Easy Ten Minute Wonton Soup

wonton close upRaise your hand if you like making new year resolutions. I don’t think many hands are raised.

My hands are right on my computer keyboard.  I think new year resolutions stink. And if you really want my opinion, I think having January 1st as the first day of the year is not as good idea.

Who wants to start the year off with the weather being cold and the nights being dark so early? There is the let down of the holidays being over but all the extra pounds loom because of the great food that we are no longer eating.  Spring is months away and the only food holiday in sight is Valentine’s Day . I guess we can thank the Romans for their great idea of the new year starting now. Come on, really!

I just want to stay inside and sulk. Well, I also want to cook and eat lots of soup. Well, enough of my ranting…….Let’s get to the soup!

The stay inside thing has not been working as winter break is over and all the nightly activities have started back up again. So I still cook but very quickly. Last night we didn’t have much time for dinner so this ten minute wonton soup worked into the schedule.

I love making homemade broth but I always keep a good a stock in my pantry too. Trader Joe’s carries an awesome ginger miso broth which is great for Asian recipes. I like to also keep some frozen wontons in my freezer for this soup or just having a snack or appetizer. I happened to have fresh spinach but frozen spinach works fine also.

The ingredients can easily be adapted in this soup. Bok choy, kale or another leafy green vegetable can be added. I used chicken cilantro wontons but go ahead and use your favorite wontons. They have many varieties at Trader Joes but Asian grocery stores also carry so many different types. Or go big and make your own! 

This soup is a great week night dinner saver. Enjoy!

I love how easy this is! My boys love wonton soup but I have never made it myself so I am going to have to try this!

Just made this exact recipe and it was good! The broth alone was a little plane for my taste so I added some chili paste, sriracha, ground pepper, soy sauce and then added green onions to the mix. Not too much of anything just enough to give it a kick and it was really delicious! Will definitely be making this again, thanks for the recipe!
