Impromptu Wonton Soup

Impromptu Wonton Soup

There are only a few ingredients in this dish and it can be made quickly and easily, since you don't need to wrap any of the wontons.
It's a quick, easy, and deliciously thick soup will be sure to make everyone happy.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Wonton skins (or gyoza skins)
Ground meat (pork, beef, or combined)
80-100 g
Japanese leek
550-600 ml
Chicken soup stock granules
1/2 tablespoon
2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
1 scant tablespoon
Sesame oil
a small amount
Green onion or scallion (optional)
to taste


1. Roughly mince the Japanese leek. Cut the wonton skins (I used gyoza skins this time) in half so that they can become triangles.
2. Add the water and sake to a pot. Then add the chicken stock granules. Bring to a boil.
3. Once boiling, add the leek then break apart the ground meat and add it in too. Add the soy sauce. Remove any scum that rises to the surface.
4. Add the wonton skins one by one. (If you add them all at once, they'll stick to each other.)
5. Taste the flavor. If it's too thin, add some more soy sauce.
6. Add some sesame oil for fragrance and garnish with finely chopped green onion for color. It's done.
