Soup Sunday: Wonton Soup


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!

Wonton Soup

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 you add your meat about 1 tsp (very small amount) don’t overstuff!!:
Then you fold it over on the diagonal and seal the edges by rubbing them down:

Then once the edges are sealed I like to fold them over so they are like little packages:

Keep going until you have a heap of them- although don’t actually pile them all together like I did because they will all stick together!
Then drop them in a pot of boiling water- when they float they are done and you can take them out!
 (as you can see there is a quiche in the background because someone didn’t think that this soup would be enough for their dinner!)
I like to stir them just a little so that they don’t stick to the bottom, but they only take a couple of minutes!

Then you can add them to your soup. I like to portion off the wontons into bowl and then ladle the broth over top.

So tasty!
mmmmmmmmm…
I hope everyone had a wonderfully delicious Sunday like I did! – and I will be back soon with more Christmas posts!
Happy Sunday everyone!
