Wonton Soup with Shrimp and Rice Noodles - a fast 10 minute Asian soup recipe

I would be lying if I said I only crave soup during the cold winter months because truth be told, I make and eat soup all year round. Especially ethnic soups like Chicken Tortilla Soup with Hominy, Vietnamese Shrimp Pho and my mom’s famous Lebanese Lemony Chicken Soup with Spinach.

Which is the perfect tie-in to Week 2 of the Healthy New Year 6-Week Challenge because this week I am challenging all of you to “Go Ethnic!” and breakout of your spice rut in the kitchen! To help, Dara and I have partnered with Gourmet Garden who has created this Flavor Pairing Guide to inspire you at mealtime.

Gourmet Garden Herbs

Personally, I’m a huge fan of their fresh ginger, chili paste and garlic tubes which make putting together an Asian-inspired meal a breeze. As a bonus, you avoid food waste because the refrigerated tubes keep herbs fresher, longer. If you’ve ever reached in your fridge for ginger to find a dried out stick, you’ll know how exciting this is.

If you love wonton soup but have never tried making it at home, I’m here to tell you that this soup comes together in 10 minutes or less. Full of fresh ginger, toasted sesame oil and plenty of plump shrimp and wontons, it is the ultimate meal-in-a-bowl.

Your soup spoon is waiting.

    This looks wonderful, is there a sub for the shrimp, have a couple of family members that have seafood allergies. Going to pick up the Gourmet Garden spices if they are sold here in SW Florida.

      You could use any meat! Shredded chicken works great!

    This recipe looked good until I saw the salt content.

      Hi Sandy – You can easily reduce the salt content by reducing the amount of soy sauce or using homemade chicken stock. :) You should try it – it’s so good!

        I’ll have to try it with unsalted broth. It does look really good.

    Spring/summer soup was pretty much mandatory when I had a CSA membership and worked in an overly-air-conditioned office :)

    Gorrmet Garden’s products are the BOMB! I have used a whole tube of their basil in my family pasta sauce recipe. I also love the basil spread on toast with an over hard egg! No butter needed! So versatile and they last longer in the fridge than the fresh stuff!

    I love Gourmet Garden!! They make cooking so much easier, especially in the winter when organic fresh herbs are harder to come by. I always have at least a couple tubes in my fridge, and love their Lightly Dried line too. This soup looks fabulous, Liz!

      I haven’t been using the lightly dried line as long but I am so excited about it!! Thanks Amelia!

    This is exactly the kind of soup that I can make over and over again. The flavors are perfect for our Go Ethnic theme this week, and you can’t beat the Gourmet Garden products to help with cooking inspiration.

      I LOVE this! I use fresh herbs and sub the chicken broth with TJ’s miso broth and a seafood hot pot broth packet. I add some lemon, lime, and sprouts to the toppings and the flavor is so bright and authentic! I also do not use the rice noodles, just the dumplings. Using both absorbed all the liquid in my pot. Thank you!

        YES That sounds so good Crisala!!!
