Whenever we go out for Chinese food, my husband and boys always order wonton soup. So I knew I needed to come up with an Easy Wonton Soup recipe I could make home.
Specifically, I wanted a recipe that didn’t involve making wontons from scratch (although that is definitely the best, if you have the time).
Unfortunately, frozen wontons aren’t something that are readily available where I live, so I used the next best thing–frozen pot stickers!
This quick and easy soup was a BIG hit. When I served it, my youngest claimed he didn’t like pot stickers and wasn’t going to eat them. Then he tried a bite and immediately changed his mind.
Once we ladle up our soup, we just cut the pot stickers into smaller bits with the side of our spoon. It’s a small price to pay for a meal that’s on the table in about 20 minutes.
Feel free to add more vegetables to this soup. I think mushrooms would be great, but since not everyone around here agrees with me, I leave them out.
I plan to keep a bag of frozen pot stickers in my freezer from now on, so I can whip this soup up anytime.Print
