Miso Soup with Chicken Wontons and Wilted Greens

Miso Soup with Chicken Wontons and Wilted Greens

Look for fresh wonton skins in the produce section of the grocery store, usually near other fresh noodles/pasta or with other Asian ingredients.

Servings: 2
  • 1/2 lb. ground chicken*
  • 1 Tbsp Tamari or low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp minced ginger root
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 green onions finely chopped
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 32-35 fresh wonton skins or 200g pkg
  • 4 cups water or low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2-4 Tbsp white or yellow miso paste
  • 2 cups chopped leafy greens your choice of Bok Choy, kale, dandelion, spinach, Gai Lan/Chinese broccoli
  • Sliced mushroom green onion, bean sprouts, tofu cubes for garnish (optional)
  1. Chicken Wontons: Combine first 7 ingredients together, using only half of the egg, and mix well.
  2. Keeping a damp cloth over wonton skins and working one at a time, place a small spoonful (about 1 heaping teaspoon) of chicken mixture in centre of each skin. Paint two of the edges (that connect to a corner) with some of remaining egg then fold over remaining two edges; pinch and seal together to make a triangle. Cross ends of two longest sides and pinch together to seal, ensuring that filling is enclosed. Set aside each filled wonton, on their ‘backs’, on a tray and repeat process until all skins and filling have been used up.
  3. Wontons can be refrigerated until ready to use or frozen on tray until solid. Store wontons in resealable freezer bag and pull out an amount needed for use when ready. Frozen wontons can be heated though in hot soup broth or steamed for about 5 minutes for a quick snack. One serving is 6-8 wontons.
  4. Miso Soup: Bring water or broth to boil; reduce heat to simmer. Add miso paste, starting with 2 tablespoons, then adjust to taste. Once miso completely dissolves, increase heat to boil and drop in 12-16 wontons, one at a time. Reduce heat to medium and cook 4-5 minutes or until wontons float to the top.
  5. Add in leafy greens and stir until wilted, about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Ladle soup with wontons into bowls and garnish with any option above. Serves two as a meal.
