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
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.
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!
