Easy Pork Wonton Soup

You’ve got me wonton some more!!

This meal is perfect If you want to make it ahead of time for a later use. The wontons may be pre made and kept in the freezer for up to 4-6 months if it is stored properly. I like to make fresh soup for the wontons, but store-bought chicken or vegetable stock works as well. Just add fresh ginger, onions and soy sauce to the stock and boil for 30 minutes. The stock can also be stored in the freezer and thawed when you are ready to use it.⁣⁣⁣
