  • 30 wonton wrappers
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 cup chopped bean sprouts
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup mashed tofu
  • 1/4 cup chopped baby corn
  • 4oz water chestnuts, finely chopped
  • 1 green onions, minced
  • 4 shiitake mushrooms, minced
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp minced rep pepper
  • 1 tbsp minced cilantro
  • 1 egg
  • vegetable oil

In a hot pan add oil and heat. Add carrot, cabbage, sprouts, garlic, corn, red pepper, mushrooms, and ginger. Sauté on high for about two minutes, stirring constantly, until vegetables are slightly softened. Add black pepper and soy. Remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly. Stir in tofu, cilantro, green onions, water chestnut, and egg. 1 tbsp flour can be substituted for egg to help bind filling.

Brush wonton wrappers with water, filling with about 2 tsp filling, and seal edges. Fold wrapper in half, then fold corners together to form won-ton.

This can either be deep fried, or boiled in vegetable stock until they float for a soup.
