ASIAN DUMPLING SOUP

I love the ease and simplicity of this soup. A well stocked pantry and fridge will already have most of these ingredients on hand. And, the flavors are warm and full for a cool, fall evening. Best part?..This comes together within minutes and is easily adaptable, so you can add the veggies you like. I’ve chosen peas and carrots, but broccoli and mushrooms would work well too.

Get creative, get cooking!
