Delicious wantans in turkey soup

Wantans in Turkey Soup is a great comfort food. During times when you know you will be very busy, this is a great one-bowl meal to have. It’s very simple, easy and quick to cook. But make sure you always have marinated mince and wantan skin in your freezer and vegetables in your fridge.

Bok choy is one of my family’s favourite vegetables. I like to use it for stir fries or even in soup. It looks fresh, healthy and refreshing with a lovely crunchiness to it if you don’t over cook it. I like to add it to wantans, whether in dry type or in soup. Here’s my recipe for this wantan, or wonton, in soup.

Cut bok choy

mince (any type)
wantan skin
bok choy
turkey soup
fried shallots
fried shallot oil
some pepper powder
light soya sauce

Wrapped wantan

To marinade the mince, click here. I use turkey this time. Wrap the turkey mince in the wantan skin in whatever way you prefer. When I cook them in soup, I like to wrap them in the centre so that they look like flowers when they are served. Sometimes I fold them into triangles too. The amount of meat is up to individual. I don’t use a lot of meat. I like a good proportion of meat to the wantan skin so that they taste delicious.

Usually I cook the turkey soup in the morning. I just let it simmer for a few hours. A very good soup base is important. It is very easy to cook. Click here for my simple way to cook turkey soup, with a lot of carrots added, both for sweetness, colour and added nutrients. It’s also a way to make my children eat more vegetables.

Put some water in a pot to boil. Add the wantans and boil for about 5 minutes. Dish it up into a bowl of turkey soup. Add the vegetables, fried shallot oil, some pepper powder and some fried shallots. Adjust the taste using light soya sauce. Serve it hot.

This soup is my comfort food now. The weather is a bit cool today. Another comfort food is chicken soup. But right now, I want some chicken and rice soup with mushrooms. :D

Oh I want this! I love bok choy in wonton soups.

Larry  on December 3rd, 2009

ahh can I have some lovely wantans please? :P

Mary  on December 3rd, 2009

@Divina - Yes, I would love chicken soup too. I often use turkey drumsticks because they are cheap here and make a very delicious soup base.

@Sook - Aha….another bok choy lover. It’s one vegetable that my family will eat a lot :)

@Larry - Of course….come, and I will cook all that you want.

I love wantons in turkey soup have to try.

TasteHongKong  on December 3rd, 2009

I can imagine how yummy the wantans are with such a good soup base. You are creative again in using turkey as the fillings.

Mary  on December 3rd, 2009

@foodlovee - We have similar taste buds :)

@TasteHongKong - Thanks. Turkey makes very good soup and as dumpling or wantan filling. My family really likes it.

cheah  on December 3rd, 2009

Great innovation, using turkey as filling. Wonder how it’ll taste, care to share? Ha, ha

Mary  on December 3rd, 2009

@Cheah - It tastes just as good. Turkey is very lean which is better for health. I always add a lot of finely grated carrots and often finely diced onions and spring onions to give it a better texture.

This is really superdelicious with the bok choy in the soup.

joylicious  on December 3rd, 2009

Wontons are the best, I really like that you use turkey because it is so lean. Mmmm this would be great right now since the heater in my house is broken and the weather is SO COLD. I also have an award on my site for you to pick up :) Thank you for always making my mornings a delight!

Mary  on December 3rd, 2009

@Anncoo - It is delicious enough to make me happy in this cold weather :)

@Joylicious - Awwww…thanks very much for the award. I have a few to hand out and still writing the post about it. Oh no….heater down….hope it’s fixed. I can imagine the cold. I wish I can send you a big pot of hot soup! Please keep warm.

@Alta - Thanks for lovely comment.

@Penny - Thanks for comment. I use turkey meat very often for cooking….hopefully to keep everyone slim :P

I would love to make my own wontons, I need to seek out the wrappers from my local oriental store.

Mary  on December 4th, 2009

@Sarah - It is very easy to make the wantans. I hope you get the wrappers soon. Try Chinatown. I know there are lots there.
