Vegan Cheesy-Dog Wontons
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Snack
Phase: 1
Serves: 4 servings
  • wonton wrappers - use as many wrappers as wontons you anticipate to eat (or maybe a few more)
  • plant-based hot dogs - one dog yields about twelve bite-sized slices
  • plant-based cheese shreds - the cheddar variety is the favorite in our house
  • a small saucer of water - for sealing the wontons
  • your favorite dipping sauce - (or even more than one)
  1. Preheat the oven to Bake at 350 degrees.
  2. First, slice the not-dogs into bite sized pieces.
  3. On a clean dry surface, spread out the wonton wrappers, where you will have space to work.
  4. Gently sprinkle the cheese into the center of each wonton wrapper and place a slice of the not-dog on top.
  5. Dip your finger into the saucer of water and then swipe all four sides of the flat wonton wrapper to moisten them.
  6. Fold the wonton diagonally, seal the sides together, and then fold over both long ends into the center of the wonton.
  7. Seal the folded ends as well with just a little more water, then place each wonton on a baking sheet.
  8. This technique takes a little learning to get a handle on. My first few wontons looked a little messy, but I picked up the technique easily after my first few tries.
  9. Bake the wontons in the oven for 7-10 minutes, and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
