Tuesday 12th July - mayonnaise, wonton soup

Made mayonnaise.
Dinner - wonton soup, wontons and dipping sauce.
Made wonton mixture - chopped garlic and ginger, minced chicken and some bacon fat, added sesame oil, oyster sauce, fish sauce (think that was it)
Soup - chopped ginger, garlic and deseeded chili, added duck stock, cooked 10 mins, added finely sliced carrot, celery, bok choy and cooked 10 mins. Meanwhile cooked the wontons in a saucepan.
And made a dipping sauce - soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, lemon juice (think there was something else?)
Put two of the wontons in a bowl and poured the soup over. The rest we ate with dipping sauce.
This was just the best dinner. These wontons were perfect and everyone loved them. (I think dd1 and dd2 having 11 each said something, lol.


  1. Yummy! We're making wontons this week with pork mince - hadn't thought of doing soup with them. Do you think they would cook ok in the Varoma?

  2. Belinda, They cook fine in the varoma - search back through the blog and there is a link to a wonton soup recipe that cooks them in the varoma (I've made it a few times). But I prefer them boiled, only takes a couple of minutes.
    A lot of recipes cook the wontons in the soup but that's not recommended as the flour goes into the soup and they tend to overcook.
