Equipment needed to make this Quick Keto Thai Wonton Soup

Thai Wonton Soup Ingredients

Wonton Soup Broth

  • Water
  • Better than Bullion Base – Chicken stock – I SWEAR by this stuff and use Better than Bullion in all dishes that call for chicken stock. 
    All flavors (beef, pork, vegetable, garlic, chili, lobster, fish, ham, mushroom, turkey, sauteed onion, etc.) are concentrated flavors.  
  • Soy sauce
  • Sesame seed oil

Wonton Soup Meatballs

  • Sausage (I always use Jimmy Dean, this may sound strange but trust me)
  • Green onion (I’m cheap and buy dehydrated green onion, so I never worry about wasting fresh green onions)
  • Dried parsley (use fresh if you have it, I always used dried)
  • Soy sauce
  • Ginger powder
  • Black pepper
  • Minced garlic
  • Egg

Wonton Soup Add-Ins

  • Fresh mushrooms (I use canned or fresh mushrooms, depending on what I have on hand)
  • Cabbage or bok choy (bok choy will taste more authentic, but cabbage tastes good)
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion (Optional – I use it when I have leftovers available)
  • Green onions

How to Make Quick Thai Wonton Soup 

In a large soup pot, combine all the wonton soup broth ingredients.  Bring to a boil.

While broth is coming to a boil, put all meatball ingredients into a medium-sized mixing bowl.

With a clean hand, combine all the sausage wonton soup meatball ingredients.

When Thai Wonton Soup broth is up to a boil, drop teaspoonfuls of the sausage mixture into the boiling broth.

I use two spoons—one to scoop the mixture and another spoon to push the mixture off the first spoon.

It is going to seem like A LOT of meatballs.  Just keep repeating the process until all meatballs are in the broth.  Do NOT stir for 3-4 minutes, or the wonton meatballs may fall apart. 

Cook the meatballs in the boiling broth for six or seven minutes.  If you made your meatballs on the larger side, you might need to add additional cooking time.

While the meatballs cook, prepare the add-ins.  I thinly sliced some leftover red onion and sliced 1/4 a head of cabbage.

Thai Wonton Soup Add-Ins

I used canned mushrooms.  I usually use freshly sliced mushrooms, but I’m a HUGE fan of using what I have and not making extra trips to the grocery store, so drained canned mushrooms are what I used.

Add in the veggies after meatballs have boiled in the Thai Wonton Soup broth for at least six minutes.

Continue to boil and cook vegetables until they are tender-crisp 2-4 minutes.

Taste broth for seasoning.  I usually have to add a little more soy sauce.
