Wonton Filling:

  • 8 ounces ground pork
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

  • 8 cups chicken broth

  1. In a large bowl, combine all the filling ingredients.
  2. Place 1 teaspoon of the filling in the center of a wonton wrapper. Moisten the edges with water and fold in half to create a triangle. Moisten the two longer tips and bring them together, pressing firmly to seal.
  3. Dip the bottom of the wonton in flour and place on a parchment-lined pan. Repeat with the remaining wontons.
