  • Instant pot


  • 10-12 frozen vegetable wontons or vegetable momos
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable or any cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoon Better than bouillon vegetable broth paste
  • ¼ red onion sliced
  • 2-3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 inch ginger sliced
  • 1 star anise and 2 cloves
  • ½ teaspoon whole coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium GF soy sauce
  • ½ tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • Baby bokchoy or spinach to serve
  • Sliced green onions to serve
  • Salt + pepper to taste


  • 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 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 to the 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.


  • 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.
