  • 1 lb Lean beef minced (ground)
  • 2 Tbs Soy sauce
  • piece Fresh root ginger peeled 2 1/2 cm (1 in) and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Grated nutmeg
  • 10 oz Chopped spinach
  • 8 oz Wonton dough thinly rolled and cut into 36 squares, or 36 bought wonton wrappers
  • 3 pints Chicken stock
  • 1 bunch Watercress chopped


  • Put the beef, soy sauce, ginger, salt, nutmeg and spinach in a bowl and mix thoroughly until they are well blended.
  • Lay the wrappers on a flat surface and put a little filling just below the centre. Wet the edges of the dough, then fold over one corner to make a triangle, pinching the edges together to seal. Pull the corners at the base of the triangle together and pinch to seal.
  • Half-fill a large saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Drop in the wontons and return to the boil. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the wontons are tender but still firm. Remove from the heat and pour off the water. Return the wontons to the pan and pour in the stock.
  • Bring to the boil, then stir in the watercress. Return to the boil. Transfer the soup to a warmed tureen and serve at once.
