Takeaway wonton soup is one of my favorite meals when I am looking for something warm and comforting. The thought of making wonton soup always seemed out of reach, like how do you even make wontons?! Do not fret, I found a recipe from Delish that didn’t seem too difficult, so I added a little bit of a flair to it, and BOOM easy peasy wonton soup that you can make at home. Making the wontons did take some focus and time, but I found it to be a very mindful task. Serve warm and enjoy.
- 2/3 lb Ground Pork
- 2 TSP Soy Sauce
- 2 TSP Chives, Thinly sliced
- 1 TSP Rice Wine Vinegar
- 1 TSP Grated Ginger
- 1 Garlic Clove, minced
- 1/2 TSP Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
- 1/2 TSP Sesame Oil
- 1 Package Square Wonton Wrappers
- 1/4 Cup Water
For the Broth:
- 6 Cups Chicken Broth
- 3″ Piece of Peeled Ginger
- 2 TSP Soy Sauce
- 2 Garlic Cloves, Smashed
- 1/4 TSP Sesame Oil
- 2 TBSP Sliced Green Onions
- 1 Bundle of Bok Choy, Chopped
- 1 Cup Mushrooms, Sliced
- 1 Handful of Bean Sprouts
Lets Get Cooking
In a large stockpot bring together all of the broth ingredients except the bok choy and the bean sprouts. Bring up to a boil and then simmer on low for 10 minutes. Remove the garlic and ginger and bring back up to a boil.
While the broth is coming together, combine pork + soy sauce + chives + vinegar + ginger + garlic + red pepper flakes + sesame oil in a large bowl.
On a clean dry surface bring out your wonton wrappers. Keep a bowl of water close by and wet the edges of the wonton wrapper with water. Place about 1/2 TBSP of the pork filling into the center of the wonton wrapper. Fold the wonton diagonally in half to make a triangle, seal the edges. Fold the two bottom corners in on each other and press again to seal. Repeat on all wrappers. Use extra water if needed to seal.
Bring a pot of water up to boiling and place in a few wontons at a time. These cook fast so be sure to watch them. When they float to the top remove them from the water. It is a small amount of meat so it will cook through and it will also continue to cook in the hot broth.
Once all the wontons are cooked, add the chopped bok choy and bean sprouts into the broth and simmer for about 5 minutes.
When you’re ready to eat. Place 3 wontons in a bowl and pour the hot broth over top.
