  • 1 Pak Choi leaf, finely sliced or 1 or 2 cabbage leaves, finely diced
  • Small white onion, diced finely
  • 2 tsp. carrots grated
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. grated ginger
  • 1/2 package (25) wonton wrappers, or as needed
  • Water Wash - 2 tsp. of water + ¼ tsp. cornstarch
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 1 tsp. each: honey, sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp. oil for pan fry but leave wontons in flat triangles, or 3 to 4 cups oil for deep-frying, as needed


INSTRUCTIONS FOR VEGGIE & TOFU WONTONS
  • In  a sauté pan, heat 2 tsp. oil and sauté celery, carrots, onion, pak choy, ginger
  • When tender, season with soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, salt and pepper. Add mashed tofu into vegetables, mix well then let cool
  • Heat the oil for deep-frying while you are wrapping the wontons.
  • To fill the wontons, lay a wrapper in front of you so that it forms a diamond shape. With your finger place some water on all sides. Place a teaspoon of filling in the middle.
  • Fold the wonton in half from corner to opposite corner so it forms a triangle. If pan frying, then leave as flat triangle.  If deep frying, then bring the 2 opposite corners together and seal to make the wonton cone shape.
  • Deep-fry the wontons for around 2 minutes until they are golden and crispy.  Or pan fry wontons 2 min. per side.  They are now ready to serve and savour!  
The NEW LIFE Challenge Cookbook

The Alberni Vegetarian Supper Club is a culinary treat and then some.  Beginners or "old hands" at cooking are delighted with the international and local recipes.  

Who attends?  People from different cultural backgrounds and all age groups.  
What do they have in common?   They all want to made eating healthier a daily habit.
What if you cannot cook but want to sample?  We have several folks who love attending but don't cook.  Join us for dinner with a $3 donation to help us out with the food and rental costs.  

Each month, a suggested Vegetarian/Vegan themed recipe list is sent out (e.g., Crazy for Curries or Turning Japanese or Eat like a Canuck ) and  attendees select a recipe or 2 to make and share at the Supper Club meeting.  

Are you an absolute beginner?  No worries, vegetarian cooking tips and help is just an email away.  For demos and hands on experiences, feel free to come an hour earlier on the meeting day and learn some cooking techniques as we prepare sample dishes at the kitchen.  

Cooking demonstrations are held as requested and often get lively as folks happily jump in and participate,  Children and teens find it great fun and interesting to be able to easily create delectable dishes and wholesome treats.

Nutritional Nuggets and Healing Food Recipes are shared as seasonal and health concerns arise.  For example, during colder months, a Turmeric Latte (recipe following) is served for its anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties.  And if you’re feeling under the weather, a hot drink often feels great going down and the bonus is it helps you feel better faster!

Interested?  Join the fun every 3rd Thursday of the month (except summer break in July and August) at 6 p.m. at the Basement Kitchen of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, 4109 Kendall Street, Port Alberni, BCV9Y 4H9.  If you want to look over the monthly recipe list, simply send an email to pasda75@gmail.com
