I remember watching a throw down with Bobby Flay where he challenged this woman to a pot sticker throw down. I LOVE pot stickers, and since I had left over won ton wrappers, this dish was created. Using a tip my sister used where she ground up leftover chinese to fill her pot stickers, I did something similar by adding left over stir fry that I had made earlier this week.
Before I get to the making of this dish, I have to Thank Food Buzz for sending me this new Soy Sauce by Kikkoman. It’s soy sauce with citrus, and so I added some of that to my soup!
Its a brand new product, so check out your local store and see if its on the shelf.
So, I took my stir fry, put that in my Magic Bullet with Some of the Kikkoman and my favorite stir fry sauce and pulsed it until it was kind of mashed up.
In my stir fry, I had a little chicken, carrots, broccoli slaw, red onion, edamame and chick peas. This is what it looked like after mashing up:
So that was my filling for my won ton wrappers. Now, I’m not an awesome won ton wrapper, and despite trying to follow the instructions, they were not pretty. So instead of fighting it, I just filled each one with about a teaspoon of the filling and just pinched them up into purses.
Here are them all done up!
To make the soup:
In a pot, add 4 cups chicken broth, 3 carrots, sliced, 1 parsnip, peeled and sliced, 2 cloves of garlic, chopped, 1 cup broccoli slaw, 1 green onion, chopped and 1 cup of pea pods, 1 TB. of the Ponzu sauce and 1 TB. of whatever your favorite stir fry sauce is and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the veggies are a little tender. Gently add in the purses and cook on the lowest heat for about 5 minutes.
The nutrition information for the broth and veggies only is: per 1 cup serving:
For 3 of the Won Ton Purses is 100 calories..
So you can have 1 cup of the broth and 6 won ton purses for only 271 calories!
I can’t wait to try this for my lunch tomorrow!!!
