I know you know, but if, maybe, you didn't know, Gardein makes delicious, convenient and healthier versions of the foods we all love to eat. These meat-free foods are better for your body and better for the planet. Made with non-GMO soy and wheat, ancient grains and veggies, it provides the taste, texture, and protein content of meat but with less calories, less fat and no cholesterol. Now on to the soup!!
1 package Gardein Sweet and Sour Porkless Bites (sauce thawed according to package instructions)
2 teaspoons refined coconut oil
2 scallions, thinly sliced on a bias, divided
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
18-20 wonton wrappers
8 cups chicken style broth
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 to 1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
In a wide skillet, heat coconut, or other high heat oil to medium-high and add the frozen porkless bites. Spread them out in the pan so none of them are touching, and allow them to brown on one side for 3 to 4 minutes. Gently toss to get all sides brown, another 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from pan and let drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool, then finely mince, or chop finely in a food processor.
Place the ground "pork" in a mixing bowl and add 1/2 of the sliced scallions and the sesame oil. Mix to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste. This is your wonton filling.
Make sure your wontons are vegan, sometimes they have egg whites in them. The Dynasty brand is vegan. So here are a couple good demonstrations on how to wrap up the wontons. Just do it like this so I don't have to explain the whole thing.
