Quadrucci soup was a favorite of mine growing up,but it takes a lot of time to roll the dough to make these tiny little squares of pasta. Luckily JSL Food created Twin Draggon wonton wrappers – velvety and soft, they make the perfect quadrucci – no one has to know!
Grandma Sellani’s Quadrucci Soup
- 32 oz. vegetable broth
- ½ c. chopped onion
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 carrots, diced small
- 2 celery stalks diced small
- 1 T. vegan butter
- 1 c. mushrooms, diced small
- 1 bay leaf
- ½ c. fresh flat leaf Italian parsley, minced
- ½ package (14 oz.) Twin Dragon brand wonton wrappers. Keep in refrigerator until ready to cut.
- 1 tsp. salt or more to taste
- Several grinds of fresh ground black pepper
- Toppings: vegan Parmesan, extra parsley or a squeeze of lemon
- Take the wonton wrappers and cut lengthwise into thin strips (about 1/16”). Cut the strips widthwise into squares (1/16” on each side). Set aside.
- Heat vegan butter in soup pot. Add celery, onion, garlic, and carrot and saute until soft, about 3 – 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and saute another minute.
- Add broth and bring to boil. Add salt and pepper.
- Add quadrucci noodles (chopped wonton wrappers) and allow to cook until they are firm to the bite – about 2-3 minutes. They will no longer appear translucent.
- Remove from heat and add parsley. Stir thoroughly. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve immediately – top with additional parsley, vegan Parmesan cheese or a squeeze of fresh lemon.
