Logan was watching Ni Hao Kai Lan the other day and came to me asking to make chinese dumplings. So when I went to the store I got a few things and made up my own dish. Since I wasn't about to make homemade wrappers, I got WonTon wrappers and they worked pretty well. Tonight we made Wontons 3 ways- baked, boiled and dessert. I also made some steamed tilapia with seasoned salt. Yum!
I picked up a bag of shredded slaw (broccoli, cabbage and carrots) and added some ginger, garlic and soy sauce and cooked it up. Used a bit of egg white to close the wrappers and folded them up. The baked ones were too chewy- almost stale like. They'd be better fried but we're trying to eat healthier.
The boiled ones were yummy! I boiled them in some veggie broth with some soy sauce added for extra flavor.
The dessert ones had a square of Hershey Dark and a vegan marshmallow piece(soo good!) and I dusted them with powdered sugar with a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Mmm. Again, would have been better fried but came out tasty all the same!
Logan was happy though and ate his entire dinner.
