It is good and I think if made in a slow cooker it would cook the great flavor right out of it. I just made it on the stovetop and it is a very quick soup to make. No need to cook for hours in a crockpot. I also would suggest adding the sesame oil at the very end before serving.

I totally disagree with a prior review that said this is tasteless. My Italian background precludes me from eating anything bland or flavorless. I chose to make this on the stovetop. I sauteed the broth and veggies for a number of hours. Then I added some peas for color. For my vegetarian daughter I cooked veggie gyoza in the microwave, meat filled bygogi dumplings for rest of the clan. I then added them to each persons 's bowl of soup. This was mild, delicious, and had an authentic Asian flavor. If you are a fan of this cuisine, you should enjoy this recipe. Excellent!!

I disagree with the others who reviewed. I think the soup was very clever, very easy and very delicious! My slight modifications are as follows: I didn’t make it in a crockpot because I started too late in the day. So it didn’t take that long to cook the vegetables with the broth boiling. I let them cook a bit firmer than el dente. The two boxes of (9.5 ounces each) frozen chicken potstickers I used had 4 total packets of “Lime Ponzu” sauce (each the size of take-out soy and mustard sauce packets). I put 2 of the 4 in the soup. And when I tasted it, I ended up adding about a 1/2 teaspoon of soy sauce to my bowl. I loved it!

I was not a fan. The soup was flavorless but with a pungent undertone. In fairness, my husband thought it was ok.

I made this soup just like the recipe says, and it was very bland, no taste, not even with the chicken broth in it. It was almost like the ingredients cancelled each other out. Not likely to make again :(

Question: Cook for 5-6 hours? Won't the vegetables be mush?
