Ingredients

  • 1/2  Cup  canola oil, divided
  • 1 1/2  Cup  chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2  Cup  chopped carrot
  • 2  Tablespoons  finely chopped garlic
  • 4  Cups  water
  • 33.5  Ounces  Tomato Sauce
  • 12  Ounces  Tomato Paste
  • 1  Teaspoon  chipotle-flavored hot pepper sauce
  • 12  Ounces  evaporated milk
  • 4  Cups  finely shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • slices American cheese, chopped
  • 24  Asian dumpling wrappers (3-inch rounds)
  • 1/2  Cup  grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Heat 1/4 cup oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrot; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until onion is tender. Add the garlic; cook 1 minute more or until fragrant.  Add the water, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and pepper sauce to saucepan; stir to combine. Reduce the heat and simmer 15 minutes or until thickened slightly, stirring occasionally.  Remove soup from heat. Carefully blend mixture in saucepan with hand-held immersion blender until smooth. Stir in milk and keep warm; set aside.

Make grilled cheese dumplings by mixing mozzarella and American cheeses in medium bowl and mashing them together with a fork. Fill each dumpling wrapper with 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons of the cheese mixture in the center and then run a wet finger around the edge of the dough. Fold the dough in half and press the edges to seal. Using a fork, press firmly around the edges on both sides to completely seal the dumpling. Cook the dumplings in batches. Place 1 to 2 tablespoons oil in large nonstick saute pan and begin frying. Once browned on first side, turn the dumplings over and add 2 tablespoons of water to pan and cover immediately. Allow the steam to finish cooking them, about 2 minutes. Remove the cover and allow the water to evaporate. Cook 1 minute more until golden brown. Continue cooking the remaining dumplings.

Place dumplings in soup and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Dumplings also may be served on the side, if desired.
