Baked Crab Puffs

Baked Crab Puffs, Vegan and Non-Vegan Non-Dairy Delights!

baked crab puffs

This weekend I went all out for my version of savory take-out. My previous post explored a vegetarian version of Oyster Mushroom Egg Foo Young. What a great savory meal that was. If you saw the post, you'll noticed that I served it with these incredible, and flavorful Baked Crab Puffs. This no-fry, non-dairy option is not only delicious but also a healthier alternative to traditional fried versions. Today I'm sharing two ways to make these puffs. One version is traditional but non-dairy, and the other is completely vegan - both are no-fry, baked delights!


Health Benefits of Ingredients:
  • Hearts of Palm (or Fresh Crab for Non-Vegan Version): Rich in fiber and low in calories, hearts of palm contribute to digestive health. Fresh crab provides a good source of protein and essential minerals.

  • Vegan Cream Cheese: Plant-based and lower in saturated fats, providing a dairy-free alternative.

  • Red Bell Peppers: Packed with vitamins A and C, red bell peppers boost immune function and skin health.

  • Green Onions: A good source of antioxidants and vitamin K, promoting bone health.



Baked Crab Puffs Recipes:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup shredded hearts of palm (or fresh crab for non-vegan version)

  • 1 cup vegan cream cheese

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red bell peppers

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions

  • Wonton wraps

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Cooking spray


Instructions:

  1. Preheat Your Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). This ensures that your vegan crab puffs bake evenly to golden perfection.

  2. Prepare the Filling: In a mixing bowl, combine shredded hearts of palm (or fresh crab), vegan cream cheese, red bell peppers, green onions, salt, and pepper. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.

  3. Fill the Wonton Wraps: Take a wonton wrap and place a spoonful of the filling in the center. Moisten the edges with water and fold it in half, forming a triangle. Press the edges to seal.

  4. Arrange on Baking Sheet: Place the filled wontons on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, ensuring they are evenly spaced.

  5. Lightly Spray and Bake: Lightly spray the tops of the wontons with cooking spray. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.

  6. Serve and Enjoy: Remove from the oven and let the crab puffs cool for a few minutes. Serve them alongside our recently featured Oyster Mushroom Egg Foo Young for a delightful and satisfying meal.
