Dumpling Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 6 water chestnuts (optional)
  • 4 oz / 110 g lean boneless chicken
  • 4 oz / 110 g lean boneless pork
  • 4 oz / 110 g cured lean ham or bacon
  • 4 oz / 110 g peeled prawns
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 24 wonton wrappers
  • 3 pt / 1.70 l chicken stock

Method

Peel, trim and chop the vegetables, and put in a food processor with three quarters of the meat and prawns. Dice the rest and reserve. Process the meat, prawns and vegetables with the soy sauce and sesame oil until you have a smooth paste. Spoon a little into each wonton wrapper, wet the edges, and draw together to make a bundle. Pinch together to seal it. Bring the stock to the boil, and drop in the dumplings and the reserved meat and prawns. Simmer for 10 minutes and serve.
