A very tasty and comforting soup! I grew up eating wonton soup and I love chinese dumplings. I always use fresh ingredients and lots of freshly grated ginger. I love the ginger-y and garlic taste in my wontons and that is what I added. I always include chopped shiitake mushrooms, shrimp and water chestnuts to the meat mixture for added flavor and texture. I season with low-sodium soy sauce, sesame oil, Hawaiian sea salt and black pepper for taste (just eye-ball, never measuring). I omitted the bread crumbs. Once I place the meat filling onto the center of the wonton wrapper, I moistened the edges of wonton wrap with water and seal the edges. I boiled them in a pot of water until they floated to the top then set them aside while I heated up my 3 cups of chicken broth. I was only serving three people so I had to cut back on the servings amount. I added sliced char siu to my soup along with some (blanched) baby bok choy. Lastly, I garnished my soup with sprinkles of chopped green onions. This is a nice balance of flavors of the wonton, veggies and the hot chicken soup. We always enjoy this hearty, delicious and comforting soup!
