EASY WONTON SOUP — This shortcut version of wonton soup uses frozen dumplings or wontons for a quick and easy Asian-style meal that’s ready in minutes!
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).
This recipe is simple and delicious. The whole family loved it! I used Costco wonton’s to complete the soup! Thanks for the recipe. ~ Carrie
If frozen wontons aren’t something that are readily available where you live, then try looking for frozen pot stickers or dumplings. My boys actually say they like this soup better with Chinese dumplings, so you can definitely just go that route to begin with.
This quick and easy soup was a BIG hit. When I served it, my youngest claimed he didn’t like wontons and wasn’t going to eat them. Then he tried a bite and immediately changed his mind.
If you’re using pot stickers, once you ladle up your soup, we just cut the pot stickers into smaller bits with the side of your 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.
Easy but definitely delicious wonton soup recipe. ~ Red
Frozen peas are great too, and so are shredded carrots. You could even add all three. Or just use this recipe as a way to clean out the vegetable drawer!
I plan to keep a bag of frozen pot stickers in my freezer from now on, so I can whip this Easy Wonton Soup up anytime.
Be sure to save this Easy Wonton Soup recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.

Costco has delicious Wonton’s, perfect for this soup.

I like how you pointed out that you need potstickers or dumplings to prepare won ton soup. One of my friends is Asian and he will come to visit me so I want to make sure that he eats what he likes. It might be a better idea to look for a restaurant where they serve tasty Asian.

YUM! I used a bit less ginger. Also added thinly sliced baby bok choy stalks with the carrots. Added bok choy leaves at the end with the green onions.
Hello .. this looks yummy but I do not have a dutch oven. Can I use a regular pot? For long do I cook them in a regular pot?
Yes, you can use a regular pot. Cooking time is the same.
