  • Wonton Wrappers
  • Extra Firm Tofu
  • Soy Sauce
  • 4-6 Scallions
  • Honey
  • Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Egg

 

Directions

  • Cut 1/3 of the tofu from the block, wrap in paper towels and gently squeeze the water out then crumble into a medium sized mixing bowl.
  • Finely chop the scallions and add to the tofu.
  • Pour enough soy sauce over the tofu to coat it, mix well with the scallions.
  • Beat the egg in a small bowl.
  • Take a wonton wrapper and place it so that it is in a diamond shape instead of a square.
  • Add a pinch of the tofu scallion mix to the center of the wrapper.
  • Dip your finger in the egg and rub it along the bottom left & right sides of the wrapper.
  • Fold the top over and gently press the edges together making sure it’s sealed (it will now look like a triangle).
  • Place the sealed wonton on a baking sheet.
  • Repeat the process until your tofu scallion mix is gone (makes approx. 20-24).
  • Place about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a pot and heat on medium until bubbles appear. To test the oil place the edge of a wonton wrapper in the oil.  If it bubbles on impact your oil is ready.
  • Using a spider spatula or slotted spoon, carefully place 4 wontons at a time into the oil.  Flip after a few seconds (the edges will turn brown quickly-be careful not to burn them).
  • Take out of the oil and place on a paper towel lined baking sheet.

Honey Soy Sauce

  • Add 2 tablespoons of honey to about 1/3 – 1/2 cup soy sauce and wisk until fully incorporated.
  • Add some minced scallions.
