Instant Pot Wonton Soup (Vegan)

by Sophie

Instant Pot Wonton Soup is a quick family-friendly meal that takes less than 30-minutes to come together. This healthy and quick family friendly dinner uses simple, everyday kitchen ingredients.

Thanks to my pre-made momo dumplings, this soup doesn’t need much work. But if you don’t have some Chinese dumplings, feel free to use store bought wontons. This soul warming soup is fantastic for a busy weeknight or as a starter.  Presenting my instant pot Chinese wonton soup. 

Instant Pot has a number of cooking modes and soup is one of them. I love the instant pot soups a lot more than stove versions.


That’s because the simmering mode infuses flavors so well and together, resulting in a more flavorful soup. I have this instant pot asparagus soup and this kala Chana soup, which are popular among my readers. For those looking for more classic recipes, I have this broccoli cheddar soup and even this instant pot cauliflower soup

What is Instant Pot Wonton Soup?

Wonton soup

This soup is more broth-like, with a mild ginger and soy flavor. I make this broth in a number of ways. However, I love this one a lot more than other versions. This wonton soup was invented because of my instant pot dumpling momos or dimsums. Since I didn’t have to spend time in finding the wontons or Chinese dumplings, it became very easy to make this soup. 

Thanks to the mild flavor, my kiddos love this soup very much. But I like to add a little bit of chili oil to my wonton soup, sometimes. In this chilly weather, this Instant Pot wonton soup is a perfect comfort dish.

Instant Pot wonton soup Ingredients:

For this soup, you will need

10-12 frozen vegetable wontons or vegetable momos, 1 tsp vegetable or any cooking oil, 2 tbsp Better than bouillon vegetable broth paste, 1/4 red onion sliced, 2-3 garlic cloves chopped, 1 inch ginger sliced, 1 star anise and 2 cloves, 1/2 tsp whole coriander seeds, 1 tbsp low sodium GF soy sauce, 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar, Baby bokchoy or spinach to serve, Sliced green onions to serve, Salt + pepper to taste

How to Make Instant Pot Wonton Soup?

Dice the green onion and keep the white part and green part separately. 

Mince the garlic and slice the ginger. Set the Instant Pot to saute mode and add about the oil.

Add the sliced red onion, white parts of the green onions, whole spices, ginger and garlic. Allow the veggies caramelize a bit.

Now add the water and bouillon paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and salt.

Set the Instant Pot to pressure cook for 2 minutes.Wait for five minutes after the beep and release pressure carefully.

Discard the cooked veggies using a strainer.Now add the wontons or dumplings and adjust salt and pepper if necessary.

Now set the instant pot in soup mode for 3-minutes.

After the natural pressure release, add the chopped green onions, spinach or bokchoy and chili oil. Serve the Instant Pot wonton soup immediately.

Notes

  • When the wontons are in the broth, they soak more broth. If you are storing the soup, take out the wontons from the soup and store the broth separately. 
  • Both frozen wontons and homemade dumplings cook in the same time. However, if you are using mini fresh wontons, it will take a just a minute to cook in the boiling broth.
  • Sometimes, I add noodles in my wonton soup as well. You may cook rice noodles in the broth or in boiling water and serve with the soup.
