Frozen Asian dumplings or potstickers are one of my favorite easy meals to have on hand; there’s almost always a bag in my freezer. I usually cook them simply and serve them with nothing but soy sauce spiked with chili-garlic sauce for dipping, but after eating that on repeat for months, it was time to shake things up a bit. Turns out a stroll through the aisles of Trader Joe’s was all I needed to bring some new inspiration to my potsticker game. This stir-fry is just as quick and convenient but adds a boatload of veggies into the equation to make it my new favorite super-fast meal.

A 3-Ingredient Stir-Fry Dinner in Just 10 Minutes

Stir-fries have a reputation for being quick, but this one might win the prize for being the absolute fastest. You don’t even need to thaw the frozen vegetables and potstickers before cooking, since both will quickly defrost when tossed in the skillet over high heat. After they’re cooked and warmed through, you’ll toss them with Trader Joe’s soy and sesame-based gyoza sauce to make the easiest, most satisfying dinner.
