Super Scrumptious Wonton Soup

What you need: 

1/3 cup vegan ground sausage
1/2 cup spinach (fresh or frozen)
2 stalks scallions, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped ginger, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
soy sauce, to taste
1 1/2 cups water
3 cups vegetable broth
6 or 7 vegan wonton wrappers, room temperature

What you do: 

1. For the wonton filling, saute sausage, scallion, spinach (no need to defrost, just throw in pan if frozen), and 1/2 of chopped ginger in a large pot with olive oil and soy sauce for approximately 5 minutes. Remove all ingredients from pot and set aside in bowl to cool a little.
2. In same pot, over low/medium heat, pour in stock and water and scrape bits of sausage off the bottom of pan. Pour in more soy sauce and let lightly simmer. In another pot, boil enough water to fill 2/3 of the pot.
3. Have small bowl of water handy. Put about 1 tablespoon filling in the middle of each wonton wrapper. Brush some water on 1/2 of the edge of the circular wrapper. Then fold over the the top and push down on all edges with fingers and then fork so that you have a nice semi circle. Try to make sure you don't put too much filling that you can't fold over the wrapper without spillage.
4. Do this for all wrappers, but leave 1 tablespoon filling aside. Now put the set-aside filling into the soup. Place each wonton gently into the boiling water and let cook for approximately 2 minutes until they happily float. Then place them in soup, let sit for another 2 minutes and serve!
This soup makes me very very happy.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Just made this last night and is really very good.  Especially good after sitting overnight!!  I did have trouble keeping the wontons together, but maybe I just need more practice.  I did also add some garlic and ginger to the broth, along w shredded carrots, beansprouts, and some extra scallions.  I used Tofu Crumbles for the filling, and they were fine, but think I'll try something like the frozen Steaklets/Stakelets shredded next time.  I couldn't find the veg sausage the recipe called for...  Also, the recipe did not seem to make a large amount, so I doubled or tripled.  Not sure how authentic, as I haven't had the real thing in over 25 years, but satisfied the craving and was delicious either way.  Thanks!

This shredded spicy chicken you mention...Where do you get it and what is the brand name? I would love to make the wontons with that inside. YUM

Hi!  I used the Light Life Smart Strips Chicken Style (they also have Steak style, not as good in my opinion).  I put the strips through my magic bullet which shredded it up perfectly (also great for chicken salad) and then cooked it up with some cayenne, paprika, garlic salt, and chili powder.  This brand of chicken strips are the absolute best, we use them for everything.  They're sold at most of our regular supermarkets, and at Follow Your Heart, which is AWESOME!  This soup is totally worth making, and the chicken goes sooo good in the wontons.  Good luck! =)

This recipe is, indeed, amazing.  I left out the ginger since neither of us like it, and used shredded spicy chicken instead of the sausage.  I loved this soup, and will definitely be making it again and again and again...  Thanks!!! :)>>>

I'm going to give this a second shot once I get the chance. I was out of veg broth and thought I could manage using a bullion cube, not realizing that the herbs in the cube totally don't work with the flavors in wonton soup. So that was a mistake on my part, that and I completely failed at folding the wontons so most broke open. The filling is great though and will certainly love to see how it'll turn out never time.

:)>>>  This recipe is amazing.  I add ginger to the broth as well and I add bean sprouts.  I use veggie crumbles not sausage.  I have been missing good old fashioned wonton soup! Thanks!
