I’ve been wanting to make Wonton Soup for months and I don’t know why it took me so long. It’s so easy and you can throw it together in minutes! You will need store bought wontons for a quick recipe though. I used the Bibigo Mini Wontons – Chicken and Cilantro which I purchased from Costco.
In a medium or large sauce pan combine 4 cups water, 3 teaspoons Better Than Bouillon (I also get mine at Costco) or 3 cups chicken stock and 1 cup water. Bring to boil. Add wontons and salt. When the wontons float to the top, add one cup of cold water. Return to a boil. Once the wontons float to the top again, add soy sauce and sesame oil. Add cilantro and green onion.
I always add more fresh cilanto and green onions once I serve it. I love cilantro! The more the merrier for me.
If you have a bag of wontons in your freezer like I did then you need to make this soup. This is also a great starter for any Asian food inspired meal. Try it with a side of rice, it will taste great!
Quick and Easy Wonton Soup
- 8-12 wontons fresh or frozen (I use chicken and cilantro wontons)
- 5 cups water divided
- 3 tsp Better Than Bouillon you can use chicken stock - see instructions
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp soy sauce or low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tbsp green onions sliced (or more)
- 1 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped (or more)
In a small or medium saucepan, bring 4 cups of water and Better Than Bouillon to a boil over medium-high heat. If you want to use chicken stock use 3 cups chicken stock and 1 cup water.
Add wontons and salt. When the wontons float to the top, add 1 cup of cold water. Return to a boil.
Once wontons float to the top again, add sesame oil and soy sauce.
Add cilantro and green onions. Stir and Serve. I always add more cilantro and green onions after I serve it for some freshness.
