Wonton Soup

Wonton soup is a popular Chinese dish that consists of wontons, which are small dumplings filled with seasoned ground meat or vegetables, in a clear broth. Here is a recipe to prepare wonton soup:


  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Shaoxing wine (or dry sherry)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 4 baby bok choy, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a large bowl, combine the ground pork, soy sauce, Shaoxing wine, sesame oil, cornstarch, ginger, garlic, and scallions. Mix well.

  2. Lay a wonton wrapper on a clean surface. Place a teaspoonful of the pork mixture in the center of the wrapper. Wet the edges of the wrapper with a little water and fold the wrapper over to form a triangle. Press the edges to seal. Repeat with the remaining wonton wrappers and pork mixture.

  3. In a large pot, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the wontons to the pot and cook for 5-6 minutes or until they float to the surface.

  4. Add the bok choy to the pot and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the bok choy is tender.

  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  6. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve hot.
