Easy Wonton Soup


This Easy Wonton Soup is a favorite in my house. We love the salty hearty broth with the delicious pork wonton parcels. Wonton soup is one of my favorite things to order from the local Chinese takeout but since we are cooking at home more often now, I have been experimenting with my own recipe. I think you will love this one as much as I do.

Start by combining the wonton filling ingredients in a large bowl. Assemble the wontons by placing a ½ a tablespoon of filling in the center of each one and folding accordingly. Next, prepare the soup. Once the soup has come to a boil and simmered for 10 minutes, remove the ginger and garlic and add the wontons. Cook for 10 minutes before serving in large bowls with a green onion garnish.

To make the Wonton Soup, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Easy Wonton Soup


Make wonton filling


Place ⅔ of a pound of ground pork with 2 teaspoons of soy sauce, 2 teaspoons of chives, 1 teaspoon each of rice wine vinegar, cornstarch, grated ginger, 1 garlic clove and ½ a teaspoon each of crushed red pepper flakes and sesame oil. Mix well using your hands until fully incorporated.


Wet edges of wonton wrappers


Wet the edges of the wonton wrappers using your fingers and ¼ cup of water.


Assemble the wontons


Place half a tablespoon of pork filling in the center of the wonton wrapper and fold each wonton in half diagonally to create a triangle. Press the edges to seal before folding the two identical corners in on each other. Use your fingers to press again to seal. Repeat until all wonton wrappers and filling is used up.


Make soup


Place 4 cups of chicken broth in a large pot with a 2-inch piece of peeled ginger, 2 teaspoons of soy sauce, 2 garlic cloves and ¼ teaspoon of sesame oil.


Boil and simmer


Bring the soup to a boil and simmer on low for 10 minutes. Remove the peeled ginger and garlic cloves. Return the soup to a boil.


Cook wontons


Carefully place the wontons in the soup and cook for 10 more minutes.




Serve the soup in large bowls with a garnish of sliced green onions.

I like the brothy poached chicken soup a lot more its not really an appetizer kinda thing though it'll fill you up so you wont have to make a main course.
