As the spring air starts to push in, there still might be a need for a soup to warm you up that isn't very hearty. In this quick and easy asian style dumpling soup, the soup is an easy broth style soup that is backed with smokiness of the bacon, plus the bold flavors of the ginger and garlic. Using frozen dumplings or pot stickers, it cuts the preparation time down and gives the soup filling feeling when eating. The soup can be done withing 30 minutes start to finish.
In a large saucepan, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to drain. Pour the bacon grease out of the pan except for about 2-3 tablespoons of grease.
Place the pan back over medium heat and add the sliced mushrooms, scallion whites, ginger, garlic and red pepper. Cook until the mushrooms are cooked and beginning to brown.
Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add the dumplings and simmer over medium low heat until dumplings are cooked, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and add the fish sauce and lime juice. Serve with the crispy bacon, green scallions.
