Wonton Soup

 

If there is anything that can get me out from under my super cozy, down comforter on a cold day… it’s a bowl of this Wonton Soup. Hearty little wontons filled with flavorful pork, in a steaming bowl of rich broth – this is a bowl that will warm your entire body. And maybe, just maybe… you’ll forget how cold it is outside. Notes: If you're looking for an easier way to wrap your wontons - place the filling in the center, wet the edges, fold into a triangle, and then take the two bottom corners of the triangle and pinch to seal. If you have leftover wonton wrappers, I love making wonton crisps. Simply heat 1/2 inch of vegetable or corn oil in a pan and cut the wonton squares into strips. To see if your oil is hot enough, try one test strip - if it bubbles up right away, the oil is ready. Working in batches, fry the wonton strips. Cook until light brown (less than a minute) and remove with a spider or slotted spoon. Allow to drain on a plate lined with a paper towel. Serve with the soup.
