What Is Wonton Soup
Wonton soup is a Chinese soup that is usually made with salty chicken broth and filled with wontons.
Wontons are soft noodles folded around spiced meat – usually beef, chicken, or pork. You might see some types of wonton soup with vegetables in it. The most common types of veggies in this soup are mushrooms and green onions.
Are Wonton Wrappers Keto
Unfortunately, wonton wrappers are just not keto-friendly. There are ways that you can make low-carb wonton wrappers.
For the sake of time, I decided that the quickest and easiest method is to just make naked wontons.
Yup! Instead of worrying about the carbs in a wonton wrapper, I just made some low-carb pork meatballs. They taste just like traditional wonton filling!

The broth is what sets this soup apart from any other kind. The spicy chili garlic sauce mingles with salty sesame oil and the bold umami flavors from soy sauce round it out perfectly.
You can add your favorite garnish – like green onions. I used bok choy because it is a low-carb vegetable that has an unmistakable Asian flair.
This soup is perfect for meal prep. The soup will last at least 5 days without any change in taste or texture. I like to store my leftover soup in a mason jar. That way, I just have to remove the lid and heat it up in the microwave. It’s the easiest meal prep ever!
Naked Wonton Soup
This soup is super-easy to make! It’s a lot easier than making your own wonton wrappers.
Since the pork meatballs cook in the broth, you don’t have to worry about making them separately. The pork meatballs also have a distinct flavor that is perfect in this soup. The ginger paste gives it a bold bite and green onions make it taste earthy and slightly sweet.
The egg is important because it binds the meatballs together. You don’t need any kind of pork rinds or breadcrumbs in these meatballs, they are perfect without them.
Low-Carb Substitute For Wonton Wrappers
If you really want wonton wrappers, there are quite a few low-carb ones that you can buy.
Coconut wrappers are a popular option. You can even make your own with a combination of coconut and almond flour and egg and water.
What To Eat With Wonton Soup
Since this is a type of Chinese food, make your favorite sides to go with it! Try it with some bang bang cauliflower, and cauliflower fried rice. For the main course, you can make either egg roll in a bowl or keto moo shu pork.
