Serious Eats: Recipes
Homemade Wonton Soup
Note: Kombu is giant sea kelp. It can be found in most Asian grocers. Yellow chives can be found in Chinese grocers. If unavailable, green chives or scallions can be used in their place. Both the broth and the wontons can be made ahead and frozen. To freeze the wontons, place them on a parchment-line plate, cover them loosely with plastic wrap, then place them in the freezer until completely frozen, about 1 hour. Transfer them to a plastic bag. They can be cooked directly from frozen, just add 1 to 2 minutes to the cooking time.
