1 package of vegan almond cream cheese (with chives preferable)
½ Medium white onion
½ Red, Yellow or Bell Pepper
1 celery stalk
1 Garlic clove
1 teaspoon dry oregano
2 Shitake Mushrooms
Vegan Wonton Squares
1 bowl of water
1 Cup of Olive Oil
Chop all vegetables very fine. Combine them in a bowl with vegan cream cheese. Place a half a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture in the center of the square. With a finger wet the edges of the Wonton square. Fold the wonton over the cream cheese mixture so that the wonton forms a triangle. Pinch the wetted edges to seal in mixture. Fold over each point to make a square.
Pour oil into a small saucepan that so that at least half of the filled wonton will be covered in oil. Heat oil to medium heat. Fry wontons on each side until golden brown.
Use any type of Asian dipping sauce.
About the Joyful Vegan Feast
The Joyful Vegan Feast is a cooking class, taught by Pastor Brian Merritt, at the Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center on Saturdays at 3 pm. Join us any Saturday for the class at the Center, 1918 Union Ave. in Chattanooga TN 37404. If you can’t join us for the class, we’ll upload video from the class every Tuesday evening.
The Joyful Vegan Feast takes its name from a line in the Presbyterian communion service. We are reminded that all people will come together in unity from East, West, North and South to sit at table with each other, Luke 13:29. “This is a Joyful feast of the divine’s people.”
A vegan diet consists of fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, seeds, beans, and the thousands of other good things the earth provides to us. What it doesn’t include is animal products — flesh, eggs, milk, honey, etc. Veganism goes much further than simply dietary choices. Veganism is the belief that humans do not have the right to steal the lives, freedom, reproduction or bodily products of non-human animals. Explicit in such theft is violence. As a community radically devoted to peace, veganism is an expression of our faith at Mercy Junction.
