Dumpling soup is one of our favorites especially during those cold winter days.  The dumplings can be made ahead and stored in the freezer. It is also easy and fun to make and an affordable meal.

  • ½ lb. ground pork
  • 5-6 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions
  • 1 pack wonton wrapper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3-4 cups chicken broth
  • salt and pepper
  • water to seal dumpling
  • Optional: sliced shrimps (coarsely chopped) and shredded chicken

  1. Mince garlic and chop green onions and set aside.
  2. Add half of the garlic, half of the green onions, egg, salt and pepper and bread crumbs into the ground pork. Mix thoroughly and set aside. (Option: for more savory dumpling, add coarsely chopped shrimps into the mixture)
  3. Place a teaspoon of the filling in the center of the wonton wrap.
  4. Use water to moisten the 2 sides of the wonton paper and fold over the filling forming a triangle. Press gently but firmly making sure to seal the edges.
  5. Take both ends of the dumpling and press to seal one edge over the other then set aside.

Tip: Make sure to keep the wonton wrapper from getting dry by covering it with moist paper tower of damp cheesecloth.  You can also keep them in the bridge while working on batches of dumplings.
