When I saw this recipe in a copy of Whole Living magazine that I got from my mother-in-law, I knew that I wanted to make it. It had all of the ingredients and flavors that I love without all of the fuss of trying to make the little dumplings. Even though we basically quadrupled the ingredients, I didn't quadruple the amount of dumplings in the recipe. The dumplings were a little tricky as you are supposed to cook one wonton at a time in boiling water for a minute. That was just way too tedious for me. I added more than one to the pot and just kept them moving with a pair of tongs. I just used the amount called for in the recipe which I, personally, think that were enough. By that time, I was definitely ready to eat. I couldn't find baby bok choy so I used a head of napa cabbage. We decided to use rice wine vinegar instead of white vinegar; but since we were quadrupling the ingredients, I didn't have enough. No problem! We had a bottle of Sake so we used half rice vinegar and half Sake.
The flavors were delicious and everyone loved it. The addition of sriracha and a drizzle of soy sauce made it even better. I am quite sure that this will be a recipe that we will make again and again. I think that next time I will forego the wontons and serve it over some forbidden or red bhutanese rice with some chopped, toasted peanuts on top. Yum!
