Table Talk: Wonton

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 899


2 green onions
1/4 pound ground beef
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 dash pepper
12 wonton wrappers
6 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup spinach or 1/2 cup bok choy, leaves halved lengthwise, shredded
1/4 cup shredded carrot


1. Reserve one green onion top for garnish; chop remaining green onions.

2. Combine chopped onion, ground beef, celery, parsley, salt and pepper in a small bowl; mix lightly.

3. Place approximately 1 1/2 tablespoonfuls of ground beef mixture in center of each wonton square.

4. Lightly dampen edges of square with water.

5. Bring together corners; pinch to seal.

6. Set aside.

7. Bring broth to boil in large saucepan; reduce heat to medium.

8. Add 1/2 of wontons; simmer 4 minutes.

9. Remove cooked wontons with slotted spoon; keep warm.

10. Repeat with remaining wontons.

11. Cut reserved green onion top into thin diagonal slices.

12. Add to hot broth with spinach and carrot.

13. Place wonton in soup bowls.

14. Top with broth mixture.

Typically we substitute the ground beef for ground pork. We also experiment with different vegetables, adding mushrooms, water chestnut, cabbage, bean sprout or other things to the soup. Tofu is also a delicious addition. These additions can be added prior to adding wontons, then adding wonton in the last 4 minutes of cooking.
