Ginger Garlic Wonton Packages

I had some interesting wontons from the local food co-op and knew I had to try to make my own.

Mine were better!

  • 1 head nappa cabbage, shredded
  • 1 bulb garlic, minced or put through a press
  • 2 TBS fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 scallions, chopped - use white and green parts
  • 1/8 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 2 cups peanut oil
I threw the first five ingredients into my electric chopper to get it into a fine slaw.

Spoon into wonton wrappers.

Fold the corners to the middle like an envelope and seal together with water. I found that wetting my hands slightly before handling the wrappers helped a lot.

Fry in peanut oil on medium high heat. You want them to cook quickly but not burn.

Serve on their own as they are really flavorful, or you could serve with sweet pepper dipping sauce.

These were easy and quick to make, and DELICIOUS!!

It is really easy to use too much scallion in this recipe, so I would recommend not using more than 2 small scallions or it will over power everything.
