Holiday season is in full swing and whether you’re throwing the shindigs or attending them, these spinach and artichoke wontons are the perfect party food. Bring them to a potluck or offer to provide some vegan treats if you’re going to an omnivore party and wow everyone there with how amazing vegan appetizers can be!
These babies look pretty fancy pants but are easy to throw together and bake fast so you don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen. You can even make the filling the day before and really save yourself some time. Feel free to take a page from that old Rice Krispie Treat commercial and just pretend you were slaving over them for hours.
The nice thing about these is that they’re baked, not fried, so you can chow down without the guilt. In the time of year when pies, cookies and candy abound, you can snack on these little pockets of yum and not feel bad at all.
They look like pretty little packages so they’re perfect for a holiday theme table. Serve them with dipping sauces like sweet chili, spicy mustard, tamari or anything else you fancy!

Holiday season is in full swing and whether you're throwing the shindigs or attending them, these spinach and artichoke wontons are …
- 8 OZ Vegan Cream Cheese Softened
- 1 CUP Fresh Spinach Finely Chopped
- 3/4 CUP Red Bell Pepper Finely Chopped
- 3/4 CUP Marinated Artichokes Finely Chopped
- 1/2 CUP Vegan Mayo
- 1/2 TSP Lemon Juice
- 1/2 TSP Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
- 1/2 TSP Garlic Powder
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 30-40 Wonton Wrappers
- 1 TBSP Earth Balance Butter Melted
- Paprika for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350° and lightly grease a cookie sheet.
- Combine cheese, spinach, bell pepper, artichoke, mayo, lemon juice & spices in a large bowl until well incorporated.
- Take a heaping teaspoon of the cheese mixture and place it in the center of a wonton wrap.
- Use the melted butter to lightly coat the perimeter of the wonton wrap then pinch together the four corners in the center and press the edges together. Repeat until all the mixture is gone, laying each wonton on the cookie sheet (you will probably need more than one cookie sheet or you'll need to cook in batches)
- Lightly brush the tops of each wonton with melted butter and bake for 6-7 minutes, making sure the top browns but doesn't burn.
- Remove from oven and sprinkle with paprika.
