Instructions
For the Wontons
  1. Combine the Wonton ingredients, except the wrappers and water in a mixing bowl until fully mixed.
  2. For the wrappers, there is two ways to do this, the simple, and the fancy. First thing, add some water to a small dish and keep near you, this is for sealing the wontons.
  3. For the simple way, place a wrapper on your palm, one corner towards you and the opposite corner pointed away from you. Place some pork filing in the center of the wrapper, 1/2 teaspoon to 1/2 tablespoon, you will get the feel for this as you make them. Now dip a finger into the water and wet the two edges that are farthest from you, then take the corner nearest you and fold over away from you to the opposite corner, to make a triangle, and use your fingers to seal the two edges. (I will have photos soon to show this). Set the wonton on a sheet of parchment paper. This completes the simple method, repeat until all the filling is used in each wrapper. OR, read the next step for the fancy method.
  4. For the fancy method, once you have the triangle shape, and the two edges sealed, take the two opposite corners and fold over each other and seal those. (I will have photos to show this soon as well). Set the wonton on parchment paper and repeat until all the filling is used in the wrappers.
For the Soup
  1. Add all of the Soup ingredients to a pot and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, lets the flavors blend. Remove the ginger and garlic.
  2. Bring back to a boil, then lower in the wontons, and cook for 10 minutes. Ladle into bowls and top with spring onion.
  3. Serve.

This sounds really good, to extend the servings, serve over mashed potatoes. On my to cook list. Minimal ingredients makes this a must try.

Instructions
  1. Heat a splash of olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high and add the smoked sausage and cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes to get a light browning to them. Remove from the pan to a plate with a slotted spoon and drain the fat back into the pan.
  2. In the same pan with the sausage fat, add the cabbage, onion, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the cabbage is tender. Mix in the vinegar and mustard and give a stir, then add the sausage back to the pan and cook for another 2-3 minutes to heat through. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired. Serve as is or over mashed potatoes to get more servings.
Recipe Notes

Smoked sausage would be the most expensive part of this dish but you have to look around. I bought smoked sausage at Makro a few months ago for about 150 Baht/500 grams, yesterday however, I bought smoked sausage at Tesco for 99 Baht/1 kilo, so I will figure the sausage at 150 Baht/1 kilo until I check the new sausage I bought yesterday. For 4 servings this is about $1.10 per serving, not bad really, for 6 servings, this is about 75 cents per serving, very good cost.
