Wontons

Soup

Ingredients

  • 3 oz ground pork
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped Napa cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons Chicken Broth
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped scallion greens
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch freshly ground white pepper
  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg, beaten

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced scallion greens
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 5 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Chinese black soy sauce
  • Salt as needed
  • Freshly ground black pepper as needed

Directions

  1. Make the wontons: Combine the pork, cabbage, broth, scallion, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Place ½ teaspoon of the mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper. Brush the edges of the wrapper with beaten egg and fold into a triangle. Twist and press two triangle points together to form a wonton. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers to make about 32 wontons.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the wontons in the boiling water until they float, about 2 minutes. Drain and rinse under cool water. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and set aside.
  3. Make the soup: Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a large wok or a soup pot over medium- high heat. Add the scallion and ginger and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Add the soy sauce and the salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Distribute the wontons evenly between heated bowls (there should be at least 4 per bowl). Ladle the soup over the wontons and serve.
