Wonton Egg Drop Soup

Wontons are often described as irregular dumplings.
Here is a recipe to make wonton soup Or egg drop soup OR
you can go all out and make wonton egg drop soup together in one!

2 carrots cut in half or whole
3-4 celery stock cut in half
1 medium onion cut in half
1-2 cinnamon sticks
3 TBSP of soy sauce OR 1-2 teaspoon of salt (your desired amount of salt)
2 garlic cloves cut in half OR (1 teaspoon) of garlic powder
1 TBSP of sesame oil
let it come to a low boil and then turn the heat down on a medium simmer 
to add the wontons, eggs or both!

(be sure to take out all of the items that help create the light flavorful broth
before gently dropping the wontons and adding the egg towards the end.
The carrots, celery and all above ingredients are to just create the broth
and are meant to be taken out by a strainer, or ladle, large spoon or tongs etc...)

half pound of ground pork OR chicken
1/2 bunch of cilantro cut into 1/2 inch pieces OR chopped fine (to your liking)
pinch of salt OR drizzle of soy sauce to coat the ground protein
2 garlic gloves minced or chopped fine
1 TBSP of hoisin sauce
1 TBSP sesame oil
1 TBSP of rice vinegar 

Egg drop portion:
take 2 eggs, crack them, whisk and add 3-4 TBSP of water
drizzle over a fork right into the stock to get long ribbons of egg
(it will cook instantly)

Scallions are a nice way to garnish at the end, right into your bowl
