Vegan Dumpling Soup

Here’s a Vegan Dumpling Soup recipe for you:


For the Dumplings:

  • 1 cup finely chopped mushrooms (shiitake or cremini work well)
  • 1 cup finely chopped Napa cabbage
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped tofu (firm or extra firm)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or tamari for a gluten-free option)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Vegan dumpling wrappers

For the Soup:

  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 carrot, sliced into rounds
  • 1 cup snow peas, trimmed and halved
  • 2-3 baby bok choy, chopped
  • 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, sliced into thin strips
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or tamari)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prepare the Dumplings:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped mushrooms, Napa cabbage, shredded carrots, tofu, garlic, ginger, green onions, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Mix well.
  2. Assemble the Dumplings:
    • Take a vegan dumpling wrapper and place a teaspoon of the filling in the center.
    • Moisten the edges of the wrapper with a little water and fold it in half to create a half-moon shape. Press the edges to seal.
    • Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  3. Prepare the Soup:
    • In a large soup pot, heat a bit of oil over medium heat. Add the ginger and garlic, and sauté for about a minute until fragrant.
  4. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring it to a simmer.
  5. Add the sliced carrots and snow peas. Cook for 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften.
  6. Carefully drop the dumplings into the simmering broth and cook for about 5-7 minutes until they float to the surface and are cooked through. You can gently stir to prevent sticking.
  7. Add the chopped baby bok choy to the soup and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the bok choy is tender.
  8. Season the soup with soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve hot, and garnish with additional green onions or cilantro, if desired.
