Vegan Tofu Wonton Noodle Soup

Every other Saturday, my grandmother on my mom’s side of the family would come over to our house with either one of my aunt or uncle and ask if we would like to go to Chinatown with her so she can grocery shop. I would say my grandmother is one of the strongest women I know. Even with a troubling knee, she always keeps herself active and would fly and anywhere even though she doesn’t know English. My grandfather passed away before I was born so I never got to meet him. However, my grandmother still raised all 10 children on her own as well as her grandchildren whenever my aunts or uncles have to be at work and cannot find a babysitter.

She is not afraid to speak up if something is not right. I always admire her so I always looked forward to her visiting us on the weekends. My mom and I would almost always accompany her even though we don’t need anything much. We don’t always go to the same places, but one that we visit at least once a month is a small supermarket inside a factory where all the noodles and wonton wrappers are being made. My mom would buy a large bag of them since we always go through them quickly.

Whenever she buys more wonton wrappers, I know we would be making some that week or the following. We would serve them with the fresh noodles we bought too. I loved making wontons because they are easier to fold than regular dumplings that my mom makes so beautifully. After we would make a bunch of wontons, my mom and I would bring a large container of them to my grandmother’s house so she can have some. My aunts and uncles would join her after they return from work and would make a bowl of them for themselves and my little cousins. Seeing them and especially my grandmother, enjoying the wonton’s my mom made always warms my heart, knowing they themselves don’t make it often on their own. Those are the memories I remembered the most when I was making these Vegan Tofu Wontons my own.

There are a few parts to making this Tofu Wonton Noodle Soup, but after you have them down, the rest is easy to follow. All you really need to do is make the wontons, cook the noodles and make sure you have a well-seasoned broth and you will have yourself a comforting meal. If you are ready to dig into these tofu wontons, let’s get started!
