This keto wonton soup will leaving you wondering why you ever needed the wonton wrappers in the first place! Making low carb Chinese food recipes can be a little tricky. Many traditional asian inspired dishes contain sugar, soy, gluten, as well as other things I typically try to avoid. But all it takes is a little creativity and a willingness to cook your own food and you can have a deliciously remarkable low carb wonton soup. I am a huge fan of wonton soup, especially keto wonton soup. It is so comforting. While I still miss the flavor and texture of those delicious little dumplings, this soup is a great substitution. The meatballs are plump, juicy and incredibly flavorful.
