    I always have a bag or two of frozen potstickers in the freezer and was thrilled when I found this recipe. This is a quick, easy and very flavorful soup. I'm a big fan of sesame oil and this soup hit the spot. I garnished it with chopped green onions. Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe, Claire!!! :-)

    Wonderful, easy soup recipe. Great for a cold evening. I added the garlic and ginger in with onion at first too. I also added fresh mushrooms and sauteed them before adding the chicken stock. I also threw in some bok choy and snap peas at the last minute. I served the dipping sauce on the table for everyone to add or not, as they liked. Got rave reviews all evening =D Thanks so much for a fantastic dinner!

    Yummy soup. I made 2 servings and as others did, I sauteed the onions and garlic together and used one egg. Simple and flavorful. Thanks Claire for a nice keeper. Made for Cookbook Tag.

    I make this frequently. It's real comfort food for us. As someone else suggested, I saute the garlic with the onions. I didn't have an egg once while making it, left it out, and the soup was still great. Easy, quick to make, delicious. Makes the house smell wonderful. Thanks, Claire

    I prepared this as a main dish soup, so I added some chopped cooked chicken and some canned baby corn on the cob. As suggested by one of the other reviewers, I used only one egg. The sesame oil and garlic added nice flavor.
