Chinese New Year Dumpling Soup

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?

    Love the idea of throwing those TJ’s dumplings in soup! Totally going to try this. Might try adding some miso paste to the broth before serving 🙂
