Won Tons- Heat oil in a wok* or a large skillet. Chop onions finely in a cuisinart. (Everything is cut in a cuisinart finely-if you don’t have one, you can use a knife, and have everything cut before cooking) and add to hot oil. It should sizzle. Stir and lower heat slightly. Add minced garlic. Stir. Chop carrots and add them. Chop celery and add that to the wok. Stir. Do not let vegetable turn brown. Keep stirring. Add chopped cabbage, mushrooms and tofu. Stir. Add soy sauce. Taste. Add a bit of chili sauce if you like it spicy. Heat until the mixture has no residual moisture. Add cilantro and then place in a large bowl to cool.
Make broth- in a large saucepan heat 6-8 cups of water. Add all your vegetables and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and add a tablespoon or so of soy sauce. Let this simmer for at least 30 minutes. Strain and then return back to pan. Season with more soy sauce and salt to taste.
Wrap won tons – First put a cookie sheet covered in wax paper or foil next to you. Also put out a small bowl of water.
Put a dab of water on two touching sides of the wrapper. Place a teaspoon of filing in the middle. Press together in the shape of a triangle. Sealing the edges. Place a dab of water in the corner and bring the other corner over and press together. Place on the sheet and keep going till all are done. (Place leftovers on sheet in freezer. After 4 hours transfer to freezer container)
Bring broth to a slow boil and add won tons one by one. Make only about 12 at a time. They are done in about 3-5 minutes. Make sure there are no holes in the won tons. Place in a bowl with the broth and top with a few cilantro leaves.
