Steamed Vegetable Wontons

Steaming wontons is one of the very best ways to cook them because you do not have to cook them in oil or fat, and steaming them means the wonton wrapper will be lovely and soft. Steamed vegetable wontons can be added to wonton soup or served as they are, with a flavorful dipping sauce, as an appetizer, snack or side dish.

The following recipe for steamed vegetable wontons shows you how to make a tasty wonton filling with various veggies, as well as some soy sauce for a simple yet mouthwatering flavor. The vegetables are cooked briefly with the soy sauce, then this mixture goes into the wonton skins and the wontons are steamed until they are done.

The Perfect Sauce for Steamed Vegetable Wontons

This recipe also shows you how to make a nice sauce by sautéing garlic with chilies and green onions, and you can drizzle this over the steamed vegetable wontons or serve it on the side as a dipping sauce. Learning how to steam wontons is really easy and the best way to make this dish is to use a bamboo steamer basket. You can pick one up for a few dollars from any Asian food store and use them for making dumplings, steamed wontons, and even for steaming chicken, fish or other vegetables. Steamer baskets come in a variety of sizes and you can also stack them to steam multiple dishes at once.

A steamed wonton recipe will satisfy your hunger without filling you up too much.
