For those of you who watched Masterchef Australia you would know Dani, one of the top eight contestants.
She posted this recipe for Chicken Wonton Noodle Soup on her blog and so I thought I would try it out.
Whilst watching the show I often questioned her cooking abilities compared to some of the other contestants, but I now need to eat my words - because this was an amazing meal.
The soup stock is prepared quite simply simmering softened onion, garlic, and ginger with star anise, cinnamon, sugar, fish sauce and chicken in water for an hour and a half. I actually used some of my homemade chicken stock as well as water.
The wonton filling is prepared with chicken mince, sesame oil, sugar, fish sauce, spring onion, soy sauce, coriander roots, lime juice and white pepper. It is marinated for an hour before making your wontons.
The soup is then served over fresh egg noodles and the cooked wontons.
Top with mint, coriander and chilli.
We loved this meal and I will be cooking it again.
My daughter asked shortly after we started eating "can we have this for my birthday mum?"
That, by the way, is the reason for my absence, we had my daughters 4th birthday on the weekend. I will have to post some of the photos, including the castle cake!
