Pork, Walnut and Sage Wonton Soup


I love wrapping fillings in wonton wrappers and knowing that sage and pork pair well together, thought that adding walnuts to a sage and pork wonton filling might be fun The broth was inspired by a David Tanis "hangover cure" recipe. Tanis sautes garlic and sage in a little oil and then adds water and simmers. I start with chicken broth and skip the saute.

What you will need

10 cups light chicken broth

8 fresh sage leaves torn in half

5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1/2 pound ground pork

1/2 cup walnuts which have been toasted in a 350F oven for 8 to 10 minutes, cooled and then ground

1 large green onion, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons minced fresh sage

2 minced garlic cloves

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

30 to 36 wonton wrappers

Sliced green onion for garnish

Walnut oil for drizzling over the soup
