Units Scale
  • 12 wontons (I used Wei-Chuan Pork and Shrimp Wontons) - no need to thaw if frozen
  • 3 ounces thin wonton noodles
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup leeks (about 1 leek), cleaned, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, minced or 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing rice wine
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 baby bok choy, sliced in half vertically
  • Coarse salt to taste
  • Optional garnishes: sliced green onion, chili oil


  1. In a large pot, heat olive oil and sesame oil over medium high heat. Add leeks and carrots and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until somewhat softened.
  2. Add ginger and cook 1 minute, stirring frequently, until fragrant.
  3. Pour rice wine and chicken broth into the pot, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add salt to taste.
  4. Add wontons, noodles, and bok choy to the pot. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until noodles and wontons float to the surface. Remove from heat.
  5. Divide evenly between 2 to 3 bowls. Garnish as desired with sliced green onion and chili oil. Serve immediately.
