Ingredients
  • ½ tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • ½ tsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • ½ lb. extra firm tofu drained and pressed for at least 15 minutes
  • 1 scallion chopped
  • 15-20 vegan wonton wrappers
Instructions
  1. Heat vegetable oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add garlic and ginger. Sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Crumble tofu into skillet and sauté another 5 minutes.
  4. Add scallion and remove from heat.
  5. Place a wonton wrapper on a work surface at a 45 degree angle (so one of the corners points at you).
  6. Place about 1 teaspoon of tofu mixture into the center of wrapper.
  7. Moisten upper surface of the wrapper about the edges.
  8. Fold bottom corner upwards and side corners inward to meet bottom corner.
  9. Fold top corner downward. Press edges together to seal.
  10. Transfer to a bamboo steamer and repeat with remaining wrappers until all of the filling is used.
  11. Steam for about 5 minutes, or until outer surface becomes shiny and a few bubbles form.
  12. Serve with soy sauce, or your favorite dipping sauce.
Recipe Notes

Check the label on your wonton wrappers to keep these vegan. I usually have luck finding vegan wrappers at Asian markets.
