Chinese New Year Dumpling Soup
Being that it’s the Chinese New Year, I thought I’d make a soup to fit the theme. This Dumpling Soup takes zero prep time, 15 minutes of cook time and then all you have to do is slurp and enjoy it!
1 bag pre-shredded cabbage
8 cups vegetable broth
1 bag frozen dumplings – I used Trader Joe’s shrimp wontons
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
Red pepper flakes (optional)
Sliced scallions (optional)
Place all ingredients except the dumplings in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Then add the dumplings (still frozen) and heat about 5-7 minutes until the dumplings are cooked through. Top with red pepper flakes.
The original recipe in my head had sliced shiitake mushrooms, but when I opened the container we purchased, they were moldy, so I had to do without. The Trader Joe’s veggie and shrimp dumplings are staples in our freezer. I think we buy a new bag every week, but it was nice to try them in a new recipe. Have any Chinese New Year recipes to share?
