80--- Elk Wonton Soup

This soup was restaurant-good and so easy and filling! I was planning on serving edamame with it for a healthy "filler", but my neighborhood grocery didn't have any, so that plan was shot. But, my hard-working hubby didn't even need it!

I LOVE wonton wrappers-- can't imagine my life without them.

Elk Wonton Soup

Serves 4


1/2 lb ground elk

1 egg white

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp lemon juice

2 tsp lite soy sauce

2 tsp sesame oil

2 tsp maple syrup

3 Tbsp panko crumbs

16 wonton wrappers


8 cups low sodium chicken broth

1 carrot, shredded

1/2 cup bok choy, chopped

1 clove garlic, pressed and minced finely

1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

Combine ingredients for wonton filling and mix thoroughly (with hands works best). Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Bring chicken broth to a boil and add remaining soup ingredients. Reduce heat to simmer while preparing wontons, ~ 20 minutes.

Place wonton wrappers on a flat clean surface. Brush each wrapper lightly with water (with a pastry brush). Place 1 1/2 Tbsp elk mixture in the center of each wrapper. Fold edges of wrapper together into a triangle and press edges together. Make sure no air is trapped in with the meat!

Gently place wontons into soup and place over medium-low heat. Cook for ~6-8 minutes.

Place 4 wontons in each bowl and cover with remaining soup broth.
