Prepared Won Ton Wrappers

  • 7

Does anyone else love these things?
They are so darn versatile in the health conscious diet. The carb count is 32g for 12 (!) of them. 1 g fat, 0 sugar. What is not to love? I tend to eat 2 or 3 per dinner serving.

I use them, as well as egg roll wrappers, all the time and am looking for new ideas...especially fusion ideas...mmmmm.....

I use them steamed as in pot stickers, baked egg rolls, boiled in soups, and made up on the weekend and frozen (like today) for quick dinner additions. Meat, veg and lots of spice ideas welcomed!

Healthy, low sugar, low carb, low fat dipping sauces add additional versatility.

Let's talk Asian wraps!

  1. Those look great!
    I've used them for ravioli that i cut out with a small cookie cutter, and even just sliced a few to toss into soup as "noodles".

      Wonderful idea about slicing a few for noodles! I never thought about that. I bet thin sliced egg strips and a thin sliced wrapper would be terrific in an Asian style chicken broth soup with green onions. Very light.

        The "noodles" work great since i just want enough for the bowl and not to sit and get soggy in leftover soup. Happy accident discovery due to laziness and lack of actual pasta one night.....!

    2. These look interesting. They would be very carb friendly with black soy beans. I might add some red chili too.

      1. In a similar style, a friend of mine is experimenting with recipes in which she uses single sheets of phyllo in spanokopita type casseroles. In that vein, I'm thinking they cry out for spinach and feta. I'd like to try a buffalo chicken stuffing, too.

          Is your friend using the single phyllo sheets like a lasagne noodle kind of thing?

        2. sedimental, yes--just like a thin lasagna layer.
