- 1/2 lb ground pork sausage
- 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger or ginger paste
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 green onions chopped (Set aside two tablespoons for garnish)
- 3 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- Wonton skins (about 36-46)
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 small onion chopped
- 8 ounces baby Bella Mushrooms thickly sliced
- 3 large carrots thinly sliced
- 3 stalks of celery chopped
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger or ginger paste
- 6 cups vegetable broth
- 4-5 cups Napa Cabbage chopped
- In small bowl mix together pork, ginger, soy sauce, green onions, bread crumbs and egg. Cover and place in the refrigerator.
- In large stockpot or dutch oven over medium heat canola oil and sesame oil. Cook onion, mushrooms, carrots and celery for 5-6 minutes; stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low add garlic and ginger and cook for additional 1 minute. Add vegetable broth and simmer until carrots are tender; approximately 20-30 minutes.
- While soup is simmering bring large pot of water to boil. Place a wonton wrapper in front of you so that it looks like a diamond. Dip your finger in cool water and moisten all around the edges of the wrapper. Place 1 teaspoon of the pork mixture in the center of the wrapper and fold in half over the filling to make a triangle. Press firmly along the sides to seal. Moisten the left and right corners of the triangle and pinch them together firmly. While working with the wontons keep the extra skins and stuffed wontons covered with lightly water moistened paper towels.
- Working in batches place wontons in lightly boiling water. You do not want them touching. Boil for about three minutes. They should be floating. Remove with slotted spoon and place in soup bowls.
- Add Napa Cabbage to soup and simmer for 3 minutes. Spoon soup over cooked wontons, garnish with green onions and serve.
