Pot Sticker Soup

Source:  Food Network Magazine - December 2010

I was not expecting much from this soup as it was listed under a low calorie dinner.  We all know how they usually taste.  But I had a package of pot stickers in my freezer from Traders Joe's and wanted to use them.
I was pleasantly surprised with this and have made it more than once.  The picture doesn't look as delicious as it was.  I served the soup with warm crusty bread and dinner was ready in 25 minutes. 

4 cups low sodium chicken broth
1/4 pound ham diced
2 tbsp chinese rice wine
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp asian ginger
zest of a half an orange
2 scallions sliced
1 cup sliced button mushrooms
2 medium carrots diced
1 cup fresh red cabbage chopped (from bag - not canned)
24 frozen chicken or vegetable pot stickers
soy sauce if desired

Combine 2 cups water, chicken broth, ham, chinese rice wine, sugar, ginger, orange zest, salt and pepper to taste in a large pot.  Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.  Add scallions, mushrooms, and carrots.  Reduce the heat and simmer uncovered until carrots are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.

Add cabbage and pot stickers.  Cover and cook until pot stickers are soft and heated through, about 4 to 5 minutes.  Divide pot stickers and soup among bowls.  Drizzle with soy sauce if desired.  Makes 4 servings.

Enjoy - Susan!
