Easy Wonton Soup #SundaySupper

This past week, Hurricane Sandy ripped through New York and New Jersey and we were left with no power or heating for four days.There were trees uprooted all across our neighborhood and we were extremely lucky that none fell on our house or on our neighbors’!The help and offers from friends and well wishers to come and stay was really touching and we’re very thankful to all our friends for their hospitality in such times.The amount of destruction is massive and my heart goes out to the families who’ve suffered to the extent that’s unimaginable and I only hope that their lives return back to normal sooner than later.

In order to keep us warm I often made soups for lunch and this easy Wonton soup was just perfect since it didn’t require any effort.I used a pack of Chicken Wontons sold at Trader Joe’s.Just added a few veggies with some stock and we had one tasty soup. You can easily make a vegetarian version of this soup by using vegetable wontons and vegetable stock!

  11. Soni, I’m so glad to hear you emerged from the hurricane unscathed. My heart goes out to everyone deeply affected, especially those who have lost loved ones. I love wonton soup – I always keep wontons in my freezer for a quick, delicious meal. Your version is much healthier than mine though with all those vibrant, fresh veggies.

  20. I am so glad to hear that you were able to escape the worse. There was so much destruction. My parents work for a disaster relief non-profit that is assisting in some of the hardest hit areas in New Jersey and they have told me it is far worse to see in person. My dad worked in Mississippi after Katrina and he said it is just as bad as what he saw there. So devastating. But on a happy note your soup looks healthy and hearty, two lovely combinations for a cold winter soup day.

  23. Soni, I am SO glad you and your family are safe and that your power has been restored. What a scary experience. But how nice you were still able to share a delicious soul warming soup…I adore wonton soup and am thrilled to see yours chock full of veggies….mmmmmm.

  24. Soni, First, I am happy you are ok after Sandy. As a Florida native, I have too frequently dealt with storms. I still cannot believe the amount of damage that storm brought on. Heartbreaking….. On a foodie note, this looks amazing. My boyfriend loves soup with dumplings. I will have to make this for him!
