Learn how to make easy 10-minute wonton soup, using just a handful of delicious ingredients.



  • 8-12 wontons, fresh or frozen (I use chicken and cilantro wontons)
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups water, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce (or regular soy sauce)
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon green onions, sliced


  1. In a small saucepan, bring chicken stock and 1 cup of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add wontons and salt. When the wontons float to the top, add a cup of cold water.
  2. Once wontons float to the top again, add soy sauce and sesame oil.
  3. Scoop wontons out into a bowl and top up with soup base. Garnish with cilantro and green onions. Enjoy!


How to make this soup vegetarian. For a vegetarian wonton soup, simply use vegetarian-stuffed wontons and vegetable stock, instead of chicken stock.
