This delicious and easy one pot 15 minute potsticker soup is full of your favorite asian flavors fast – and is a hearty meal for a crowd!
I love the cheap, easy frozen dumplings and potstickers you can find in the grocery store’s frozen aisle. Sure- they aren’t the best dumplings (and it really is pretty easy to make your own), but they are a great, filling option when I need something fast.
Making dumplings quickly in a pan on a hurried weeknight can only go so far though- and sometimes I want something a little more original and filling.
Since I’ve had a cold for what seems like all of January, I’ve been craving hearty, warming soups to help ease my symptoms- and I recently knew that a delicious thai inspired soup full of dumplings (I just happened to have a massive bag of pork potstickers on hand) would be great to perk me up.
This soup is so delicious and so easy- is there anything better than a super hearty one-pot meal that will work to feed a crowd?
I like my soups full of lemongrass, thai basil and chili paste- I actually added more than I have in the recipe below (I adjusted the recipe to how my husband likes it, and then I mix in extra thai basil and chili paste for my own bowls after he gets his serving.)
This is a perfect soup for a busy weeknight, or even for unexpected guests! We are cheating a bit by throwing in frozen potstickers, but nobody will be the wiser :).
It really is so easy- just check out my video below! And be sure to give it a thumbs up and follow my you tube channel for more if you like my videos!
