My little squirt has been begging me for weeks to make wontons. So what the heck, let’s make them. Who could tell such a good girl that she can’t have wontons? So fine, we are making them tonight, but in two styles because I’m that good. First up, make the wontons.
8 oz cream cheese
6 oz imitation crab
little bit o’ minced onion
sprinkle o’ onion powder
50 wonton wrappers
Mix all ingredients but the wrappers. Ohh nice n gooey.
Grab the wontons and time to fill! Place a little bowl of water in your workspace. Place a teaspoon of the filling in the middle of the square. Use your finger to brush water around all sides of the wrapper. Whoever said you can’t play with your food???
Fold in a half.
Twist around and make into whatever shapes you want. If you need help with this go look it up on YouTube. I am not your mommy.
Look how purty!
Time to fry them up.
Suggested oil per TIIMMMMAAAYYYY. Fry in batches.
Now for part duex. I like a good wonton, but you know I likes me some healthy stuff too. Wonton soup.
Head of bok choy – chopped
3 green onions – diced
32 oz beef broth
As many homemade won tons as your little heart desires.
Heat broth to a boil. Throw in wontons, boil for a few.
Add the green stuff. Do not cook too long and serve hot.
Time for the taste test ….
I’m gonna say she likes it. She made all of the wontons!
