I know it's warm. But I couldn't resist making a soup when I got some great bac choy and garlic scapes at the Farmer's Market. The thought of a garlicky broth with bac choy and dumplings floating in it was just too much to resist. So even as the temperatures climbed higher and higher in my kitchen I made filling, steamed dumplings, cooked a veggie broth and brought it all together in a very satisfying meal.
If you've never made your own dumplings or dumpling wrappers Use Real Butter has a great recipe. I make mine veggie but lots of different fillings work.
