Hoisin Celery Wontons in Wonton Soup

This exciting Hoisin celery wontons recipe features a flavorful broth containing homemade pork, hoisin and Chinese celery wontons. It couldn’t be simpler to make and this makes a warming meal for the whole family. You can even make extra wontons and freeze them for next time.

This Hoisin celery wontons soup recipe calls for soy sauce paste. Soy sauce paste is similar to soy sauce but thicker. If you can’t get it, just use the regular kind. Be careful not to add too much sesame oil; a little really does go a long way.

You can find Chinese celery in any Asian grocery store and it is sweeter than regular celery. If you can’t get it then try adding chopped Napa cabbage or black mushrooms instead. This Hoisin celery wontons soup is going to be so good!

Use a food processor to combine the filling ingredients if you want but use the “pulse” setting because it’s best to leave some texture in the shrimp and meat. You don’t want them to vanish into a puree. You should be able to see the different ingredients when you bite into the wonton. Use egg wonton wrappers or the ones without egg; either works fine here.

Ingredients
  • 1 lb (450g) ground pork
  • ¼ cup chopped Chinese celery
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 package of wonton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce paste
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 chopped green onions
  • 4 pints chicken, vegetable or seafood broth
Instructions
  1. Combine everything except the broth, wonton wrappers and green onions in a bowl and use chopsticks or a big fork to mix. Put a teaspoon of this mixture on each wonton wrapper. Roll the wonton wrappers up halfway then fold the two sides back and dab on some water.
  2. Lay the wontons on a baking sheet. Don’t forget to dust your wontons and the baking sheet with flour to keep them from sticking.
  3. If you aren’t going to use them right away, you can layer them in a freezer bag and freeze them for up to 2 months. If you want to keep them for 4 months store them in an airtight container.
  4. Heat a pot of broth on the stove. When it boils, turn the heat down to a simmer and add the green onions. Bring a pot of water to a boil and drop in 10 wontons and stir once with a wooden spoon so none stick to the bottom of the pan. When they float to the top, scoop them out of the broth and put them in the soup.
  5. Add 10 more wontons to the hot water and repeat until all the wontons are cooked and in the soup. Serve hot. Be careful when handling the wontons because they can break if you a) overfill them or b) don’t treat them carefully.

You can see in the picture all the delicious soft hoisin wontons floating in the soup. Some people like to cook their wontons in water, then transfer them into the soup using a slotted spoon, so you can do that if you prefer. Your Hoisin celery wontons is going to be perfect. Wonton soup recipes vary, but this one is extra tasty with its pork, celery and hoisin wontons. Use any kind of broth, consommé or bouillon for the soup and garnish with cilantro leaves before serving, if you like, to complement the green onions in the wonton soup.
