A steaming bowl of won tons is welcome in any season, and making them at home is a fairly easy process. Purchase a package of high-quality won ton skins, which are available everywhere, and then it’s just a matter of filling and folding them. Once they hit boiling water they cook for just 2 minutes. The filling — usually a simple mixture of well-seasoned minced meat — may be substituted with mushroom, chives, and cabbage as a vegetarian option. Served with a vinegar/soy and sliced ginger, these dumplings may be served in a clear vegetarian or miso broth. Here are some homemade snapshots of our making of wontons at home.
