Jungle Wontons

A few weeks back I posted another recipe with wontons-an avocado wonton that I used to have at a restaurant in South Beach. Jungle wontons are an amazing dish I had in the jungle-the cook whipped these up one night and I loved them. I requested them until the wonton wrappers ran out-they were shipped from Cusco and the night we ran out I was sad.

I was able to enjoy these again recently and I decided to post the recipe-its so different and honestly tasty. Although any variation of a wonton to me is tasty.


– 1 pack of wonton wrappers

– 1 bunch of green onions

– 1 small red onion or half of a large one

– 1 potato diced

– some veggie oil

– 4 or 5 cloves of garlic

– a tiny bit of fresh ginger (more if you like it stronger)

– soy sauce

Cook down the potatoes a bit.

What to do next:

In a pan, heat your veggie oil and drop in your potato and red onion. Cook that down a bit, add the chopped garlic. Wash and cut your green onions while the mixture cooks and add it when the potatoes are cooked through. I don’t like to cook the green onions so much. When it’s done, take it off the stove and set up your wonton wrapping station. A bowl of water will be good enough to wet all the edges and seal the wontons.


Wonton Wrapping Station

Wrap the wontons and fry them in veggie oil till they get brown. I put soy sauce and sesame seed oil in the bottom of a bowl for dipping. Then I ate like 8 or 9 of them. Caution: they are addictive.

I’m in the jungle now for 3 weeks and I hope to come back with a few more delicious recipes!
