I really like my wonton soup infused with thai flavours of lemongrass,chilis and kaffir lime, the exceptional flavour makes up for the lack of MSG which lies in most restaurant wonton soups.

Ingredients
For the Filling
  • 1 lb ground pork or chicken
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 medium sized red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 thumb sized piece of ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 thai bird chili minced, or 1 tsp sambal chili sauce
  • 1 tsp ground lemongrass or paste
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves or 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 Tbs coconut sugar or honey
  • 2 tsp tamari or coconut aminos
For the broth
  • 8 C chicken stock
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 thai bird chili minced, or 1 tsp sambal chili sauce
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • a few handfuls fresh greens-kale,mustard,bok choi, chard...
For wontons
  • one package medium sized wonton wraps
  • 1 egg yolk mixed with 1 Tbs water
Instructions
For the Filling
  1. Add coconut oil to a hot skillet, sautee onion, garlic, ginger until onion is translucent.
  2. Add pork or chicken, chili,lemongrass, kaffir lime,fish sauce,coconut sugar and tamari and cover on medium until pork is fully cooked- about 10 minutes.
  3. Allow filling to cool somewhat before assembling the wontons.
For the broth
  1. Add all ingredients aside from greens to a large pot and bring to a boil.
Assembly
  1. Typically I make a row of wonton wrappers, add a tsp of filling to the centre of each, with a little pastry brush or my finger i use some of the egg yolk and water mix to create a glue around the perimeter, fold them into little diamond shapes and repeat until all the filling is used up.
  2. Make sure to get all the air out when you fold the wraps and they will be less likely to explode.
  3. When you have a sufficient amount of wontons made, approx. 40 you can start adding them to the boiling broth, they only need about 5 minutes to cook, lastly add the greens.
