Wonton Soup Ingredients
If you want to know how to make Wonton Soup, you’ll need the following ingredients to get started:
- Ground Pork – You’ll place the pork inside the wonton wrappers before using them in the soup.
- Wonton Wrappers – Of course, these wrappers are a must and will be filled with seasoned ground pork.
- Shrimp – Grab small shrimp for this recipe. You can always cut them into smaller pieces if they’re too big.
- Ginger – Use fresh ginger to add a special, distinct taste to your broth.
- Granulated Sugar – A small amount of sugar goes a long way in this dish and truly enhances the flavor of the soup.
You’ll also need a handful of other ingredients, such as sesame oil, chicken broth, garlic cloves, bok choy, and green onions.
Wonton Soup Variations
- If you don’t eat pork or don’t have any available, you can add ground chicken to your wonton wrappers before preparing the soup. The ground chicken tastes just as good as ground pork in this soup.
- Add shiitake mushrooms to this soup if you’re a mushroom lover. These mushrooms can add an excellent taste to this soup, making it even more enjoyable for you.
- If you’re a spice lover, feel free to add some sriracha sauce to your soup broth to give it a kick. You can also add sliced jalapenos, whichever you prefer to pack more of a punch in your broth.
Wonton Soup Recipe Notes
- When using wonton wrappers, you need to move quickly. If not, the wrappers will dry out quickly, making it difficult for you to use them.
- You can prepare your wontons in boiling water, allowing them to boil for about four minutes before shocking them in some cold water and then adding them to your broth. Of course, this is optional.
- Make sure you serve your soup immediately instead of allowing it to sit on the stove. The longer your wontons sit, the softer they will become, eventually falling apart with ease if you don’t serve your soup fast enough.

Can I use an alternative for sesame oil?
If you don’t have sesame oil, you can swap it out for peanut oil. However, it can slightly alter your Wonton Soup’s overall taste.
Can I stuff the wonton wrappers with veggies instead of meat?
Absolutely. If you’d like to make a vegetarian-friendly version of this dish, you can swap out the ground pork for minced veggies.
How long can I keep this soup stored in the fridge?
As long as you put the soup in an airtight container, you can keep it fresh in the fridge for up to five days!
