I had a hankering for wonton soup tonight, and had two opened bags of wontons in the freezer (pork and mushroom, and pork and leek) that I wanted to use up.

I used Peep's recipe for the broth, but didn't have bok choy or green onions. I just used some fresh parsley.

This hit the spot! Peep's broth recipe is excellent!

Made this again, with frozen "pork and leek" wontons from the Asian supermarket.

It's SO easy, so good, so comfort-food!

This time I had baby bok choy, which I chopped up. I have green onions for garnish, but since the dumplings have leeks in them, I'll just use a couple for presentation and texture.

YUMMMM!

YUMMY Lee!! I may make homemade wontons next weekend. Filling only takes about 5 minutes or less to zap the add ins in the mini chopper then mix with the meat. My DD and I can fill and seal a package of wontons in about 20 minutes or less. Really quick meal.

I also want to try my hand at homemade egg rolls.

PS Lee the bowls are square corelle bowls (I love the fact that they don't break to easy LOL) and the spoons I got many years ago when DD#1 was just starting to feed herself. That one in the picture is ceramic. BUT I let her use the plastic ones.

Oh, BTW, Peep, I'm glad I looked back at your broth recipe as I was making this batch!

I thought I remembered it, but your addition of "hot" made a big difference in the flavor! I used a tiny bit of Sambal Oleck (sp?) and it was perfect!

I gave half of this batch to my wonderful friend and neighbor, Kathy, who has a cold and she adores this soup!

I love adding a splash of sesame oil and/or hot chili sesame oil to the soup and just about ALL my asian inspired dishes. I love adding them to my jasmine rice and stir fry. It gives them a nice asian flare of flavor AND heat.

YUP and having other health issues (known or unknown at the time) makes it harder for anyone to shake a simple cold. :sad:

Will be making this tonight, as it's a cold and blustery November day.

Dad is visiting me, and he requested it.

Homemade pork wontons (I used ground pork shoulder and fresh wonton wrappers, it tasted really good. The wontons were cooked day before) heated in chicken broth. Wontons and boiling broth added to bowl on top of veggies. The veggies were nice and crisp.
