Easy Wonton Noodle Soup (the non-traditional way)

Crafting a traditional hearty bowl of wonton noodle soup at home can take some time, so this is my version of wonton noodle soup – the non-traditional way. Today, I will be sharing a quick and easy wonton noodle soup recipe by using frozen wontons and dry Chinese noodles that you can find in your local Asian grocery store.

Note: To make a larger portion, simply double the amount of ingredients.

Ingredients (1 serving):

1 dry Chinese wheat noodles
3-4 pieces of frozen wontons (You can add more if you like)

Soup Broth Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup of hot water for soup
1/2 tsp of chicken stock powder
1/2 tsp of soy sauce
1/2 tsp of sesame
a pinch of salt
a pinch of pepper

Note: If you prefer not to use soup stock powder, you can also use any soup broth that you have. Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup broth of your choice
1 smashed garlic
1 slice of ginger
1/2 tsp of soy sauce
1/2 tsp of sesame oil 

Optional Toppings:

Chopped green onion (scallions)
Baby bok choy
Gai Lan

In a small pot boil some water for your noodles. While the water is coming to a boil, prepare the toppings – chopped green onions, and gai lan. Once boiled, add in the noodles and cook it according to the instruction on the package. The noodles I’m using are wheat noodles (see image below on the right).
