How To Make Dumpling Soup
Learning how to make dumpling soup is a good way to impress your family or dinner guests with your cooking skills. Dumpling soup is a popular dish in most Asian restaurants and is comforting on a cold or rainy day at home. Once you make this dish the first time, dumpling soup will appear on your menu regularly.
To make dumpling soup, you will need:
- Asian sesame oil
- 1 pound frozen potstickers
- 2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
- 49 ounces chicken broth
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1/2 cup sliced green onion
- Large saucepan
- Combine the chicken broth, soy sauce and rice vinegar in the saucepan. Add the ginger and garlic and mix it all together thoroughly.
- Turn the stove to high and bring the pot to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer once it is rapidly boiling.
- Place the potstickers in the pot carefully, avoid splashing the hot liquid. Simmer the soup for eight minutes and remove a potsticker to cut it in half and ensure that it is heated all the way through.
- Add the sliced green onions to the pot and stir them before turning off the heat.
- Remove dumplings from the pot first and place them in individual bowls before ladling the rest of the soup over them. Sprinkle each serving with sesame oil. Serve dumpling soup with a dry red wine for the adults and fortune cookies for children.
Regular vinegar can be used in place of rice vinegar if necessary. It will change the taste a bit but will still produce a delicious dumpling soup. Also, frozen wontons can be used in place of potstickers without changing the rest of the recipe.
