Wontons:

  • ½ lb ground pork
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • 1 egg
  • 40 wonton wrappers
  • 6 cups water

Soup:

  • cups vegetable broth
  • cups water
  • 1 tomato, chopped

Instructions
 

  • Mix pork, scallions, ginger, cornstarch, vinegar, sesame oil and egg in a bowl.
  • Place 1 tsp mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper. Wet edges of wonton and fold to form a triangle shape. Seal edges. Press two corners of folded wonton together to form a hat and seal.
  • Bring six cups of water to a simmer in a large pot.
  • Gently place 12 wontons into boiling water. Add ½ cold water and allow water to return to a simmer. Add more cold water as needed, ½ cup at a time, to maintain a gentle simmer.
  • When wontons float to the surface of the water (about 5 minutes), scoop from the pot and lay on a plate in a single layer.
  • In the meantime, mix broth and water in a pan. Add tomato and bring to simmer.
  • To serve, place one cup of soup in a bowl with 4 wontons.
  • Hack: Freeze remaining uncooked wontons in a single layer on a baking sheet. When solid, transfer to a freezer-safe container. Cook from a frozen state, allowing 2 extra minutes to cook. Any leftover wonton wrappers can be wrapped tightly and frozen as well.
