Wonton Soup Recipe

Wonton soup is a standard of Chinese cuisine made with a chicken broth seasoned garlic and ginger and filled wontons. Wontons are an Asian equivalent of ravioli or tortellini when they are folded around a spiced meat filling.

This wonton soup recipe is so quick and easy to make. It has a flavorful broth with bok choy and is semi-homemade using frozen store bought wontons. Once the vegetables are prepped, the soup cooks in 10 minutes.

First, you cook your wontons and then boil the ginger and garlic in the chicken broth for 10 minutes, which infuses incredible flavor into the broth. Next, you add in the bok choy, cook a few minutes until tender, and serve! That’s it so quick and easy!

What is in Wonton Soup

Star Ingredient

  • The trick to a flavorful broth is to simmer crushed garlic, slices of ginger and green onion stems in chicken broth for 10 minutes. All of the aromatic flavors of the herbs infuse into the broth. The bok choy makes the soup more hearty. You can use fresh homemade wontons (stay tuned for my recipe coming soon) or frozen store bought.
