Ingredients

  • 14 oz Extra-firm Tofu pressed for at least 15 minutes
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 14 oz Canned Bean Sprouts
  • 2 Carrots peeled
  • 1 bunch Green Onions
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger Powder
  • 24 Vegan Wonton Wrappers
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil

Instructions

  • Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a skillet. Crumble tofu into the skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until golden, about 3 to 5 minutes. (Tofu should resemble scrambled eggs when done cooking.
  • While the tofu cooks, dice the bean sprouts and carrots and slice the green onions. Place all in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the tofu into the veggie bowl and stir in the soy sauce, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and ginger.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Working one at a time, place a wonton wrapper square on your work surface and add a heaping spoonful of filling. Dip your finger into the water and trace along the edges of the wrapper. (Note: the water is what will make the wrapper stick together, so don't be stingy!)
  • Fold one corner of the wrapper across the filling to the opposite corner, making a triangle. Firmly press all edges to make sure they are sealed.
  • Move assembled wontons to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or tin foil. Lightly brush olive oil on top of each prepared wonton.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Watch carefully so that they don't burn. Enjoy!
