I started learn how to make this wonton soup 4 years ago when my parents came visit and my mom mention that she would love to try wonton soup if I made it for her. So, I did and she love it. This menu is known in English as “Thai Style Wonton Soup” or “เกี๊ยวน้ำ” in Thai and pronouns as “Kiao Nam”. I am a soup lover! This Wonton Soup is warm me up this winter and beginning of spring. I feel full but it is not too heavy meal.
The soup have light flavor from homemade bone broth with vegetables, full of nutrients. The wontons are not that hard to make it at home as well. In this recipes I will tell you how to make your own wontons step by step. I wrap wontons with ground turkey but you can use ground chicken or pork, it won't change the texture. I'm not recommend to use ground beef because it will change the texture of this soup and it will be heavy meat inside the wonton wrap. The spotlight of this menu is bone broth if this broth taste good then this menu taste perfect. Let’s start!
Menu Ingredients Serving for 4
In this menu, I separate ingredients into two parts which the first part is soup and second is wontons ingredients.
Bone Broth Soup Ingredients
2 big pieces of Pork Bone
8 cup of Water
3 cloves of Garlic
1/2 Sweet Yellow Onion
1 Carrot, chunk cut
3 Celery, chunk cut
Dashes Salt and Ground Black Pepper
Bone Broth Soup Preparation
In a large soup pot, added water with high heat and bring it to boil then add pork bone and garlic, let it boil for at least 5 minutes then reduce heat to medium.
Added the left of ingredients; onion, celery, and carrot into the pot and let the soup simmer to get all the flavor for at least 6-8 hours or until the bone fall apart.
To get the right texture of bone broth and nutrition from the bone approximately take at least 6-8 hours or if it can be possible simmer for 18 - 24 hours the broth will be really rich texture. This step can be prepare the day before.
