After making the wanton tacos we had a won of wonton wrappers left over. Since my son loves breads and pastas I figured I might be able to trick him into eating vegetables if I stuffed some wantons with veggies. All I can say is that it was a huge success! Not to mention the hubby loved them too! He wanted to give these six stars because he thought it deserved one more then the tacos but I had to lay down the law and keep it consistent with 5 🙂 ALSO this recipe is from weight watchers and one serving of 4 wantons are only worth 3 points (including sauce) It’s just a win all around!
“This wanton dinner is better then the tacos because they are a little less messy to eat and they taste lighter. The sauce makes it exceed expectations because it’s simple enough to not overpower the vegetables but flavorful enough to make it perfect. I did not expect these to be better then the tacos but Kelsey has done it again!”
– Cooking Spray
– 2 tsp. olive oil
– 1 1/2 cups of cole slaw mix (shredded green cabbage and carrots)
– 2 cloves of garlic, minced
– 2 medium uncooked scallions, minced and divided
– 2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
– 24 wanton wrappers (This is half of the package if you get the 12 oz pkg.)
– 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
– 1 tsp. sesame oil.
1.) Preheat your oven to 350 F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray
2.) Heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add slaw mix, garlic, and one of the scallions. Sauté for approximately 2 minutes until the cabbage begins to wilt. (It’s important to not burn the garlic so I would add that last. There is nothing worse then burnt garlic)
3.) Remove from heat and add 2 tsp of soy sauce
4.) Place wrappers on a flat surface and add about 1tsp of vegetable mixture in the middle. (My husband asked me to make extra and fill them more next time so you can experiment here.)
5.) Moisten the edges of each wrapper with moist fingertips. Fold to make a triangle shape and press the edges together to seal them.
6.) Place folded wantons on your baking sheet and spritz a little cooking oil over the top of the wantons. Don’t over do this because you don’t want to make it oily. The purpose of spraying them is to get then crisp and golden brown. We don’t want to end up oven frying them haha!
7.) Bake 10-13 minutes until golden brown.
8.) In a bowl mix 1/4 cup of soy sauce, scallion, and sesame oil. Serve sauce with wantons and enjoy!
