Simple Wonton Soup

February 8, 2015


“Worries go down better with soup” -unknown.

It was raining outside, so it seems right to make a soup. Less your worries, keep calm, keep learn and stay focus on what make you happy, ignore your deadline, -red. Let’s make a soup. Yup, it just a simple soup. That’s why I just write ‘Simple Wonton Soup‘. Let’s see how to make It.

Ingredients :
1 tablespoon  oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger
2 tablespoons of broth powder
3 leeks tablespoons finely chopped
1 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3/4 liter water
1/4 ons shrimp
About 15 wonton wrappers, thawed if frozen

How to make it :
In a large saucepan heat the oil over medium high heat until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of the garlic and 2 tablespoons of the ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour the water, bring to a boil. Add 2 tablespoons of broth powder, 1 teaspoons soy sauce, 1 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper. Reduce heat to medium low for at least 15 minutes while the wontons are being assembled.

Lay out a few of the wontons (keep remaining wonton wrappers covered with plastic wrap). Fill a shrimp (yup, I just have a little shrimp -pelit, red) in the center of each wonton. Using your fingers, lightly wet the edges of the wonton. Bring 2 opposite corners of the wonton together to form a triangle and enclose the filling, pressing edges firmly around the mound of filling to eliminate any air pockets and seal. Moisten opposite corners of the long side. Seal moistened corners toward each other, overlapping one on top of the other, and press the edges together to seal.

Add the prepared wontons to the simmering broth. Increase the heat slightly so that the broth returns to a gentle simmer. Add 3 leeks tablespoons finely chopped. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the wontons float and the shrimp filling is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

Notes :
You can also make broth from shrimp and add sliced pok choy, shiitake mushroom, siomay tahu or meat ball in wonton soup. Yup, you named it Bakso Malang-lah. Hehehe.

Happy weekend. Better days are just around the corner, they are called friday, saturday and sunday. But I think it just sunday –if there is no other agenda. Hikss.
