    Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. In large bowl, combine turkey, garlic, ginger, tamari, chili, and nutmeg. Scoop heaped 1 tsp (5 mL) measures of turkey mixture into centre of each wonton wrapper. Paint wonton wrapper edges with a touch of water, fold into a triangle, then pinch 2 ends to create your dumpling, wetting wrappers with a touch of water to seal if necessary. Place on prepared baking sheet.


    Add stock, sesame oil, and green onions to large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce to medium heat, and gently add wontons. Continue to boil slowly for 5 to 10 minutes, until turkey is cooked through. Ladle into bowls and serve immediately.
