It’s all about the broth: the making of a flavor-bomb vegan soup base

To make the broth for the Vegan Dumpling Soup, you will need:

  • Plenty of water 
  • Fresh ginger 
  • Fresh turmeric 
  • A carrot
  • Some garlic cloves 
  • Fresh Parsley 
  • Scallions 
  • Miso paste
  • Whole peppercorns 
  • Rice vinegar 
  • Red pepper flakes 
  • Ground coriander 
  • Mushroom spice/powder
  • Sesame oil 
  • Fresh basil with stems 
  • Star anise pods

All you really need to do to make the broth is throw everything (except the star anise) into the pot- and wait. In the last 15 minutes of an hour of simmer time, you’ll throw those little pods into the mix and let them infuse the broth with a hint of their sweet, spicy licorice-esque flavor.

Making the light and crisp carrot “noodles” for the Vegan Dumping Soup

With a good spiralizer, you can make “noodles” out of pretty much any veggie (except ya know, maybe asparagus or a radish- let’s not be ridiculous).

The noodles are super easy to make, and can be used in a variety of dishes- from faux pasta, to noodle bowls and salads.

I like to either serve the “noodles” raw, or very briefly cooked, so that they maintain some texture and shape.

Once you’ve got your broth simmered and strained, and your noodles made, it’s only a matter of minutes until the soup is ready to serve! Just add the frozen dumplings, carrot noodles and enoki mushrooms to the broth, boil a few minutes and it’s ready!

Serve it with sriracha, lime wedges, thinly sliced scallion and fresh basil leaves and let everyone customize their own bowl.

Bon appetit!

You can get spiralizers on Amazon, Target or even sometimes Aldi- ranging from $5-$50. This one is a great value.

Any rice vinegar you have on hand will work if you don’t have the seasoned variety.

I love this Trader Joe’s Mushroom & Company Multipurpose UMAMI Seasoning Blend, and use it in a variety of dishes for an umami boost. While Trader Joe’s version is my favorite, there are some others on the market as well, available on Amazon- and at some speciality markets.
