  • 4 ounces gluten free pasta, cooked very well (I used a rice pasta as I wanted the noodles to lose their shape similar to how wonton wrappers do. For Paleo, leave gluten free noodles out)


  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small can water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 inch piece of ginger root, peeled and coarsly chopped
  • 4 green onions
  • 1 Tbs. gluten free soy sauce (tamari) or coconut aminos (use cocnut aminos for Paleo version)

soup base

  • 1 can gluten free chicken broth
  • 2 cans' worth of water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 slices fresh ginger
  • 3 stalks bok choy, chopped


I've been missing wonton soup since going gluten free and it didn't even dawn on me until last night that I could make wonton meatballs and add gluten free noodles to mimic the real thing. Well, my family sure couldn't tell it was gluten free!

1. Put ground pork, egg, water chestnuts, green onion, ginger, and gluten free soy sauce or coconut aminos in a food processor and process until well combined.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
3. With a cookie scoop, scoop meatballs onto foil-lined baking sheets. With a small cookie scoop, you should get 48 mini meatballs.
4. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes or until starting to brown and cooked through.
5. In a large pot, bring broth, water and slices of ginger to a boil; let simmer for about 5 minutes to allow ginger to flavor the broth.
6. Add meatballs, bok choy & noodles to he pot. Let cook for a minute or two or until bok choy turns a dark green.
7. Season to taste with salt & serve!

    Jack doesn’t like ginger, what can I use instead or does it MAKE the soup? I just discovered this dislike 🙁 I might just make it for me if not 🙂

      It does make the soup–start with small amounts. 🙂
