What Exactly Are Potstickers?

“Potsticker” serves as a catch-all term in the U.S. for Chinese dumplings, typically filled with seasoned minced pork. On the other hand, “gyoza” is the Japanese equivalent for dumplings, closely resembling the pan-fried Chinese variety we commonly enjoy at restaurants. While the realm of Asian dumplings is vast, for this dumpling soup recipe, you can use virtually any frozen dumplings you prefer! At Trader Joe’s, frozen dumplings are labeled “Gyoza Potstickers,” blending both terms seamlessly. Ultimately, what matters most is savoring the delicious flavors—so dig in without worrying too much about the labels!

How To Make Dumpling Soup:

  1. In a large pot, warm up the vegetable oil and sesame oil over medium heat. Add the carrots, white parts of the green onions, minced garlic, and ginger paste. Stirring often, cook until the vegetables start to soften, approximately 2 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the miso paste with 1 cup of broth, whisking until the miso paste dissolves. Pour the miso mixture along with the remaining broth into the pot and bring it to a boil. Add the dumplings and let it simmer until the dumplings are heated through, which takes about 3 to 5 minutes. Lastly, stir in the spinach and cook until the greens are wilted, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Blend in that soy sauce goodness and sprinkle in those vibrant green onion bits. Serve it up piping hot, just the way you like it. And hey, if you’re feeling adventurous, don’t hesitate to drizzle on some hot sauce, pour in a bit more soy sauce, or add a kick with some chili oil for that extra flavor punch. Enjoy!
