🌱To make the wontons, take a wrapper & lay on a flat surface. 🌱Using your fingers, coat the edges of the wrapper with a little water. 🌱Add about a teaspoon of the spinach-tofu mixture on the center of the wrapper
🌱Carefully bring up the four points of the wrapper so they all meet in the middle & join them on top to form a pouch
🌱Keep assembling until all the filling is used. 🌱Place wontons on a baking sheet & keep them covered with a damp kitchen or paper towel to keep them from drying out.
🌱Heat oil in a deep wok. Once the oil is ready for frying, around 350°F, carefully fry wontons, in batches. Once they turn golden, remove wontons using a slotted spoon. Or air fry them according to your air fryer instructions. Serve with your favorite hot sauce!
