What is Wonton Soup Made of?
This soup is so perfect and flavorful, and the perfect way to start out soup season! It is made of your favorite frozen wontons/dumplings and is so perfect for saving time on a busy evening when you want a home cooked meal. Wonton soup is really a takeout favorite that's easy to make at home. I love having a big hot bowl of this and then serving something light and quick like Chicken Stir Fry with it. It's not super authentic by any means, but it tastes great and fits into a busy schedule. Plus, frozen wontons are something we always keep on hand, they're a great dinner or snack! This soup requires minimal prep time! All you really have to chop up is green onions, and the rest of your veggies can come pre sliced or packaged! Also, you can really add or remove any veggies you don't want from this recipe! Let's get into it!
- I use olive oil to start because it's super neutral and I always have it on hand. To the warmed oil you will add in the white parts of the green onion, the mushrooms, ginger, garlic and red pepper.
- After your mushrooms are soft you can pour in your broth, soy sauce, and slaw mix.
- Turn up the heat and let it simmer!
- Once your broth is simmering just go ahead and carefully add in your frozen wontons. Then just simmer a little longer, about 3-5 minutes until the wontons have cooked through. So fast and easy!
Wonton Soup Recipe Notes:
- I used mini wontons by Bibigo for this recipe, we love them! I like the chicken and veggie, but they have a pork and veggie that are amazing too! Either one is fine. You can really use any frozen wontons you like here. Since mine were mini I used the full 24 ounce bag. If you have larger wontons you would want to use a few less. I'd recommend about 20-25 for larger wontons and 30-40 for mini.
- I'd recommend keeping a jar of ginger on hand for recipes like this! You can usually find a jar of grated/chopped ginger in the produce section at your store. Fresh ginger is great, but the jar saves time! The jar also tastes better in my opinion than dried ginger, but in a pinch dried works fine too! You will still get the flavor you're looking for.
- I used veggie broth for this recipe and preferred it over chicken or beef, but that's really a matter of taste! Use chicken, veggie, beef, or even fish stock if you want. Do what you know you love!
- Low sodium is also the way to go! Like with my Sesame Garlic Ramen Noodles I always recommend low sodium soy sauce, it's all that I buy and you can make sure your dish won't be super salty. If you only have regular soy sauce, cut the amount in half.
- For serving this soup, save the "green part" of the green onion for topping! Also, it is absolutely amazing with a drizzle of sesame oil and a squeeze of Sriracha if you like spicy!
