Jen’s thoughts and Recommendations:

This recipe is by far my most requested dish to cook, as it is both beautiful and tasteful;.  You can serve this surprisingly simple recipe as an impressive appetizer or show your significant other how much you love them by serving this as your main dish with a side of rice.  Your friends will ask you for the recipe and your boyfriend (or significant other) will ask for a kiss.

Tips:

  • Wonton wrappers can be found next the tofu in the produce section of your grocery store.
  • If you don’t want use fresh spinach you can use frozen spinach, once you thaw and strain it.
  • You can fold in the wrappers (wet your fingers slightly), you can leave the wrappers spread out, or you can shape the wrappers in different angles.
