Easy Wonton Soup

This Easy Wonton Soup takes a shortcut with frozen dumplings but doesn't take any shortcuts on flavor. The broth is packed with only a few ingredients - ginger, garlic, sesame and soy - but is SO flavorful. Earthy shiitake mushrooms and crisp green onions round it out!

  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp sesame oil, divided
  • 1/4 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp grated giner
  • 1 large garlic clove, grated
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 oz shiitake, mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 lb bag frozen pork potstickers (I like Trader Joe's)
  • 3 green onions, sliced `


  1. Heat a large pot to a medium heat. Add 1 tbsp sesame oil. Add in onion. Sauté 2-3 minutes until slightly softened. Add garlic and ginger. Sauté for 30 seconds. DO NOT BURN. Pour in chicken broth, soy sauce, mushrooms, and potstickers. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until potstickers are cooked, about 5-6 minutes. 

  2. Add remaining teaspoon of sesame oil and green onions. Simmer another 2-3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
