I've been living in Peru for the past few months, and one of my favorite things to eat is
It is delicious - and often served prior to your meal at any Chifa restaurant.
Chifa is a big deal in Peru - it's their version of Chinese food.
Wanton soup


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • 10 cups canned chicken broth
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Chop some cabbage and toss it in
  • About 30 wonton wrappers, thawed if frozen

  • Directions
In a large soup pot heat the oil over medium high heat until hot.
Add 1 tablespoon of the garlic and 1 tablespoon of the ginger.
Cook, stirring until fragrant for 1-2 minutes.
Add the green onions and chicken broth and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium low so broth simmers.
Simmer broth for 20-30 minutes while wontons are being assembled.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the remaining teaspoon of minced garlic and ginger,
add the pork, egg yolk, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and
crushed red peppers and mix throughly.

Lay out a few wontons at a time on plastic wrap - fill a small bowl with cool water and set aside. Using a teaspoon measure, place a heaping teaspoonful of the meat filling in the center of each wonton. Wet the edges of the wonton and bring the corners together to forma triangle, and close edges.

Gently add the wontons to the simmering broth. Increase heat slightly so broth continues to simmer and cook stirring until wontons float to top.
In about 5 minutes you're ready to serve and eat!

Buena suerte, amigos!
