Recipe: Won Ton Soup

For tonight's dinner I used the left over pot stickers from last night to make Won Ton soup. This is a totally made up recipe by me, I didn't even look at another recipe for reference so it was a little touch and go but it actually turned out great (it actually tastes like Won Ton soup). I had to cook the soup a little longer than I would have liked so the won tons kinda fell apart but the whole soup still tasted awesome. Again these measurements are approximate, so use your best judgment.

You will need:
4 cups of vegetable broth
2-3 cups of water
3 tbsps miso paste
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
4-5 mushrooms, chopped
1 baby bok choy, chopped
1 leek, chopped
2 cups of chopped red cabbage
200 grams of tiger prawns
Won Tons (see the recipe below)
1 cup of chopped firm tofu
1/2 tsp of soy sauce
2-3 drops of fish sauce
some garlic powder
some sea salt
some black pepper
some ground coriander

Heat all the liquid and the miso paste in a large soup pot on medium heat. Add onions, garlic and leek and cook until almost tender. Add mushrooms, cabbage, and bok choy. When almost ready to serve (as these will cook quite quickly) add the prawns, tofu and won tons. Season with soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic powder, salt, pepper and coriander. Cook for about 3-5 mins more (until prawns are cooked through) and serve.
