15 Minute Wonton Soup with flavorful lemon ginger broth and a handful of vibrant greens. A fast, easy weeknight dinner!

Ingredients

  • 1 leek, white parts, thinly sliced ( or sub 1 shallot or ½ cup onion)
  • 4 slices ginger (the size of a quarter, leave peels on- or 1 tablespoon ginger paste)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cups chicken broth ( or veggie broth)
  • 1014 wontons ( chicken, shrimp or vegetarian)
  • salt and lemon juice to taste
  • a couple handful of chopped greens- baby spinach, arugula, bok choy, chopped kale
  • garnish options: scallions, cilantro, sesame seeds, chili flakes or sriracha

Instructions

In a medium pot, saute the shallot and ginger in oil, over medium heat, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the broth, cover and bring to a boil. Add the wontons and simmer according to directions on the package ( 3-5 minutes- depending on size) They normally float when cooked through.

Taste the broth and add salt and a squeeze of lemon if you like. I like mine quite lemony, but season to your own taste.

Drop in the greens, cooking until wilted. Spinach will take 45 seconds, kale will take longer.

Divide among two bowls and sprinkle with any of the garnishes.

Notes

More options!

To take this in another direction, flavor-wise, sometimes I’ll skip the lemon and add a drizzle of toasted sesame oil, which gives this an earthy depth which I crave sometimes. You can toss in cubes of tofu ( or left-over chicken) if you like.

Other times I’ll throw in lemongrass and lime leaves, and use lime instead of lemon for more a Thai or Vietnamese twist.  Play around and you will find your perfect version.

It is all about the broth!
