  2. Return cabbage to bowl and mix well with shrimp, scallions, ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil.

Soup Directions
  1. Once wontons are made, set aside (keeping them covered with moist towel). In a large pot, combine broth, 4 cups water, and 1 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil.
  2. Add wontons, one at a time; return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer until wontons are just cooked through, about 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in green onions, bok choy, vinegar, and sesame oil; season with salt. Serve.

MMmmmmm! This soup is salty, warm and delicious. I swapped pork for shrimp in my wontons and they were delicious. This is the perfect meal for cold fall and winter nights! Let me know what you think in the comments section below.
