Slightly spicy variation of wonton soup. Cooking the wontons in water rather than broth helps keep the broth clear. Either fresh or frozen wontons can be used.

We made this as written using frozen wontons and added baby bok choy and bean sprouts to make the soup more filling for dinner. This was easy fast and made a lot. We made half of the recipe for the two of us and we still had leftovers. Read More

We love this easy recipe. My 13 year old makes it using a bag of frozen trader joe wontons. We cook the wontons right in the broth and just add a little extra broth. The recipe is very flexible and will come out ok even if your measurements are off a bit - perfect when hungry kids are cooking. Read More

Delicious and easy even for a newbie cook like myself. Just make sure you get the right chile-garlic sauce for that kick. I don't think I got a good brand I should have just gone ahead and bought Srirachi. But I'm still thoroughly enjoying my dinner I can tell you that. Read More

This is a favorite recipe of mine. I have gotten rave reviews every time I make it. I use homemade chicken stock, mini wontons from Costco, add baby bok choy and green onion and it's perfection. I add the wontons, baby bok choy and green onions all straight into the simmering broth and everything turns out great. Read More

LOVED this soup! I'm lazy so I just threw the wontons in the broth and that worked fine for me. I also added a bunch of green onions that I finely sliced. I could see making this w/ rice noodles too. Really great flavor...a definite keeper YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Used this recipe as my first attempt at wonton soup and I loved it! Added bok choy, celery, carrots, shitake mushrooms and green onions for color and filling and it worked out perfectly. Definitely needs some ginger though. I used powdered and it brought it all together. Read More

I have a wonton soup recipe that makes great wontons but is lacking in the soup area so I tried this recipe. I didn't use the lemon juice and I didn't have sriracha (so I used a teaspoon of hoisin sauce which gave it a little hint of ginger). I saw a one-star rating that said the soup tasted like watered-down soy...wonder if they added the wonton water to the broth? I though this made a great wonton soup base! Read More
