Wonton Soup

All the flavours that you love from a bowl of won ton soup, without the wrappers.

In my pre-keto days, a visit to a Chinese restaurant wasn’t complete without a bowl of wonton soup. My love for this soup was so great, at times I chose to indulge in a second bowl as a dessert course.

I don’t go into many Chinese restaurants these days, but Chinese home cooking within the keto world is a thing. Unwrapped Wonton Soup is a simple homemade keto fix for everybody’s favourite Chinese soup.
