Turkey Wontons


Hello Fall! Those of you who know me, know that September is the real new year in my life. Nothing like the crisp air and back-to-school vibes to get me excited to be productive. Making these wontons was the ultimate batch cook - we made over 200! Not only was it was it an extra productive evening, it felt more like an edible craft night when doing it with a few friends. And did I mention everyone got a little gift bag of MORE wontons for later?! Steam them or throw them in some broth. In case anyone is wondering, I made them in a Thai Red Curry Broth, inspired by Lisa Lin, and not only did it give my weeknight dinners a facelift, but gave me all the more reason to love fall (and life).

Helpful Hints:

  • Freeze the extra (they will get soggy if you store them in the fridge)

  • There are lots of way to wrap wontons, whichever you choose make sure you get out as much air as you can, seal the edges well and don't overfill them.

  • Ideas of how you can wrap wontons, my preference is method 3 in the following video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndL5li4KAbI

Prep Time: 1+ hours

Difficulty: Easy-Moderate

Makes 200 Wontons

INGREDIENTS

2kg ground turkey

5 cups chopped cabbage

25 spring onions, thinly sliced

10 tbsp fresh minced ginger

11 tsp sesame oil

11 tsp low sodium soy sauce

200 wonton wrappers

METHOD

In a large bowl, mix the turkey, cabbage, onion, ginger, sesame oil and soy sauce.

Start folding wontons (link above)!

  • Triangle Fold: Hold the wonton wrapper in your hand. Put 1 heaping teaspoon of filling in the centre. Use your finger to wet the edges of the wrapper (have a bowl of water handy to dip your fingers in). Fold in half into a triangle shape ensuring there is as little air as possible in the wonton and that the edges are sealed

  • To turn that into the fold in the photo, take the 2 corners connected to the folded edge of the triangle and connect them to make a point that is opposite to the untouched corner. Don't forget to use water to hold it together.

To cook, steam or cook them in a broth of your choosing until cooked through (about 8-10 minutes).

Freeze all the extra.
