How to Make Wonton Soup

This post may contain affiliate links.

It’s pretty much summer (in the middle of April) in Southern California right now. According to my car’s thermometer, it was 98 degrees F. today. The weather feels fabulous… the shorts and flip flops are out, windows are open all night, and dips in the pool are a must. So it seems a bit ironic that I’m choosing to blog about soup today.  But since I paired it with a summery Asian Turkey Salad, it works well in any weather.

The prepared won tons are simmered in watered-down chicken broth.

Add a little flavor… scallions, rice vinegar, sesame oil and salt. It’s done!

If you have the patience to make the won tons, the rest of the recipe is a breeze. The simplest of soups sometimes have the best flavors and are the most satisfying. We loved this, and it paired well with a light Asian Turkey Salad (can do w/ chicken too) for dinner.

    I’m pretty jealous of your summer weather, it was 37 degrees and raining this morning on my way to work…I could have used that soup!

    This one will go in my recipe book for sure!

    Thanks for posting the recipe!

    So um your wontons are perfectly shaped. How long did it take to practice that?

      Duo- I’m a wonton first timer! Except that I did make the deep fried wontons once… same sort of method. It’s actually really easy to do!
