Disclaimer: I suck really bad at wrapping wontons, and you probably do too. Nothing personal…it’s just that, based on my experience wrapping wontons for this soup, I’ve determined that it’s something most people suck at. So there’s a high statistical probability you are one of those people :) Don't give up!
For the Wontons
4 oz. shiitake mushrooms
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
1 tbsp. soy sauce
½ tsp. sesame oil
½ tsp. liquid smoke (optional)
1 scallion, finely chopped
about 16 wonton wrappers
For the Wonton Soup
½ tbsp. vegetable oil
½ tsp. sesame oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
5 cups vegetable broth
1 tbsp. rice vinegar
2 cups shredded napa cabbage
2 scallions, chopped
salt to taste
Make the Wontons
Clean shiitake mushrooms and remove stems. Finely dice caps and place in a medium bowl. Stir in garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, liquid smoke, if using, and scallion.
Fill a small bowl with water. Arrange a wonton wrapper on work surface. Place about 1 teaspoon of filling in center. Dip fingers in water and moisten edges of wonton wrapper. Fold in half, over filling, diagonally, to create a triangle. Press edges together to seal. Draw side corners of wrapper inward, join and press together to seal, creating a loop. Repeat until all filling and wrappers are used.
Make the Wonton Soup
Place vegetable and sesame oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger. Sauté for 1 minute. Add broth and bring to a boil. Add wontons and lower heat to a simmer. Allow to simmer until wontons float, about 5 mintues. Stir in vinegar, napa cabbage and salt to taste. Remove from heat.
Ladle into bowls and top with scallions.
My mouth is actually watering! this soundsGREAT!
The broth sounds really great for a sore throat or something. Better than boring old veggie soup.
This looks so light and yummy.
Just looking at this photo warms me up inside!
Wonton soup is one of those things that I never crave until I see a picture of it. And here I am.
