A cornerstone of Chinese cuisine, wontons are more than just a tasty treat. These little packages have a rich history and a wide range of variations. The filling itself varies greatly, from the traditional pork and shrimp mixture to vegetarian options and even sweet fillings.

At home we mainly eat it with a mixture of minced pork and shrimp, but the herbs and condiments of our recipe also go well with minced chicken or minced beef. You can prepare the wontons in different ways. You can boil, pan-fry, steam and even deep fry the dumplings. Please pay attention to what type of wonton wrappers you use. One is intended for cooking/steaming and the other is better used for frying.

Preparing wontons is an experience in itself. Folding takes practice and time, but in return you get tasty homemade dumplings. Try our family recipe and be surprised!

Storage:
If you have leftover wontons, you can easily freeze them. The best way to do this is to place them next to each other in a container, cover it with foil and freeze it for 3 to 4 hours. Then you can take them out of the freezer and put them in a bag to save space. This way you ensure that the sheets do not stick together. If you want to use the wontons, you can add them directly to your soup. You don't have to thaw them first.
