Easy Dumpling Soup is one of my absolute favorite things to throw together if I want a quick-and-simple homemade lunch or an effortless dinner that’s still wholesome, comforting, and budget-friendly. I’ve designed this recipe to be as versatile as possible, dressing up mostly store-bought ingredients, in order to scratch that “itch” instead of eating out again.

  • Frozen dumplings — You can find Asian-style dumplings in the freezer section, usually filled with pork, vegetables, shrimp, or a combination of those ingredients.
  • Broth — We fortified our vegetable broth with soy sauce and toasted sesame oil!
  • A handful of fresh greens — like sliced green onions, fresh spinach, or baby bok choy
  • Condiments — Use anything your heart desires! Try chili crisp, sesame seeds, black vinegar, cilantro, and more!

Easy Dumpling Soup is the perfect quick dinner because it’s endlessly versatile, insanely budget-friendly, and can be made in 15 minutes.





    Step 1

    Combine the vegetable broth, soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, and the white parts of a sliced green onion in a medium-sized pot. (If using, also add the fish sauce, pre-cooked proteins or tofu, and any fresh or frozen vegetables that need time to soften.)

    Step 2

    Bring the broth up to a boil on medium-high heat. Once boiling, add the dumplings.

    Step 3

    Cover the pot and allow the soup to come back up to a boil. Boil the dumplings for about 2 minutes or until they are cooked through. (Consult package directions.)

    Step 4

    Turn off the heat and stir in the green parts of the sliced green onion and a handful of spinach.

    Step 5

    Split the soup into 2 serving bowls and top with any desired condiments.


    *You can use any flavor (pork, vegetable, chicken, etc.), but I prefer ones with pork and vegetables.
