Description

This easy, better than takeout, 10-minute Shanghai style wonton soup is the perfect soup to make for one person and is packed with classic Asian flavours.


Ingredients

  • 10 wontons, fresh or frozen
  • 1 teaspoon maggi sauce (or soy sauce)
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 pieces of nori seaweed, loosely crumbled
  • 1 teaspoon cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon green onions, chopped

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil over high heat. Add wontons and turn heat down to medium-high. Give it a quick stir so that the wontons don't stick to the bottom. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, until wontons float to the top. Add 1 cup of cold water. Once the wontons float up again to the top, remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a large soup bowl, add maggi sauce, sesame oil, white pepper, salt, and seaweed. Scoop wontons out of the pot and into the bowl. Add 2 cups of the wonton water into the bowl and garnish with cilantro and green onions.
