What is Wor Wonton Soup?
“Wor” is the Chinese word for “everything” meaning this amazing Wonton soup is loaded up with flavor! I’ve added in some of my favorite veggies like bok choy, carrots and broccoli! You can add extra veggies or change it up to add in your favorites!
The wontons in this recipe are homemade and oh so worth the time they take! The best thing about making wontons is you can prepare them and then freeze them. Frozen wontons take about 8 minutes to cook meaning if you have freezer full of wontons you can whip up a bowl of this amazingly impressive soup in about 15 minutes including prep! It’s healthy and delicious and definitely one of my favorite lunches!
How to Make Wontons
Wontons take a bit of time but they’re easy to make. I make huge batches to freeze. Simply mix the ingredients in a bowl, put a spoonful into a wonton wrapper and seal the wrapper.
There are many different ways to fold a wonton but my favorite way is to fold the wrapper diagonally so you have a triangle. Take the two opposite ends of the triangle and bring them together. It will form a shape almost like a tortellini.
