Trader Joe’s Chicken & Vegetable Wonton Soup Review

Trader Joe's Chicken & Vegetable Wonton Soup

When the weather cools down and the seasonal cold starts making its way around, there are few things more satisfying than a toasty bowl of soup. Today, the weather is chilly here in Minnesota, and there’s a cold going around the Freezer Meal Frenzy office, so we’re really excited to be trying the Trader Joe’s Chicken & Vegetable Wonton Soup, which is actually filed under the Trader Ming’s sub-brand.

This soup is incredibly simply to cook up. Simply add some water (don’t forget this part!) and pop it into the microwave for four or five minutes. The hardest part of the whole process is peeling back the film from the top of the bowl, because it’s glue on pretty relentlessly. We struggled a little bit with this step in the process.

The broth is a really comforting chicken-infused affair with hints of onion and white and black pepper. It will certainly warm your belly on a cold day.

There’s also a blend of veggies in here, including carrots, leeks, snap peas, and green onions. The veggie portion is weighed heavily in favor of the carrots, which is a good thing because they have a fresh flavor and a firm crispness, even when soaked in broth. There isn’t a whole lot of green onion here, but it’s really potent. If you get a bite of green onion, you definitely won’t be able to ignore it.

Of course, the main event here is the wontons, and they’re delicious. Inside each one you’ll find a generous portion of ground chicken and just a little bit of cabbage to round out the flavor. They’re really satisfying to bit into, and all six of our wontons were fully intact when we took this out of the microwave — there were no broken-open pieces floating around in the broth.

Our batch of soup had six wontons in it, which is probably close to average for this meal. We would have loved just a few more in the bowl, but what’s here is absolutely delicious.

If you’re worried about calories, you’ll be happy to know that this is a lean bowl of soup, at just 220 calories (and only 30 from fat). If you’re watching your sodium, though, you’ll need to exercise a bit more caution. You’re looking at 1,060 mg of sodium, which is a lot even for a frozen food.

The Trader Joe’s Chicken & Vegetable Wonton Soup is the perfect treat for a chilly afternoon. While we would have enjoyed a slightly larger quantity of wontons, the six we found in our soup were absolutely perfect. We’ll definitely be keeping more of this soup in our freezer for the cold-weather days ahead of us.

Totally agree with article – soup is great! However, it’s been pulled from shelves now for several months due to “quality concerns”.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
