is easy to make, who knew? Admittedly, these were simple wontons, but this tasted like the real deal so it definitely will be a repeat at my house!
I bought wonton wrappers at my local grocery store (nothing special, pretty much the most basic grocery store around) and, having cream cheese and chives on hand, decided to roll up my sleeves and make wontons!
I mixed the cream cheese and fresh chives (sliced) and put about a tablespoon of this mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper.
Wetting the corners, I pressed the wrapper into a wonton shape. Later on, I would discover that this doesn't hold the wrapper together very well and the cream cheese mixture leaks out and then you just have an empty wonton in cream cheesy water (gross). To prevent this from happening, wetting down all four edges works better.
I submerged the filled wontons in a mixture of lightly boiling water, chives, and vegetable stock for about a minute or so, until the cream cheese mixture inside was warm. Doesn't take long at all. Then I removed the water from the stove and poured it, wontons and all, into a bowl.
Voila! Wonton soup!
