Why You’ll Love This Vegan Wonton Soup

Is this soup hearty and filling enough for a meal?

You bet! The protein-packed wontons and nourishing veggie broth make this soup incredibly satisfying and substantial. I like to serve it as a main meal because the stuffed wontons are so filling on their own. One big steaming bowl keeps me feeling pleasantly full and fueled for hours, not hungry at all! The wontons provide a good protein punch while the broth is packed with vitamins and minerals from the veggies.

How difficult is it to make the wontons?

Folding the wontons does take some time and patience, especially your first try, but I promise it gets easier with practice! I find it relaxing to assemble them while listening to an audiobook or podcast to keep me company. The key is moistening the edges well before sealing them into little bundles. Don’t worry if they look a little messy at first, they’ll still taste amazing! I recommend starting with just a small batch as you get the hang of the folding techniques.

What makes the broth so flavorful?

The fresh ginger and garlic really give the broth a major flavor boost! They add aromatic depth and brightness. The soy sauce lends a savory, salty richness while the sesame oil provides a lovely nutty, toasted taste. Those Asian flavors meld together in the most comforting way. You get sweetness from the ginger, heat from the garlic, savoriness from the soy, and this irresistible toasted sesame aroma.

Can I make this soup gluten-free?

For sure! You can find gluten-free vegan wonton wrappers at most grocery stores now which makes this soup totally gluten-free friendly. Just double check the soy sauce is GF certified too. I’ve made this soup gluten-free many times and it tastes exactly the same – warm, aromatic and delicious. No compromises here!

Is this soup spicy?

Not at all! This soup gets its flavor from the garlic, ginger, green onions and soy sauce, but there is no heat or chili spices. The flavors are more bright, aromatic and savory rather than spicy. That said, you could absolutely add sriracha, chili oil or red pepper flakes to give it some kick if you like! I provide them on the side so people can amp up the heat to their personal taste.

Prep Time: 30 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 40 mins


  • 24 vegan wonton wrappers
  • 1 cup textured vegetable protein
  • 1⁄4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 4 cups vegetable broth


  1. Make the filling: In a bowl, mix together the TVP, green onions, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil until combined.
  2. Assemble the wontons: Lay a wonton wrapper on a flat surface and place 1 teaspoon of filling in the center. Wet the edges with water and fold the wrapper diagonally to form a triangle, pressing out any air. Pinch the edges to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  3. Make the broth: In a large pot, bring the vegetable broth to a simmer. Add the wontons and cook for 4-5 minutes until they float to the top and the filling is hot.
  4. Serve: Ladle the wonton soup into bowls, garnishing with green onions. Enjoy this comforting soup!

Cooking Tips:

  • Look for vegan wonton wrappers near the tofu at the grocery store or in the freezer section.
  • To make the folding easier, cover the wonton wrappers with a damp paper towel while working.
  • For a shortcut, you can use store-bought vegan broth instead of making your own vegetable broth.
  • Freeze any unused wontons for up to 3 months. Thaw before adding to soup.
  • Add bok choy, mushrooms, or tofu for extra veggies and protein.
