Veggie Wontons with Sriracha Honey Sauce

Ah, so we leave for a long trip to Turkey tomorrow to visit Mehmet’s family.  I had such grand intentions of writing a bunch of posts and scheduling them to publish while we’re away.  I really wanted this blog to stay up to date while we’re away.  Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. 🙁  Between a trip to Upstate NY last week, packing and work I just couldn’t get them done.  So, before we leave I’ll share this veggie wonton with sriracha honey sauce recipe with you.  I’m sure that I’ll be super inspired by all the food we eat on this trip, and I’ll be ready to share lots of new recipes when we return!  Feel free to follow along with our trip through our Instagram posts as well!

Who doesn’t love a wonton!?  Whenever we order chinese take out, we always add on an order of wontons or egg rolls.  There’s just something about these bite sized crunchy things that is SO addicting!  These veggie wontons with Sriracha honey sauce will satisfy that take out craving, plus they are baked which makes them much healthier.

Filling and shaping the wontons can actually be a bit tricky, but you’ll quickly get the hang of it.  You’ll definitely want a small bowl of water nearby to dip your fingers into to help you get the wonton wrappers to stick together.  You can also make these easier by just folding them in half into a triangle shape, they’ll taste just as great 🙂

These veggie wontons are also super versatile.  We make these all the time with whatever we happen to have in the house.  You know when you open this fridge and have something like 1/2 an onion, one pepper and a lonely carrot, make these!  These are a great opportunity to use of those bits of vegetables that are hard to make sense of otherwise.

I also LOVE this sriracha honey sauce.  I’m kind of a whimp when it comes to spice, but adding honey to the siracha gives it that sweet/spicy flavor we all love.

This recipe calls for celery salt, which adds really great flavor.  However, if you don’t have celery salt, you can definitely use regular salt instead.  You can also use olive oil instead of the sesame oil.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Begin by heating the sesame oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the onion, pepper, carrots and garlic and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add in the ginger and soy sauce and cook for another minute. Season with celery salt (can substitute regular salt) and black pepper.
  2. Let the vegetable mixture cool for a few minutes. Once it has cooled off a bit, begin to fill the wonton wrappers. Dip your finger in a bowl and water and wet the perimeter of the wrapper. Place a small amount of the vegetable filling in the middle of the wonton wrapper. Fold the wrapper in half to make a triangle, then bring the ends together to finish the shape. Continue filling each of the wrappers, then brush them with the egg wash. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until they start to brown a bit.
  3. While the wontons are baking, mix together the sriracha and honey to make your dipping sauce.
  4. Top the wontons with sesame seeds and chopped green onion, enjoy!
