Pork dumplings, green onions, carrots, and ginger lend Asian flavors to this cozy wonton soup. Each bite of this quick and easy soup (it requires just 5 ingredients and water!) is loaded with tender pork dumplings.
1 32 ounce carton mushroom broth or vegetable broth
1 cup water
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 10 ounces packages frozen pork pot stickers or dumplings with sauce packet
2 medium carrots, cut into thin 2-inch strips, or 1 cup shredded carrots
1 small bunch green onions, trimmed and diagonally sliced
In a Dutch oven combine broth, the water, ginger, and the sauce packet* from one of the packages of pot stickers. Bring to boiling over high heat.
Add pot stickers, carrots, and most of the green onions. Return to simmering. Cover and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until pot stickers are heated through.
Ladle soup into bowls. Sprinkle with the remaining green onion slices.
*If no sauce packet is provided, add 2 teaspoons soy sauce and 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil.
