Steps to Prepare

Wonton in beetroot mushroom soup Step 1

Step 1 of 2

    • 1 pkt Cooked beetroot
    • 10 Dried dates
    • 10 Dried chinese mushrooms

To prepare the soup: ready-packed cooked beetroot in the supermarket is just as good to use as fresh beetroot which has to be peeled. Soak dried mushrooms in hot water to soften. Drain, remove the stem and slice into 3 sections. Boiled about 1L (for approximately 20-25 wontons) of water and add all the soup ingredients (beetroot, dates and mushrooms). Increase quantities accordingly if wanted the soup for more wontons and this step can be done the day before.

Step 2 of 2

    • 300 g Pork mince
    • Wonton skins (about 25)
    • 2 Spring onions, sliced
    • 1⁄2 Carrot shredded or chopped fine
    • 2 tsp Light soya sauce
    • 1⁄2 tsp Ground white pepper
    • 1 tsp Sesame oil
    • 1⁄2 tsp Sugar
    • 1⁄2 tsp Oyster sauce
    • 1⁄2 tsp Cornflour dissolved in little water for sticking wonton edges

Mix all the ingredients together for the wontons. Wrap wontons and cook them in another pot of boiling water (so that the starch off the wonton skins will not add to the taste of the soup) till they are cooked before having it with the beetroot mushroom soup.
