  • 110 g firm tofu
  • 13 wonton wrappers
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 200 g softened vegan cream cheese
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoon vegan worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoon sugar - I’ve used raw coconut sugar
  • Fresh grated ginger
  • Salt to taste


  • Leave cream cheese to soften at room temperature and press tofu to remove excess water
  • Grate tofu and carrots with a box grater and place in a large bowl
  • To the same bowl, add chopped spring onions and grate in the garlic and ginger to taste. Add all sauces, seasme oil, sugar, cream cheese with salt to taste and mix together using a disposable glove or a spoon
  • Place a spoon of the mixture into the centre of a wonton wrapper. Dip your finger in water and dab all four sides
  • To fold, bring two opposite corners together to form a triangle and seal the edges with your fingers. Bring each remaining corner to the middle and seal sides together again to create a little pocket
    Repeat the above with the remaining mixture until all the rangoon’s are wrapped

Air fryer crab rangoons

  • Preheat air fryer to 180°C/350°F
  • Spray the bottom of the airfryer with oil. Place rangoon's in the air fryer so theyre not touching and generously spray with oil along the top and sides.
    Cook for 10-12 minutes until they’re golden brown

Deep frying crab rangoons

  • Heat a pot with a high smoke oil such as avocado oil, grapeseed oil or canola oil
  • Carefully drop crab rangoons in the oil one at a time, making sure not to overfill the pot so they have room to fry
  • Fry for a few minutes until they are golden brown
  • Enjoy with sweet chili or your favourite dipping sauce and enjoy!
