This was a good vegetarian substitute for crab rangoons, and I think they tasted much better. Sometimes I think using other ingredients to make vegetarian dishes of food that are traditionally filled with meat are really better, they are more creative and have a better flavor, most things I have made have been great.
This recipe is from Mary Makes Dinner.
-15 wonton wrappers
-1/2 cup raw cashews
-1 tablespoon tahini
-1 Tbsp lime juice
-1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
-1 tablespoon hot sauce
-1/2 cup water
-3 scallions, thinly sliced
-1/2 red pepper
-salt and pepper
|Mix the cashews, tahini, lime juice, soy sauce, hot sauce, salt and pepper in |
a blender.Mix in a little bit of water at a time as needed.
|Combine the cashew mixture with the red pepper and green onion.|
|Put a spoonful of the mixture in the middle of a wonton wrapper.|
I had to cut my wonton wrappers into fourths so they weren't so big.
Get 2 sides of the wrapper wet, and fold the wrapper into a triangle.
Then pinch 2 of the corners together.
|Heat oil for a few minutes.|
Drop in the wontons, heat until golden brown, about 4
minutes per side for me.
I dipped these in soy sauce, which was really good. The shell was crispy and the inside was soft, it was a good combination. They were't too spicy, and didn't have any overwhelming flavor. It took me a little more time than I expected, there were a lot of ingredients to mix, but it still took less than 30 minutes, and I thought it was worth it.
