Make Your Own Take Out Wonton Soup

Wonton Soup is a favorite take out soup at our home, and I am sure it is at yours too. You can make your own, and I dare say.. make it even better than many take out places! As our final week of #SouperOctober what could be better than making our own version of a take out classic?

How to make wonton soup
Tip Garden is all about creating short cuts for busy people, so I am using frozen wontons from the store, but my son and daughter in law, who have lived in China and Taiwan, make the most delicious homemade wontons and dumplings, would make theirs from scratch. I don't have time, and they don't live here.. so store bought for me!

Jans' Tip: You can buy chicken filled or pork filled wonton's  in the freezer section of most grocery stores, or Asian grocery stores. Either kind will work just fine!

This soup is so comforting! It will warm you heart and soul, and would be great along side an inexpensive noodle bowl for dinner or lunch.
