Vegan Wonton Soup Recipe Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 30 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 20 mins
▢ 3/4 cup water
▢ 1/2 tsp salt
▢ 1 3/4 cups flour
▢ 1 tbsp olive oil
▢ 1 cup dried porcini mushrooms
▢ 1 tbsp sesame oil
▢ 1/2 tsp salt
▢ 1/2 tsp black pepper
▢ 1 cup scallions
▢ 1 tbsp sesame oil
▢ 3 cloves garlic, minced
▢ 4 scallions, halved
▢ 4 cups vegetable stock
▢ 2 cups oyster mushrooms
▢ 2 cups shiitake mushrooms
▢ 2 heads Pak Choi
▢ 1/4 cup soy sauce
▢ 1/4 cup sesame seeds
1Add salt to lukewarm water and mix together. Then, gradually add plain flour, and continue mixing until a dough forms.
2Add olive oil, and knead on a lightly-floured surface for 5 minutes. Cover with a kitchen towel and set aside for 10 minutes
3Rehydrate the porcini mushrooms by soaking them in water overnight. There's no need to drain them before making the filling.
4Heat sesame oil in a frying pan or work over a medium-high heat. Add the porcini mushrooms, salt, black pepper and scallions. Allow to cook, stirring frequently, for around 7-8 minutes, until lightly crispy, but not dried out.
5Divide it into 4 sections to make the rolling process easier, then transfer a section onto a surface dusted with cornstarch, and roll it out into a very thin sheet. Flip it around 4-5 times to get the perfect result, and continue dusting with cornstarch to prevent sticking.
6Remove the outer edges of the dough to form a square shape, then divide the square into nine smaller squares.
7Place around 1 tbsp of the filling in the centre of a wonton wrappers, then dip your fingers in water and wet the edges. Fold over the square to form a triangle, and press down to seal. Then, bring together the corners of the triangle to make the wonton shape. Repeat with the rest of the wrappers.
8Heat sesame oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and cooking scallions and garlic for 5 minutes, until fragrant.
9Add vegetable stock, shiitake mushrooms and oyster mushrooms. Cook for 10 minutes more.
10Add soy sauce and Pak Choi. Stir together, and continue simmering for around 5 minutes more, until the Pak Choi wilts.
11Add the wontons to the broth, and simmer for around 5 minutes, until the dough is cooked through and they rise to the surface. Make sure not to overcook as to allow the wontons to retain their structure.
12Serve immediately with sesame seeds and extra scallions.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
