Wonton soup.


For the Wontons:

  • 1/2 pound (225g) ground pork
  • 1/2 pound (225g) raw shrimp, peeled, deveined, and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 package wonton wrappers (usually about 40 wrappers)

For the Soup:

  • 8 cups (2 liters) chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2-3 slices of fresh ginger
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 green onion, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Salt and white pepper to taste
  • 1-2 cups bok choy or baby bok choy, chopped (or any greens of your choice)
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, chopped shrimp, minced garlic, green onion, soy sauce, sesame oil, grated ginger, salt, and white pepper. Mix well until the filling is thoroughly combined.
  2. Lay out a wonton wrapper and place about 1 teaspoon of the filling in the center. Moisten the edges of the wrapper with water, then fold it in half to form a triangle, pressing the edges to seal. You can also get creative with different folding techniques if desired.
  3. In a large pot, bring the chicken or vegetable broth to a boil. Add the ginger slices, smashed garlic, and green onion pieces. Allow it to simmer for about 10-15 minutes to infuse the broth with flavor. Remove these aromatics when you’re ready to serve.
  4. Season the broth with salt and white pepper to taste.
  5. Bring a separate pot of water to a boil and add the wontons. Cook the wontons until they float to the surface (about 2-3 minutes). Remove them with a slotted spoon and place them directly into serving bowls.
  6. Add the chopped bok choy or greens to the simmering broth and cook for 2-3 minutes until they’re tender.
  7. Ladle the hot broth and greens over the cooked wontons in the serving bowls.
  8. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves if desired.

Your homemade wonton soup is ready to serve. It’s a flavorful and comforting dish perfect for a light and satisfying dinner.Wonton soup.
