Tips for this Recipe

  • We used HonDashi for the base of this soup. It's an instant dashi mix that delivers a huge hit of umami to the dish. If you don't have it or would prefer to use something else, make this recipe with chicken or vegetable stock.
  • We used Trader Joe's Pork Gyoza for this soup. You can also use 2 packages of Whole Foods Vegetable Potstickers for this recipe as well!
  • To make the shredded carrots we used this delightful julienne peeler that cuts veggies into thin little strips. You can also just shred them with a grater or cut them into larger strips with a Y-shaped peeler.
  • Finally, for the chili oil, we like this chili crunch oil, but the Lao Gan Ma brand is also a cult favorite and better for people who like a spicier chili oil.
