One of my favorite quick dinners is what my husband and I call Dumpling Soup! I buy a bag of frozen dumplings (usually Bibigo), and dump it into boiling chicken broth (one 32 Oz. box plus one 14 oz. can) with sesame oil, white pepper, garlic powder, ginger powder, dried chives, and a dash of soy sauce. It’s ready in about 10 minutes and delicious!
- 2 quarts chicken broth
- 3 to 4 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1 to 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
- frozen dumplings
- 1 heaping tablespoon sesame oil + more if needed
- green onions diced
Using a large pot, bring the chicken broth, soy sauce and grated ginger to a boil. After boiling for a few minutes, carefully add in your frozen dumplings. Let the dumplings cook for about 4 minutes, or until warmed through. Turn off the heat.
Drizzle the sesame oil over the top and scatter the diced green onions over the top as well. Serve and enjoy immediately.
You can easily add vegetables to this broth as well: baby bok choy, spinach, broccoli etc. If adding, add the vegetables after the dumplings. Be careful with spinach; it only needs a minute or 2. Spinach wilts down very fast.
