Wonton Soup


Shredded romaine adds fresh flavor and a little crunch to this Chinese restaurant classic. Look for wonton wrappers in the produce section of the market. For ideas on using leftover wrappers, see the wonton ingredient profile.

3 Tbs. soy sauce

1 3-inch piece fresh ginger, 1 inch finely grated (1 tsp.) and 2 inches thinly sliced
