Mushroom Wonton Soup

This delicately flavored soup is just the thing for when you’re feeling under the weather. Wonton wrappers are usually found in the supermarket refrigerated aisle near the produce section. You can also find them fresh or frozen at Asian markets. For an even quicker version, skip the wonton-making altogether and use prepared wontons instead.



Ingredient Line: 
1 12-oz. pkg. sliced mushrooms
Ingredient Line: 
6 peeled medium carrots (5 thinly sliced, 1 minced), divided
Ingredient Line: 
½ head bok choy (2 cups thinly sliced, remaining minced), divided
Ingredient Line: 
6 Tbs. chopped fresh chives
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. prepared black bean sauce
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. sesame oil
Ingredient Line: 
4 cups prepared mushroom broth
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
Ingredient Line: 
24 wonton wrappers, such as Twin Dragon brand


1. Set aside 1 cup sliced mushrooms in small bowl, and mince remaining mushrooms. Combine minced mushrooms, minced carrot, and minced bok choy with chives, black bean sauce, and oil in medium bowl. (You should have about 1 1/2 cups.)

2. Bring mushroom broth, 2 cups water, and soy sauce to a boil in large stockpot or saucepan. Add sliced mushrooms, sliced carrots, and sliced bok choy; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, prepare wontons: Lay out wonton wrappers on clean surface. Spoon 1 heaping tsp. minced vegetable mixture near one corner of each wrapper. Brush all edges of each wrapper with water. Fold wrappers into triangles, pressing edges together to seal in filling. Take two corners of triangle, press one over other, and seal with more water. (Wonton wrapper packages have illustrations of folding process.)

4. Add wontons to simmering broth, and cook 5 minutes.

Comments on this Recipe

This turned out delicious! The only trouble was that, as someone who's never made a wonton before, I could only make them at a rate of about 1 per minute. I couldn't get 24 made in the 12 minutes it took to boil and simmer the broth. So some people might want to leave themselves a little more time.

This is pretty good. I just feel like it missing something as far as a flavor or spice...not sure what...
