There’s nothing more depressing than when you’re craving your favorite food, but are unable to find a restaurant conveniently located close enough to get your desperate hands on it. Wonton soup is one of the meals you may find yourself dreaming of, but just can’t seem to find the right place to order it.
Not to worry, we’ve got you covered with not only an extremely satisfying wonton soup recipe, but a healthier version with less sodium than its restaurant-made counterpart. Once you get the hang of creating each little wonton, you’ll find it to be super fun and easy to make!
P.S. We chose mushrooms and carrots as the main veggie filler, but feel free to use any veggies of your choice. (The key to successfully making wontons, is making sure the filling is minced or finely chopped. So get those knives out!)
Vegetarian Wonton Soup
1 package egg or vegan wonton wrappers
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth
3 ounces mushrooms of choice, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced and separated in half
2 ounces shredded carrot
3 green onions, chopped and separated in half
2 teaspoons of grated ginger, separated in half
3 tablespoons of soy sauce, separated in 1 tablespoon and 2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
side bowl of water
1. In a bowl, mix half of minced garlic (approximately 2 cloves) with shredded carrots and mushrooms, 1 tablespoon grated ginger, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, half of the chopped green onion (approximately 1.5 onion chopped), sesame oil. Mix very well together.
2. Take one wonton wrapper and lay out in diamond shape. Dip you finger in small bowl of water to wet the perimeter of wrapper. Fill the wrapper with a small scoop of veggie mixture, then fold the bottom corner to meet the top corner, and seal all edges together. Then take the left and right sides of the triangle and connect and seal them towards each other, creating a loop. Repeat this process with each wonton until you’ve used up the veggie mixture.
3. In a pot, bring the vegetable broth to a boil, and add the remaining garlic and ginger.
4. Toss in the wontons in the broth, then reduce heat and let simmer until the wontons start floating to top, about 5-7 minutes.
5. Turn off heat and add the remaining soy sauce and rice vinegar. Garnish with remaining green onion and serve.
