Wonton Soup and Mini Egg Rolls

Wonton Soup and Mini Egg Rolls

So easy to follow and delicious, this wonton soup recipe will serve you for years to come. The wontons can be frozen for quick and easy meals during the week, or for a lazy weekend morning brunch.

 

These homemade egg rolls are filled with pork and vegetables, all wrapped up and fried to crispy perfection.

 

Simple Wonton Soup

This simple wonton soup recipe is so delicious and easy to follow. The wontons can be frozen, boiled and added to stock to make wonton soup any time of day

 

Ingredients

  • 10 oz. baby bok choy or similar green vegetable (280g)
  • 8 oz. ground pork (225g)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil (plus more for the stock)
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons Shaoxing wine
  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 6 cups chicken stock (about 1.5 liters)
  • 1 scallion (chopped)

Instructions

    • Start by thoroughly washing the vegetables. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and blanch the vegetables just until wilted, about 60-90 seconds. Drain and rinse in cold water.
    • Grab a good clump of veg and carefully squeeze out as much water as you can. Very finely chop the vegetables (you can also speed up the process by throwing them in the food processor). Repeat until all the vegetables are chopped.
    • In a medium bowl, add the finely chopped vegetables, ground pork, 2 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil, pinch of white pepper, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1-2 tablespoons Shaoxing wine. Mix very thoroughly until the mixture is totally emulsified—almost like a paste.
    • Now it’s time to assemble! Fill a small bowl with water. Grab a wrapper and use your finger to moisten the edges of the wrapper. Add a little over a teaspoon of filling to the middle. Fold the wrapper in half and press the two sides together so you get a firm seal.
    • Hold the bottom two corners of the little rectangle you just made (the side where the filling is) and bring the two corners together. You can use a bit of water to make sure they stick. And that’s it!
    • At this point, you can cook (boil) and taste a couple of wontons and adjust the seasoning of your filling to taste––you can always add a little more Shaoxing wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and/or white pepper to your liking.
    • Once you’re happy with the flavor of the filling, keep assembling until all the filling is gone. Place the wontons on a baking sheet or plate lined with parchment paper, and make sure they are not touching (this will prevent sticking).
    • If you’d like to freeze your wontons right away, you can cover the wontons with plastic wrap, put the baking sheet/plate into the freezer, and transfer them to freezer bags once they’re frozen. They’ll keep for a couple of months in the freezer, and be ready for wonton soup whenever you want it.
    • To make the soup, heat your chicken stock to a simmer and add 2-3 teaspoons sesame oil and white pepper and salt to taste.
    • Bring a separate pot of water to a boil. Carefully add the wontons one at a time to the pot. Pick up the pot and use a swirling, twisting motion to keep the pot moving and prevent the wontons from sticking to the bottom. If they do stick, don’t worry, They should come free once they’re cooked. Once they’re floating, boil them for another 1-2 minutes. Take care not to overcook them – mushy wontons are a sin! Remove the wontons with a slotted spoon and put them in bowls.
    • Pour the soup over the wontons and garnish with scallions. Serve!

Notes

Wontons can be frozen for use later. Lay them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper so they aren’t touching, and put the baking sheet in the freezer. Once they’re frozen, transfer them to a freezer bag and freeze for up to two months.

Mini Egg Rolls

You probably heard about Easter egg roll but have you heard of mini egg rolls? well it’s an side dish invented by the American-Chinese influenced Indian / Pakistani spring rolls which are very big side dish served in all sorts of ceremonies and events. Mini egg rolls are prepared exactly the same way as the spring rolls. There is not much history to it but that doesn’t mean the taste is not there.

The other day, I decided to make Chicken Spring Rolls at home.  I love spring rolls, but I often find them quite greasy and oily.  That’s because they are not fried correctly, so they become soggy and absorb too much oil. 

This home-made version is so much better.  They come out crunchy and not oily at all.  And the filling is delicious too.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, finely chopped (about 2 Tbsp.)
  • 2 scallions, white parts only, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups loosely packed packaged slaw mix (about 10 oz.)
  • 2 cups bean sprouts (about 4 oz.)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 12 square egg roll wrappers, thawed if frozen

 

How to Make It

  • Step 1
    Warm 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, ginger and scallions. Sauté until fragrant but not browned, about 1 minute. Add slaw mix and bean sprouts and sauté until wilted, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool completely.

 

  • Step 2
    Cut egg roll wrappers in half. Have ready a small bowl of cold water and a pastry brush. Working with wrappers one at a time, lay each out so short side of rectangle faces you. Place about 1 Tbsp. filling toward bottom of wrapper. Pull bottom of wrapper over filling, then fold side corners over filling and roll up tightly, like a burrito. Brush far edge with cold water before closing. Continue with remaining wrappers and filling.

 

  • Step 3
    Heat 2 cups oil in a large skillet to 350°F. Put a few egg rolls in skillet (don’t allow them to touch) and cook, turning over once or twice with tongs, until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

Coconut Chicken Curry

Coconut Chicken Curry

Gluten-free, paleo-friendly, healthy and delicious is that this Filipino-style coconut chicken curry tasteful with contemporary ginger and alternative spices. We tend to superimpose some sweet potatoes and bell peppers for further nutrition and yum!

The other night we tend to had dinner over at our friend’s house. A missionary visiting from France WHO spoke at our church last Sunday stayed with them. For his last night we tend to determined to possess dinner along, form of a pot luck. I didn’t have time to arrange a main dish as we tend to toured him round the space throughout the day (though I created some French callouts for sweet in his honor). Partner and that i simply determined to urge one or two of rotisserie chicken as our contribution.

We had plenty of food! One amongst the roast chickens wasn’t even touched therefore we tend to had to bring it home. As i used to be curious on what to use the chicken for, I remembered that I haven’t nevertheless created any Filipino curry version for the journal. Whereas we tend to usually use raw chicken after we create curry within the Philippines, i believed mistreatment the already roast one would create cookery easier and shorter, too. Besides, you’ll perpetually use another plan on the way to use left-over chicken, right? This can be one such recipe!

Filipino chicken curry could be a very little completely different compared to our Asian neighbors. Technically, it doesn’t extremely use a flavoring combine however merely place confidence in ginger, maybe some turmeric, too for flavor. Since ginger and turmeric square measure usually enclosed in curry mixes and recipes anyway, i feel this qualifies as curry, too. However, i made a decision to feature some flavoring and a few sweet potatoes to the combo (hubby is making an attempt a additional paleo-friendly diet recently and that i am change of integrity him, too). Bell peppers were additionally incorporated for flavor and color. If you would like to form it additional historically Filipino, you’ll use inexperienced unripe papaya rather than sweet potatoes or sweet peppers. Sadly, I didn’t have any papayas after I created this however be at liberty to sub if you are doing. Likewise, the sugar (or a bit honey as sub) isn’t meant to form this Coconut Chicken Curry however merely to balance the flavors of the dish. Like any cookery, merely accommodates style. If not doing a paleo diet, make sure to get pleasure from this with therefore me bush rice!!! this can be a awfully tasty dish so we tend to hope you are trying it shortly
