Making wontons turned out to be such fun when I experimented with these varieties. Two are vegetarian, one includes salmon. When you feel like playing, give them a try. They are really very easy.

Instructions
  1. Mix the dipping sauce ingredients together and refrigerate for an hour.
  2. Assemble your ingredients on parchment paper or in small bowls, including a small bowl of water.
  3. Saute the chopped mushroom with some of the onion and a splash of soy sauce.
  4. Remove a portion of the finished mushrooms for mushroom wontons and set aside.
  5. Add the soy crumbles to the pan, and heat through, then put in another bowl.
  6. Wash your hands thoroughly, then you are ready to assemble.
  7. Set two to four wontons on parchment paper or a clean flat surface.
  8. Put a spoonful of your heated soy/mushroom mix onto the center of a wonton. Add a dash4 to 6 of the chopped green onion.
  9. Lightly wet the edges of the wonton, then fold over. Press together and fold up. (I added another spot of water to be sure they stayed)
  10. Set aside while you do more of them.
  11. When they are all prepared, cook by boiling in water for 5 minutes or by frying in a little oil until browned.
  12. Drain on a paper towel briefly.
