I wanted to so a version of my noodle soup but I had some wonton wrappers I had bought.... So I decided I'd attempt wontons. Oh. My. Goddess. So worth the effort. And a lot easier than I thought...
Serves 8 -10
- 30 wonton wrappers (typically this is the amount in a single pack)
- 8 ounces/250-300g pork sirloin
- 2 green onions
- 2 tsp grated ginger
- 2 tsp hoisin sauce
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 6 cups chicken broth, low sodium
- 6 cups water
- 4 tbsp soy sauce
- 4 tbsp hoisin sauce
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- 2 tbsp grated ginger
- 3 eggs, beaten
- Your choice! But I used the following
- 3 carrots, thinly sliced
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1/4 green cabbage thinly sliced
- 3 ribs celery, thinly sliced
- 3 cups bean sprouts
- Either finely chop all the ingredients for the wontons or put them in the food processor and process until well blended
- Prepare a tray or baking sheet with a dusting of cornstarch and have a damp cloth or paper towel on hand. Put some water in a small bowl
- Take a wonton wrapper out of the package and close the package so the wrappers don't dry out.
- Put 1 tsp of the pork mix in the centre of the wrapper
- Dip you finger in the water and wipe it along the edge of the wonton wrapper.
- Fold the wrapper in half and press close, making sure there is no air trapped inside
- Place on the tray and cover with the damp cloth.
- Repeat until they are all done!
- Refrigerate until ready to toss in the soup
- Heat all the soup base ingredients together and bring to a boil
- Add in your veggies and simmer until the veggies are just tender
- Add in your wontons and simmer for 3 minutes.
The finished product with bean sprouts, celery, carrots, cabbage, green onions and a couple of beaten eggs.
