I'm not sure what Asian soups and warm weather are all about, but it seems like I crave them both in hot weather and in winter! From pho to egg, spicy rice to miso, I can't get enough of these sweet, salty, spicy and sour soups!

Recently, I was looking for a quick and easy meal that I could prepare in minutes with items I already had on hand in my pantry. (And yes, this soup is exactly what inspired me to share my thoughts on Stocking Your Pantry for Asian Cooking!)

Although I've made homemade dumplings before, I also like to keep a store-bought bag in the freezer for last-minute Asian cravings. We love the coriander and chicken dumplings sold at Costco and Trader Joe’s, but this soup will work with any type of dumplings.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, yes, this soup really is ready in under 5 minutes. In fact, when I timed it last week I put it on the table in 4 1/2 minutes. What can I say? When a pregnant woman is hungry, she does not like to wait for her food. 🙂

Sipping recommended, forks not required.

Where do you buy frozen wontons?

Costco or Trader Joe sell them. PF Chang also has a frozen wonton line at some of the major supermarket chains.
