Wonderful, amazing, delicious soup! The filling made 48 wontons for me, definitely using less than a tablespoon of filling per wrapper (maybe more like 1.5 teaspoons), using a little less than one 14-ounce package of wonton wrappers. Served this for dinner with some steamed edamame. I made a couple of small changes too:
(1) I left out the shrimp (my husband is allergic) and was still thrilled with the flavor.
(2) I cooked the wontons separately in boiling water in batches, then when a batch was finished I just added it to the broth+vegetables, repeating this until all were cooked.
(3) I found that 8 cups of broth wasn't enough for 8 servings of soup, since there were so many wontons and veggies, so I ended up just adding some extra broth until it was more like the wonton soup I'm used to. I probably added an additional 2-3 cups total. I know that seems like a lot, but the leftovers needed it especially, since the wrappers drink up some of the broth.
I will definitely be making this again!
