I am obsessed with this recipe. I was craving wontons the other week, finally found wonton wrappers at the grocery store, and experimented with some of the ingredients I had on hand (I couldn’t find any wonton recipes that used cabbage and carrots, but they sounded good and so I figured I’d give them a try). The wontons were so incredible that I couldn’t stop eating them, which is probably a bad thing since they’re fried.

Paired with rice and a vegetable side, these wontons make a great main course, but they’re also a perfect finger food to put on an appetizer try at a party.

  7. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium-sized pot (about about ½ inch deep) over medium-high heat.
  8. Drop about 6 wontons at a time into the hot oil and cook, turning once with a slotted spoon, for a few minutes, until the wonton wrappers are lightly browned a crispy.
  9. Remove wontons from oil with a slotted spoon and dry on a paper towel.
Notes
The wontons do take some time (and patience) to wrap and fry, but they are so worth it. Also...this recipe makes a LOT of wontons.
Great served with rice, a side of veggies, and your favorite dipping sauce.

  1. Those look easy and really good. I hate making egg rolls because they make such a mess these look much easier.
