Game Day Recipes: Avocado Jalapeño Wontons and Sriracha Cauliflower

Hello friends!

On Sunday I hosted a little get together. My friends and I gathered to play games while the ‘Big Game’ was on TV. From the feedback, my party treats were a hit. I made Roasted Sriracha Cauliflower Bites with Peanut Dipping Sauce from Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck and I whipped up some of my very own avocado jalapeño wontons. 

I won’t list a play by play on the Sriracha cauliflower, but I will say – you must give this recipe a try! It’s fairly quick and easy. You just cut up some cauliflower and make a simple water + flour batter, dip them, and roast them in the oven. Afterwards you toss it with a Sriracha sauce and serve with a peanut dipping sauce to cut some of the bite. This is easily going to become a goto recipe for me. I made this ahead of time and served it at room temperature. Easy!

Now, I had never actually made a wonton before this weekend. It was almost comical how many times I had to walk and up and down the aisles of Whole Foods before I found wonton wrappers! FYI – they’re in the refrigerated aisle next to tortillas. I must say avocado wontons are a deliciously ‘healthy’ vegan version of the standard wonton. Sure, you could fake it and use faux cream cheese, etc., but I wanted something a bit more natural. My guests loved them, and I think you will too! So go ahead and give this recipe a try!
