Shortcut Dumpling Soup
You'll be amazed what a quick simmer with fresh ginger and scallions will do for boxed chicken broth. Throw in frozen pot stickers (Chinese dumplings), edamame and red cabbage for a nutritious dinner that's ready in 30 minutes.
Chili-garlic sauce (sambal oelek) is widely available. Look for black sesame seeds at specialty spice stores.
