Ginger, Dumpling, and Rice Soup


It was winter and I was out of groceries..... 

My tiny NY apartment holds very minimal space for excess food and thus this soup was born.

Here are the main things that hold this soup together

Stail precooked rice

Frozen Trader Joes dumplings

Spinach that was on its way to the trash


A bunch of Asian seasonings to save the day.  


Serves 1 single girl in NYC


  • 2 cups of Chicken Broth

  • Frozen Dumplings (any brand)

  • Day-old rice

  • 1 Tbs Ginger

  • 1 Tbs Garlic

  • Sriracha as desired 

  • 1 Tbs Toasted Sesame Oil

  • 1 TbsRice Wine Vinegar

  • Soy Sauce as desired

  • One egg (saved for the end scrambled and poured in before serving.)



  • Bring the chicken broth to a boil

  • Add all ingredients and cook until frozen dumplings are cooked through.

  • Drop the egg in and stir before serving

  • Top with fresh scallions and chili crisp oil (Trader Joes brand suggested)
