Justin and I have been on a real Asian kick for AWHILE now.
We started making wontons at home last year and once we realized how easy it was we were DONE and now make them all the time.
Asian food give me the best of all worlds: sweet, sour, spicy, umami….you really can’t go wrong with this food category
This wonton recipe is super versatile. You can add whatever you want to the filling mixture, including making the vegetarian with some nappa cabbage or melted leeks.
There is just something about wontons that is so comforting to me.
We like to eat them either plain and boiled with a little chili oil or we throw it into a noodle soup with shitake mushrooms.
This chili oil recipe is actually my brothers and is super spicy and give me allll the feels. He picked up this recipe while he was living in China, and no lie, THE BEST chili oil I have ever had.
If you would like suggestions on how to make a wonton soup let me know! (maybe I’ll do a blog post on it).
