To honor Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and highlight the diversity and deliciousness of AAPI heritage, we are excited to share delicious Asian plant-based recipes contributed by our very own Impossible Foods team members!
This recipe comes to us from Gwen Su. Gwen is originally from Taiwan, and in her words, “is obsessed with veganizing delicious dishes from different cultures.” She’s been completely plant-based for three years, “and hasn't suffered from protein deficiency.” Great job, Gwen!
More about this tasty dish from Gwen, “Wontons are one of the most popular comfort foods in Asia, and each region has its own unique flavor. Red Oil-style is my favorite. The aroma of the Sichuan peppers and the kick of different chili peppers makes every bite full of excitement. There are three key ingredients in this recipe: Impossible™ Burger, homemade Red Oil, and freshly ground Sichuan peppers. Put them all together and you are in for a treat.” We think you’ll agree that this sounds absolutely delicious!

- 12 安士 Package Impossible Burger
- 1/3 Ounce (7 Grams) Grated Ginger
- 1 1/3 Ounce (37 Grams) Sliced Scallion
- 1 1/2 茶匙 Egg Replacer
- 1 Tablespoon plus 1 1/2 Teaspoons Sesame Oil
- 1 湯匙 Rice Wine
- 1/4 茶匙 Salt
- 1/4 茶匙 White Pepper
- 1 湯匙 Cornstarch
- 1 Package Wonton Wrappers
- 3 Garlic Cloves, Grated
- 2 湯匙 Soy Sauce
- 1 Tablespoon plus 1 1/2 Teaspoons White Vinegar
- 1 1/2 茶匙 Sugar
- 2 湯匙 Chili Oil
- 1/4 茶匙 Freshly Ground Sichuan pepper
Mix the Impossible Burger Filling
Prepare the egg replacer with water according to package instructions. Mix well. In a bowl, mix together the Impossible Burger, grated ginger, 1 ounce of the sliced scallion, the prepared egg replacer, 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil, the rice wine, salt, white pepper, and cornstarch. Mix until well-combined and the texture of the mixture becomes sticky.
Fill and Shape the Wontons
Sprinkle a little flour on your work surface so the wonton doesn't stick to your counter. Place about a heaping tablespoon of Impossible Burger filling in the center of a wonton wrapper. Tap a little bit of water on your finger tip, wet the top edge of the wrapper, and then fold the wonton in half. Press the edge so the filling doesn't escape. Tap a little bit of water on your finger tip again and wet the right and left sides of the wonton. Press the edges, fully sealing the filling inside the wonton. Fold the right and left sealed sides of the wonton towards one another creating a shell shape, and then press the overlapped part of the wonton together to seal. Repeat with all filling until you are done. You can sprinkle some flour in a container and freeze the wontons for future use at this point in the process if desired.
Make the Red Oil Sauce
Mix together grated garlic, soy sauce, white vinegar, sugar, chili oil, freshly ground Sichuan pepper, and the remaining sliced scallions and sesame oil in a bowl, and then try the sauce for spice level. Add water if needed to adjust the spice concentration.
Boil the Wontons
Cook wontons in boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove from the water.
Top and Serve
Drizzle the red oil sauce on top of wontons, serve and enjoy!
