Celebrate Chinese New Year with wonton soup

 
Thought your New Year’s celebrations ended January 1? Think again! Invite your best buds over to ring in the Chinese New Year with a tasty twist on traditional wanton soup. Don’t forget to grab a couple o’ fortune cookies!

 

Ingredients:

Serves 6

8 oz regular or lean ground pork 

4 green onions, minced, divided 

1 tbsp soy sauce    

1⁄2 tsp five-spice powder

1⁄4 tsp freshly ground black pepper        

24 wonton wrappers, thawed if frozen   

1 egg, lightly beaten           

8 cups chicken stock

 

Note: Five-spice powder is a blend of ground cloves, fennel seeds, cinnamon, star anise and Szechwan peppercorns. Most large grocery stores stock it, but if you can’t find it, just use a mixture of the individual spices. It will still taste delicious.

 

Directions:

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

 

In a large bowl, combine pork, half the green onions, soy sauce, five-spice powder and pepper. Mix with your hands until well combined. To taste for seasoning, heat a small skillet over medium heat and fry a spoon-sized patty until no longer pink. Taste and adjust seasoning with soy sauce, five-spice powder and pepper, if necessary.

 

Place a rounded teaspoon of filling in the center of each wonton wrapper. Brush beaten egg around the edges of the wrapper. Lift two opposite corners together to form a triangle and enclose filling, pressing all edges firmly to eliminate air pockets and seal. Place wontons on prepared baking sheet, making sure they don’t touch.

 

In a large pot, bring stock to a simmer over medium heat. Add wontons and simmer until wrappers are tender and filling is cooked through, about 8 minutes.

Ladle stock into heated bowls and top each with 4 wontons. Garnish with the remaining green onions.
