So it’s my one-year blog-iversary, yay! I’ve learned so much in the past year about blogging, webhosting, site speed, analytics and all the other boring stuff that comes along with writing a food blog. I’ve also learned a lot about cooking; constantly experimenting and trying new recipes and developing new techniques. I’ve come a long way, but still have a long way to go.
Looking back over my last year of posts, it’s really only been in the last three months that the blog has gained any traction and began to grow on its own. One of the biggest reasons for its sudden success was thanks to my recipe for vegan wonton soup going viral on Pinterest. I have no idea how or why it became so popular on Pinterest, but it’s been my most-viewed recipe every single day for the last three months.
I received a lot of questions on that post about where to buy vegan wonton wrappers. I imagine that a lot of those who commented didn’t realize that I live in Spain and we don’t have wonton wrappers in our supermarkets at all. I buy them imported from China at a speciality Asian supermarket and therefore wouldn’t be able to tell you where in America you can buy them. So I endeavored to find out how difficult it would be to make them at home if you are truly determined.
Turns out that they’re super easy. You only need three ingredients and they can be ready faster than it would take you to go to the store and buy them ready-made. I watched this video on how to make them and used my pasta maker to roll out the dough. If you’ve ever made fresh pasta at home before, then you’ll be amazed by how much easier it is to make wonton wrappers. Of course if you don’t have a pasta maker then you can use an old-fashioned rolling pin, or even a beer bottle like she does in the video.
You can use your freshly made wonton wrappers for a variety of recipes such as vegan wonton soup or vegan potstickers, as well as Japanese gyoza and Korean mandu.
