Spinach- Ricotta Wontons:
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- olive oil
- 2 bags baby spinach, cleaned
- ½ cup ricotta cheese
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
- ½ tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
- sundried tomatoes, chopped
- 1 package square or round Wonton wrappers
- Olive oil spray
Sauté garlic in a small amount of olive oil. Add spinach and salt (to taste) and cook until spinach is wilted. Drain well, squeeze out water then let cool.
Add ricotta, basil, mint, sundried tomatoes and pepper to spinach mixture and mix well.
Lay out one wonton wrapper, keeping the rest covered with a damp cloth so they do not dry out. In the center of the wrapper, place ½ tablespoon of spinach mixture. Spread water over the edges of the wrapper and fold into a triangle. Ensure that edges are tightly sealed by pressing down with a fork.
To bake: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay out wontons on a baking tray, and coat with olive oil spray. Bake for 15 minutes, turn over and bake for another 10 minutes, until crisp.
