Asian Dumpling Soup

(photo from Real Simple)

I haven't tried this out on my husband or kids yet (except for my 3 year old,)
 but it's so easy that they WILL like it. ;)

I just combined some ideas from a couple of recipes with ingredients I had on hand.

  • Chicken Broth/Stock
  • Asian-type Veggies (mushrooms, edamame, matchstick carrots, green onions, zucchini, cabbage, bok choy) I think you can even buy frozen stir fry veggies that would make this even easier.
  • Spices (nutmeg, garlic, ginger)
  • Soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar (all optional)
  • Simmer veggies until tender.
  • Add frozen potstickers/gyoza during last 5-6 minutes.

If you want an official recipe for actual measurements, there are lots out there.

A friend recently introduced me to Kid History... This is so funny. But, I am easily entertained. We like episode 6 best.
