Homemade Wonton Soup..

Homemade Wonton Soup

For wontons:
1 cooked chicken breast (ground up or chopped very fine)
1 clove of garlic (crushed in garlic press or chopped very fine)
1 inch of fresh ginger (chopped very fine)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 scallion (chopped)
½ tsp salt
½ package of wontons

In the food processor, grind the chicken breast until in very small pieces. In a bowl add all other ingredients together with the chicken and mix well. Lay wonton wrapper onto a cutting board or a flat surface and fill each with 1 tsp of filling. To seal, wet all edges of the wonton and fold it over itself pushing the sides together to seal well. Set aside for later.

For broth:
6 cups prepared chicken broth
1 inch of fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp whole peppercorns
1 tsp ground peppercorns
1 cup baby fresh spinach

In a soup pot bring broth to a boil. Using a tea filter or spice infuser bag, fill with garlic, ginger and whole peppercorns and let float in the soup. Allow it to infuse the broth for about 15 minutes, and then remove the bag.
Add ground pepper fresh spinach and wontons. Cook spinach and wontons for about 5 minutes. Serve with a garnish of cilantro and a drizzle of sesame oil.
