Wonton Soup

I decided to make some Wonton Soup the other day when I made some crab rangoons. I made the wontons with ground pork but you could use ground chicken or ground shrimp.

These wontons are easier to make than you might think.

Delicious pork filled dumplings in chicken broth with pea pods and green onions.
  • Dumplings
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon ginger grated
  • 3 green onions finely chopped
  • 2 finely chopped garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • wonton wrappers (I used square)
  • salt and pepper
  • Soup base
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • pea pods
  • 2 green onions - sliced
  • 1 cup thinly cut celery on the bias
  1. Put all of the dumpling ingredients except the wrappers in a bowl. Mix well to combine. Take a teaspoon of the filling on place it on the center of the wonton wrapper. Moisten the edges. Fold over to make a triangle. Make sure the edges are tightly closed. Take the 2 points and moisten with water. Pinch together to form the wontons.
  2. Bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the wontons. in 5 minutes add the celery and julienned pea pods. Cook until wontons are tender, about 5 more minutes.
  3. Serve and sprinkle with green onions.

Note: This recipe makes about double of the wontons that you need for the soup. You can cook them all or freeze for later. They will also make a good pan fried dumpling.
