Wonton Soup; One of my favourite winter meals and being that it snowed for the first time yesterday it seemed fitting! The best part about making wonton soup is that its easy enough that anyone can make it, including my “not-so-kitchen-handy” fiance.
It consists of only 8 ingredients in addition to water, that can all be found at your local grocery store.
What You Will Need
Table and Tea Spoons
Medium Sized Bowl
2 baking sheets ( option )
3 3/4 cups of Vegetable Broth
7 1/2 cups of Water
2 Table Spoon Soya Sauce
1 Cup of Sliced Carrot
1 Package of Ground Pork
2 Tablespoons Soya Sauce
1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Fresh Garlic
1/4 Cups Green Onion
In a large pot add 3 3/4 cup of broth, 7 1/2 cups of water, 2 table spoons of water and 1 cup of sliced Carrot. Let boil on medium heat while prepping the wontons!
Pre-pair a small bowl of warm water, wonton wrappers and a work space big enough to place around 40 wontons, I use our freshly cleaned countertop or 2 baking sheets.
In a medium sized bowl combined, 1 package of ground pork, 1 egg, 2 Tablespoons soya sauce, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, 1/2 teaspoon fresh garlic and 1/4 cup of green onion. Mix together all the ingredients with hands until mixed enough to form little balls.
– Take one wonton wrapper and wet around edges, so it sticks to each other.
– Plop one small sized ball of wonton mix in center of wrapper.
– Pull all edges together to form a seal and press together to make sure the pork isn’t going to fall out of the wrapper.
– Now put all your wontons into the soup at medium to high heat.
– Stir frequently to prevent the wontons sticking together but gently to avoid breakage.
– Cook for 10 – 15 minutes and until all wontons are floating.
Now its time to dish up and enjoy your freshly made wonton soup!
