Trader Joe’s – Chicken & Vegetable Wonton Soup – Food Review

With cold, or at least cool, weather just around the corner, soup is in season.  This is a surprisingly good soup for those kinds of days, or really any kind of day.

The broth for this soup is very nice. There’s a slight sweetness to the broth, but also a bit of rebellion from green onions. As you work your way to the bottom of the bowl, where the white and black pepper settle out, the broth becomes more adventuresome. The broth has a medium consistency.

The wontons (dumplings) in the soup contain a chicken-based filling. While not as flavorful as the broth, the wonton filling is still good with noticeable vegetables interspersed throughout.  If you can manage to cut a wonton in half, letting some broth seep in, the filling is even better. The package contains a caution to, cook thoroughly. If I had to guess, the soup is not precooked. It took the full five minutes in the microwave to reach the required 165 degrees.

Trader Joe’s Spring Onion Rice Noodle Soup Bowl – Food Review


For all practical purposes this is just about the same as TJ’s Garlic Rice Noodle Soup Bowl.   The major differences are; this one has a little less sodium (salt), but still 1250 mg per bowl, and lacked a “vegetable packet”.  Since the label says there’s a vegetable packet (spring onions) in the kit, and since mine was missing, I should call this Spring Onion-less Soup Bowl.  But I won’t quibble.

Vegetarian French Onion Soup – recipe


What’s not vegetable about an onion?  There are no French in the soup.  I hope not?  So why a special version for onion soup?
