Mushroom Wonton Soup by Jesse Bluma at Pointe Viven



Mushroom Wonton Soup with Roasted Chicken Broth, Leeks, Lemon, and Thyme





Looking for something on the healthy side that is still hardy?  This mushroom wonton soup will satisfy your dinner desires.  Ginger cookies, sugar cookies, and good ol' chocolate chip cookies make a great dessert after this soup.  I remember making wonton soup with my family and friends as a kid, so this a great recipe to make with others and see which person is the best wonton maker.


Ingredients
3 cups roasted chicken broth, homemade (or Wolfgang Puck's brand)
3 cups water

2 carrots, peel, cut into pieces of 2 inches
3 celery stalks, slice thinly
2 garlic cloves, peel, cut into halves
3 strips organic lemon zest, julienne
1 tablespoon thyme
Coarse salt and ground pepper to taste

Stir together stock and water, then leek, carrots, celery, garlic, lemon zest, and thyme.  
Boil on high, reduce to medium, cover, simmer for about 8 minutes.  
Season with salt and pepper.  
Take out the lemon peel and garlic.  
Use with mushroom wonton recipe.
