Wonton Soup

Well today flew by! Got to talk to my friend Aline George of Mishkanim today on Hebrew Nation Radio  . Aline and Howie George are wonderful musical artists and just all around great people. Gene and Don joined us too. What nice guys. We had a great time! Then off to work I went for a little bit and back home to prepare dinner.

Now on to dinner! Tonight we prepared Wonton Soup. I really enjoyed this meal and the house smells like Chinese food without all the fat, calories and sugars.

First you have to make the "Wontons". The wontons are really a recipe for apple crepes. They are wonderful prepared for breakfast with a little Cashew Kream. We will give you the recipe for the Kream another time.

Apple Crepes

2 cups cored and diced apple
1 cup of flax meal (grind in a coffee grinder)
2 tablespoons of honey
1/2 cup water, or as needed

Process until it takes on a "dough consistency". Spread onto dehydrator tray lined with a teflex sheet. Dehydrate for 4 to 6 hours, or until completely dry. I turn over the "dough" half way through to make sure both side dry. When done it will take on a "tortilla" like consistency.

Now slice the crepe into 16 pieces that are in the shape of a squares. Put aside.

Wonton Filling
3 cups finely chopped napa cabbage
1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1/3 cup of of finely chopped green onions
2 Bragg's Liquid Aminos
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

Combine and allow to marinate for about 15 minutes.

6 cups of warm water
1 teaspoon of Miso paste
1 cup of peas, fresh or thawed from frozen

Stir together until miso paste dissolve.

Press the liquid out of the cabbage filling mixture through a sieve and into a bowl. Add liquid from cabbage filling mixture to soup.

Now put one teaspoon of the cabbage filling in the center of the square crepe and fold into a "wonton". Add wontons to soup and serve immediately. Yum!
