Simple Wonton Soup 🍜

It’s cold outside!❄ Brr, I have no idea why, but here in Montreal we have continuously -30C!!! Yeah you hear me. And in this horribly cold temperature, we also get a snow. I think our mother nature is going crazy, because I have seen some posts on Facebook, that in Montreal is colder then on Mars or even North Pole 😂❄

So, when it’s this extremely cold, I can think of one perfect soup to reheat your body and soul. Homemade won-ton soup with ginger, lemongrass and brown mushrooms will reheat you in a minute.I am sure you can already smell that amazing chicken broth cooking together with lemongrass. And it’s fairly easy to make, once you have your family under the weather, you don’t wait and get this ready in no time.

Wonton would be wonton withou the little wonton dumplings, so you either are in a hurry like I am and you grab a bag of wontons in a grocery store or you take your time and prepare it yourself. Another alternative is to toss some Chinese noodles in the soup and you get it perfectly covered, because when you don’t feel well, simple chicken stock with some vegetables is go as well. So let’s see the recipe for 4:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 2 stalk lemongrass
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 handful fresh wild or brown mushrooms, roughly chopped

Wonton dumplings

  • ½ cup boneless chicken
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce (optional)
  • 1 packet round wonton wrappers

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1.  Place your chicken stock into a large pot over a medium to high heat.
  2.  Add sticks of  lemongrass, spring onions, ginger, and mushrooms.
  3. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. If you have a store bought wonton dumplings, follow the instructions on the bag.
  5. If you want to make homemade wonton dumplings, here is how to do it:
  6. To make the filling for the wonton dumplings, place the raw chicken, ginger, spring onions and fish sauce into a food processor. Process well.
  7. On a clean, dry working surface, spread out your wonton wrappers. Pour a little water into a bowl for dipping your fingers. Place 1 teaspoon of filling into the middle of each wrapper and using your fingers, wet the outer edges (this will make it stick). Fold up the edges over the filling to a central point at the top, twisting slightly to seal.
  8. Add the wonton dumplings to the chicken broth. Boil for about 8 minutes or until they are floating.
  9. To serve, pour it into your favorite bowls and garnish with fresh spring onions.
