage, and carrots. Simmer over medium heat about 10 to 15 minutes or until potstickers are cooked through.
