Hi All, this Soup Sunday I have a bit of a different soup, something that I had never made before but I really enjoyed!- Wonton Soup
Now I would say that this soup is more of an appetizer soup, as there aren’t very many veggies involved, and fairly small servings of meat, but if you wanted to add some more vegetables to the broth (bok choy? maybe) and a few more wontons per serving than you could make a pretty decent meal out of it!
6 cups of chicken broth (I used turkey broth made from boiling the bones of a roast turkey I made the day before)
4 chopped green onions
1/2 a chili pepper, sliced thinly
1/2 pkg of wonton wrappers
1/2 lb of ground pork
1 tsp oriental sesame oil
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp ground ginger
Heat the broth in a pot and add the onions and the chili, allowing it to heat up and incorporate the flavours and spice.
Combine the ground pork with the sesame oil, soy sauce and ginger until it is thoroughly mixed. Then make them into your wontons!
To make the wontons:
First wet your wonton wrapper I did this on a plate with water- refilling from a little bowl:
Then once the edges are sealed I like to fold them over so they are like little packages:
