What is a Subgum Wonton Soup?

Subgum Wonton Soup is a delicious Chinese dish made from wontons and other ingredients, which are deep-fried in oil. The wontons are then served in a broth made with chicken stock and sometimes with other ingredients such as mushrooms, tofu, or spinach.

This soup is easy to make at home because you can use frozen wontons that you can easily thaw in the microwave. You can also use fresh wontons, but they will take longer to cook than frozen ones because they need to be soaked first before cooking.

Tips

  • If you’re in a rush and want to make the soup with less work, use an instant pot!
  • Use homemade wonton wrappers instead of store-bought ones. They’re much more flavorful and don’t cost a dime!
  • Add some chicken broth to the water if you don’t have enough at first so that the noodles are not too dry and hard when finished cooking.
  • Make sure your wontons are small enough before adding them to the soup… this will help prevent soggy wontons!
