Homemade Wonton Soup

The weather in Lethbridge, Alberta has been fluctuating so much, and this week's forecast is SNOW SNOW SNOW. So what better yet than to stay at home and enjoy a nice hot WONTON SOUP!

We have homemade wontons readily available - all you need is the perfect broth and fresh veggies.

Our Asian Supermarket recipe:


1 package Asian Supermarket wontons

6 cups water
3 slices ginger root
1 can chicken broth
1 tsp salt
1tsp sugar
4 drops sesame oil
3 stalks green onion

1 bunch fresh cut and cleaned veggies
- we prefer a nice bok choy or even yu choy to make it authentic ;)


1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Put the wontons (as is from package) into pot of boiling water. The wontons should float and that means they are cooked and ready for you to drain the water out. Place the wontons in soup bowls.

2. Bring 6 cups of water to a boil and add can of chicken broth. Add sugar and salt to season. When it comes to a medium boil, add chopped green onions and 3 drops of sesame oil.

3. Lightly blanch the veggies, drain the water and toss in with 1 drop of sesame oil.

4. Top the soup bowl with wontons on bottom with veggies.

5. Pour hot soup over and serve.

Voila- a wonderful wonton soup for this week's Lethbridge snowy forecast.

Come on in and shop the world at the Asian Supermarket.
