Easy 20 Minute Won Ton Soup
Easy Won Ton Soup
This will be your go to easy recipe any day of the week! I’ve made many variations on this soup in the photos below. You can add your own favorites such as; pea pods, mushrooms, fine noodles, or even some shrimp or cooked chicken for a variation. Just add the proteins to the broth and cook for an additional 10 minutes. I also made egg rolls to go along with the soup which were a big hit. My recipe for egg rolls can be baked, fried or air fried.
2 to 3 quarts chicken stock
1 package of frozen pot stickers. I used trader Joe’s but you can also make my recipe for shrimp and pork dumplings here.
3 scallions (finely diced)
salt to taste
3 cloves garlic (finely minced)
1 and 1/2 teaspoons ginger paste
1 small carrot finely cut into strips (optional)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon chili sauce (optional for spice)
1/2 pound shelled shrimp (optional)
4 oz thin egg noodles (optional)
Place all ingredients in a soup pan except the pot stickers/shrimp/egg noodles and scallions. Let come to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Taste and add more salt or soy sauce if needed. Add desired amount of pot stickers per person and cook for 5 minutes. Save the broth for later and store in refrigerator up to 2 days. Heat broth and add more pot stickers as desired for each serving.
I only cook the pot stickers per portions needed since overcooking makes the dumplings mushy.
