Dumpling Soup

Friday, May 30, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily! Are you up for some dumplings? Why then, check these out!


4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (or use pre-cooked bacon crumbles)
3 green onions, white and green parts separated, sliced thin on bias
2 tsp. grated fresh ginger (I use the kind in a tube-again, to save time.)
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
4 oz, shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced thin
6 C. chicken broth
16 oz. frozen Asian-style dumplings or potstickers
2 Tbsp. fish sauce
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice


Cook bacon in a large saucepan over medium heat until crisp, six to eight minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Pour off all but two tablespoons of fat from the pan and return the pan to medium heat. Add the whites of the green onion, ginger, and pepper flakes and cook until green onions have softened, about two minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until beginning to brown, about five minutes.
Add broth and bring to a boil. Add the dumplings or potstickers and simmer over medium-low heat until they are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in fish sauce and lime juice. Serve, sprinkled with the greens of the green onions and bacon. Enjoy!

Thought of the day~ Do not give up. In due season the seeds you have planted will reap an amazing harvest! Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon

    Wonderful recipe. Going to try it.

LOVE the quote for the day. Planting those seeds, waiting for them to spout w/nurturing.

Can’t believe it’s Friday already. Time has flown by too quickly. But enjoying it all. John goes back Saturday afternoon, so going to try to make another special meal. **SIGH** Too quick! So wonderful to be able to spend family time!

Phone interview for Jason today, so praying something good comes of it.
