  • 4 oz organic ground turkey breast
  • 2 T. fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 T. green onion, finely chopped
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 T. Tamari
  • 12 square Wonton wrappers
  • Cooking spray


  • 12 wontons
  • 1 c. shredded Chinese or Napa cabbage
  • 8 oz. fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 2 c. organic chicken or beef broth
  • ¼ c. green onion, chopped
  • Sea salt and pepper – optional

Combine the ground turkey, ginger, green onion, egg white, and tamari in a bowl and mix well. Place 1 T. of the mixture in the center of a wrapper. Using a pastry brush or your finger, lightly wet the edges of the wrapper with water. Make a triangular pouch with the filling inside by folding the wrapper diagonally, then squeeze the edges together to seal the pouch. While holding the triangle folded side down, dab a drip of water on the corners. Fold the points over so they meet in the center, and then press the points together to make them stick.

Coat a metal colander with cooking spray. Arrange the wontons in a single layer covering the bottom of the colander. Boil about 1 inch of water in a saucepan large enough to hold the colander suspended over the water by its rim. Cover and let the wontons steam for about 10 minutes. The wontons may also be cooked in soup.

For the soup, bring the stock to a boil in a small saucepan and add the wontons. Cook the wontons for about 10 minutes, then add the green onion.
