Wonton Soup

Wonton Filling

Wrapped wontons befor they are cooked.

Chicken Stock


Wonton soup is one of my favorite soups. It is warming and perfectly tasty, especially in the winter months. It is quite simple to make and can either be a meal starter or an actual meal .
Ingredients:
150 grams of ground pork, ground chicken or ground turkey

1 green onion, chopped

1 tbsp. soy sauce

1/2 tsp. sesame oil

1 small egg

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1 package of wonton wrappers (usually about 24)

6 cups chicken stock
Instructions:

1.To make the wonton filling, mix the first 7 ingredients together a bowl.

2.Using 1 wonton wrapper at a time, moisten any two edges with cold water. Place 2-3 teaspoons of the filling in the centre of the wrapper, and fold over into a triangle.
Firmly press the edges together to seal them. Join the two outer points together and squeeze until they are stuck together.

3. Repeat step 2 until all the wonton wrappers are filled.

4. Bring a pot of water to a boil, and place the wontons into the boiling water. Reduce the heat and let the wontons simmer until they float to the surface. This should take approximately 3-4 minutes.

5. In another pot, bring the chicken stock to a boil, then turn off the heat.

6. Carefully remove the wontons, dividing them into individual bowls.

7. Ladle the chicken stock into each bowl to cover the wontons.

I like to garnish mine with finely chopped green onions and cilantro. I also add a little bit of garlic chili oil for some spice and extra flavor.
