Jazzing Up Asian Supermarket Staples

Sure they're easy and quick to make, but now Chinese supermarket frozen buns and dumplings never need bore you again. Skip the sodium overdose of excessive soy sauce and substitute one of The Collective's offerings as Chinese Condiment of Choice. Both pork and vegetable steamed buns marry well with our Fiery Carrot Chutney with Nigella Seeds while custard-style soft tofu springs to life beneath a dollop of either Punjab Corn Relish or Middle Eastern Zucchini Relish. So we know, despite all suggestions otherwise, you're still gonna dip (and double dip) those dumplings and pot stickers - make a weeknight lazy meal an occasion fit for company by placing around small saucers of The Collective's summer-ready ketchups: Green Tomato, Plum or Mango-Chile.
