We have another great soup recipe courtesy of The Modern Proper. It’s an Easy Asian Dumpling Soup (Potsticker Soup), which is full of flavor and super healthy.
The star ingredient are Potstickers, or Chinese dumplings, which are steamed on one side and pan-fried on the other and usually filled with pork. Add signature flavors such as ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and sesame seeds and you’ll have a fresh and flavorful dinner that the whole fam will enjoy!
1 tbsp. sesame oil
2 tbsp. fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups chicken stock
3 tbsp. soy sauce
½ bunch green onions, thinly sliced
2 large carrots, julienned (or 1 cup if using pre-cut)
½ tsp. salt
1.5 lb. bag frozen dumplings (potstickers or mini potstickers)
2 cups fresh spinach, packed
1 tsp. sesame seeds, optional
1. Heat sesame oil in a soup pot set over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger and saute until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
2. Add chicken stock, soy sauce, green onions, carrots and salt to the pot and bring to a boil. Add the dumpling (potstickers) to the pot and bring back up to a boil. Cook for 4 minutes.
3. Remove from heat and stir in spinach. Serve topped with sesame seeds and fresh green onions.
