|Quick Chicken-Cilantro Wonton Soup ~ Using Trader Joe's Frozen Chicken-Cilantro Wontons makes creating this soup a pleasure!|
The Chinese New Year is being celebrated today ~ Sunday, February 10th. The year 2013, is the ~ Year of the Snake. I thought I'd share my really quick and super easy version of the ever-popular Chinese Wonton Soup. I use frozen wontons in my spin and call it ~ Quick Chicken-Cilantro Wonton Soup. I love making it because it tastes so good, I can get it on the table in minutes and it makes me feel like I'm enjoying a meal in a Chinese restaurant.
Couldn't be easier to make ~~ I use a 1/2 bag of Trader Joe's Frozen Chicken Cilantro Mini Wontons, 4 cups of chicken broth, 1/2 a thin chopped green onion or some fresh chopped chives, a few sprigs of chopped fresh cilantro, a little grated fresh ginger, a sprinkling of Chinese 5-Spice, a dash of white pepper and a splash of Braggs. (or you could use some of your favorite soy sauce)
I throw it all together in a sauce pan and simmer until the wontons are cooked, about 5 minutes or so. A tasty, exotic soup, ready in no time at all ~ I like that! For a traditional end to your meal, consider serving some sliced oranges. In Chinese food symbolism, they are considered a symbol of wealth. (and they taste really good! :) Enjoy! :)
