This is the fun part y’all:
Here, I’m getting my steamer ready to steam the wontons.
And I’m also starting the soup base in another pot.
For the soup base, I’ve sliced some green onions and ginger.
To flavor the broth, I placed it in there.
Going back to the steamer, steam the wontons for 10 minutes. Set aside until the broth is ready. Note: We steam it instead of putting it directly in the broth so it doesn’t get soggy and mushy.
Once you are read to serve, place the steamed wontons in the boiling soup base for 5 minutes. Ladle into a bowl with a sprinkling of fresh ground pepper. Serve!
