Wonton Soup With A Kick

Recipe by  

"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.

This was bad. There is no kick to this soup; after following this recipe exactly, the broth tasted just like watered down soy sauce.

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.

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.

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. :)

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.

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.

Fabulous stand alone recipe just as written. I am so happy and impressed, just made it for lunch, only had potstickers in freezer and threw them in with a fresh chopped chard and scallion greens. thanks for the best wonton soup ever
