Miso Soup with Sweet Potato Dumplings

Another fall favorite of mine is the Sweet Potato. There are endless ways to prepare this delicious fall treat: bake them, mash them, bake them into muffins, cook sweet potato fries, etc. But how about as a dumpling filling which can be added to miso soup?  Although it’s still beautiful  during the day in Chicago, when the sun goes down there’s a fall chill in the air. Make this soup to warm you up!


Miso Soup with Sweet Potato Dumplings

Makes 2 dinner servings


1 sweet potato

2 cloves garlic

1 shallot

Pinch of red pepper flakes

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 baby bok choy

1 cup mushrooms

6 cups water

wonton wrappers

3 tbsp miso

4 scallions


Cook sweet potato with preferred method (if short on time stick it in the microwave for about 8 minutes). Once potato is cooled, peel and mash it. Fry garlic and shallot in a little bit of olive oil for about 2 minutes. Add red pepper flakes, salt, pepper. Remove from heat and add to mashed sweet potato.

Meanwhile, place bok choy and mushrooms in a large pot with 2 cups water and set aside.


Wet fingertips, place a wonton wrapper in the center of hand, and add about a tbsp of sweet potato filling i the center and squeeze sides of wrapper around filling.
