The Jang Family's Famous Wonton Soup


Wonton Soup is probably my ultimate comfort food. As far back as I can remember, my Ma-Ma (my Chinese Grandma) used to drive up to Kamloops to visit us every summer. I always looked forward to her annual ritual of folding fresh wontons to stock us up for the winter. This recipe has a much bigger yield than what I usually do for recipes, but I always make a big batch of these when I make these, for a few reasons. For one, if you cut it down you’ll end up with leftover meat and water chestnuts, so a big batch helps prevent waste. I also LOVE having these in my freezer for the perfect quick and easy meal on a busy, rainy, night. Or any night for that matter. From my family to yours, Enjoy!
