Vegan Crab Rangoon

CR chopsticks

Before I stopped eating meat, crab rangoon was one of my favorite food items to get from the Chinese take out place. For two years before I stopped eating meat, I decided to give up eating fried food. So, it has been 3+ years since I’ve had crab rangoon. Lately I have been craving this delicious treat, so I decided to put a vegan twist on it and share it with you lovely people.

 

So, here is a super simple, tasty crab rangoon recipe!

 

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

CR ingredients

Ingredients:

1 cup shredded artichoke

Wonton wrappers (make sure they are vegan)

1 tbsp green onion

1 carton (8oz.) vegan cream cheese (I used Tofutti)

24 fl.oz sunflower oil

1 1/2 tsp old bay

1/4 tsp soy sauce

1/4 tsp salt

dash of pepper

water to seal wonton wrappers

Instructions:

*Makes about 24 crab rangoons

Drain and rinse artichoke hearts.

With a fork, shred the artichoke hearts and add to a bowl.

To the bowl with artichokes add cream cheese, green onion, soy sauce, old bay, salt, and pepper and mix to combine.

Add about 2 tsp of the mixture onto the wonton wrapper. Wet the four edges of the wrapper with water and fold using this technique:

Add sunflower oil to a sauce pan and turn the heat up to a little more than medium high.

Test the oil with a pinch of flour to make sure it is ready. Once ready, add crab rangoons to the oil.

Let fry for about 3 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from oil with slotted metal spoon and dab off excess oil with paper towel.
