Potsticker Soup

Here at Healthy Old Fatties’ we love Chinese food. Unfortunately, much of what makes our favorite Asian delicacies so tasty are the heavy sauces and deep-frying. While these certainly enhance the flavor, it doesn’t make ordering Chinese the most optimal choice when looking to eat healthfully. Today we’d like to offer a fast, fresh and healthy alternative that incorporates much of the Oriental flavor we adore while skipping on the added fat. We bring you Pot Sticker Soup!

For This Recipe You Will Need:

  • 1/8 oz. chopped parsley
  • 5 oz. canned bamboo shoots (drained)
  • 5 oz. canned water chestnuts (drained)
  • 2 32 oz. boxes of low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 3/4 oz. packets of fried rice seasoning mix
  • 8 oz. shredded carrots
  • 12 oz. broccoli florets (washed)
  • 6 oz. snow peas (washed)
  • 8 oz. sliced mushrooms (washed)
  • 8 oz. frozen pot stickers

Pour your broth into a large pot. When the broth has been brought to a boil add in your seasoning packets, and stir.

Next, add in your vegetables.

Then, add your pot stickers to the brew,

and toss in your parsley.

Stir the soup and cover, making sure to watch and stir frequently.

The soup should simmer for roughly 30 minutes, or until veggies are crisp tender and the pot stickers are heated through.

Ladel your soup into a bowl and serve. You may choose to add some Sriracha sauce for an extra kick.
