A Chinese restaurant classic. The warm ginger and hearty pork dumplings make this delicious soup a classic comfort food.
Taste is savory.
Weight is light.
Texture is soft and soupy.
Best categorized as Chinese American.
Wonton soup is extremely versatile. I make a wonton noodle soup version at home, where I cut the wontons into thin noodles, and use the dumpling filling as meatballs in the soup.
For a more authentic flavor finish with a drop or two of sesame oil.
I like to cook a little ginger into the broth for a warmer soup flavor.
