Wonton Noodle Soup With Bone Broth
There are enough wontons here to feed more than a dozen people. Use the appropriate amount of noodles and broth to feed everyone. The amounts given below are for three people.
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 7 minutes
Total Time 27 minutes
Servings 50 wontons
- 1 recipe dumpling filling
- 1 pack square wonton wrappers (about 50 pieces)
- 6 to 8 cups bone broth
- enough egg noodles for three people cooked according to package directions
- greens to garnish
Make the dumpling filling (the link leads to the recipe). Separate the wonton wrappers and make the wontons (the link leads to the full instructions).
While making the wontons, start heating the bone broth. You need it to be boiling gently by the time you're done wrapping and folding. Set the heat to low so that it reaches the desired temperature at about the same time that the dumplings are done.
With the bone broth boiling gently, drop the wontons into the pot. Do this in batches so that the temperature of the broth does not drop too much. A dozen or so wontons at a time. Twenty, if your pot is large and you have plenty of broth. The idea is to NOT overcrowd the pot so that the wontons cook without touching one another. You really don't want them to stick to each other. Stir gently once in a while.
Cook for about five to seven minutes depending on the size of the wontons. Do not allow them to cook for too long to prevent the wrappers from breaking.
Meanwhile, divide the noodles into individual bowls.
Scoop out the wontons and drop into the bowl of noodles.
Ladle hot broth over the noodles and wontons. Garnish with your preferred greens and enjoy your wonton noodle soup.
If you can't consume all 50 wontons (we definitely couldn't), don't cook them all at once.
Place the uncooked wontons in a tray lined with non-stick paper or silicone mat, sprinkle with cornstarch and freeze.
When the wontons are frozen, remove them from the tray and transfer to a resealable bag.
That's the trick so they won't stick to one another. When you want to cook a few wontons, you can easily pick out the number you need from the bag and return the rest back into the freezer.
Frozen wontons will keep for about two weeks.
