{"label":"","quantity":"10"}

  • 01
  • Place chicken stock, green part of spring onion, soy sauce and sesame oil in a saucepan over high heat, bring to the boil, add cabbage and ginger, then remove from heat and keep warm.
  • 02
  • For pork wontons, combine pork, grated ginger, garlic, coriander and white part of spring onion in a bowl. Season to taste and stir well to combine. Working with one wonton wrapper at a time, place a heaped teaspoon of pork mixture in centre of wrapper, brush edges with eggwhite, then fold diagonally to form a triangle, press edges to seal, then fold and pinch bottom corners together to form wonton shape. Cook wontons in batches (as you continue preparing more), in a saucepan of boiling salted water until tender and cooked through (2-4 minutes). Drain well on a tea towel.
  • 03
  • Transfer pork wontons to bowls, ladle hot chicken broth over, scatter with extra coriander and serve hot.
