To fill, place a teaspoonful of filling into the center of one won ton. Using your finger or a pastry brush, moisten the area around the filling.WonTonSoup2a

To fold, pinch two opposite sides together, then pinch together the remaining two sides. Gently press the pinched center edges firmly around the mound of the filling to eliminate any air pockets and seal. Assemble the remaining wontons.

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the won tons, cooking about 4-6 at a time or so there is enough room that they are not crowed and can move freely. Boil for 6-8 minutes (checking one to ensure it's cooked, then you can time the rest of the batches better). Remove from pot with a slotted spoon, and add to individual bowls that have been filled with a veggie filled soup base.WonTonSoup6

      Notes
      Deep-frying won tons: In a heave wok or saucepan, heat oil for deep-frying to 360°F (use enough oil so depth is at least 2”). Fry only a few at a time (so the temperature of the oil doesn’t reduce, causing the won tons to cook slower and absorb more oil), turning once golden. Remove with metal tongs or slotted spoon once golden on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve with Sweet & Sour Sauce
