Does anyone know where I can find a good wonton soup recipe (especially the broth)? Everything broth I'm looking at seems to just be a combination of chicken broth, seasoning, scallions, rice vinegar and sesame oil. I'm worried it will be too bland to eat with noodles added.
It is just seasoned stock really, so you make it as complicated as you want. That serious eats article looks pretty legit.
I do a simple pork broth quite a lot, it's just:
a couple shallots and scallions
half a dozen garlic cloves and ginger slices
pinch each of peppercorns, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, cinnamon bark and star anise
Fry it all a bit in sesame oil until it's browned, then simmer it in water for a few hours. Adjust it with salt, palm or whatever sugar and rice wine.
