That looks delicious! I remember helping my mom make wonton when I was a kid. I haven't had wonton soup for a long time. Your post made me want to have some :-)

Writing recipes wake up my cooking. I haven't touch wonton for a year or two. Put on some weight writing recipes lately. I eat too much...
