Homemade Cream Chese Wontons
We are trying to eat more plant based at our house. I know cream cheese is not at all plant based but we had not yet made wontons so we wanted to try a fairly simple recipe first. The verdict? We LOVE them!
Step 1: Buy your ingredients:
1 8 oz. package cream cheese
1 small package of green onions (green parts chopped)
1 package wonton wrappers
1 small bowl of water
2 cups of oil (we used 1/2 veg and 1/2 olive)
1 small pot to fry
Step 1: combine cream cheese and green onions.
Step 2: lay out wontons and fill each with 1/2 tablespoon of cream cheese mixture.
Step 3: Fold wontons into halves. We experimented with the envelope shape but I didn't like how they fried so we stuck with just folding them in half.
Step 4: Fry in the heated oil for about 30 seconds on each side and drain on a paper towel.
Step 5: EAT!
