Intro: Mushroom Wontons
This recipe is one of my favorites. They taste delicious and are perfect for parties. Also, they are pretty easy to make. This recipe makes about 30 wontons.
Step 1: Ingredients
12 oz Cremini Mushrooms chopped
1/2 cup Marsala Wine
1 tbs Cream Cheese
1 oz parmesan
Enough canola oil to cover a pan about a 1/4 of an inch
Step 2: Cooking the Mushrooms
To cook the mushrooms, cover the bottom of the pan in a very thin layer of canola oil. Allow the oil to heat for 1 to 3 minutes. Then add your mushrooms to the oil and allow to simmer for 5-6 minutes, stirring often. Next, add the shallots and a little salt. Cook for about 1 minute and then add the half cup of wine. Let the mixture simmer for 4 minutes. Sorry that I forget to take pictures during this step.
Step 3: Food Proccesor
Pur the mixture into the food processor and leave it on for about 30 second or until fairly smooth. It should be a little thicker than baby food but not a lot thicker. Next, add the parmesan and cream cheese. Turn on the food processor for about 10 more seconds. Remove from processor and pour into a small bowl.
Step 4: Creating the Wontons
Get the wanton wrappers, your mushroom mixture, and a little bowl of water. Place a small spoonful of the mushroom mixture in the middle of the wanton wrapper. Dunk your finger in the water and spread it around the outside of the wanton. Fold the wrapper in half to make a triangle. Set aside and repeat this step until you have made all of your wantons.
Step 5: Frying
Fill a large pan with about 1/4 of an inch of canola oil. Place about 5-6 wontons in the hot oil. Leave on 1 side for about 3 minutes or unti light brown. Flip and fry on the next side for about a minute and a half. Repeat until all of the wontons have been fried. Allow them to cool for a few minutes Before eating. Serve and enjoy.
