Super Quick Wonton Soup



A quick Sunday post: The Chinese Year of the Horse has just began, and what a better way to celebrate the Lunar New Year than a Chinese dish? By the way,  I am a horse (1978) on the Chinese Zodiac, so this should be my year!

Besides, I was just thinking, what to do on a lazy winter Sunday evening when you have already had a great roast for lunch and then some delicious tea & cake in the afternoon? Some take away? no need: I came up with a delicious wonton soup extra easy to prepare! This morning I’ve been to my local Asian grocery store and bought some frozen dumplings that I used in order to make this version so quick and easy, let’s go with it!

Servings: 2

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 litre chicken stock (use vegetable stock for vegetarian/vegan option)
  • 8 wontons (I used pork, veggies and mushrooms dumplings, use vegetable ones for vegetarian/vegan option)
  • 4 scallion stems, diagonally sliced
  • Soy sauce to taste
  • a dash of sesame oil


Heat the oil in a soup pot, add the garlic and the ginger and briefly sauté over medium-low heat. Pour the stock and bring to a boil, drop in the wontons,  incorporate the scallions and season with soy sauce to taste. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer until the dumplings are cooked. Pour a dash of sesame oil, serve and enjoy!
