So last time I made something like this it was cream cheese wontons, and ALL YALL KEPT ASKING FOR WAS DANG CRAB RANGOONS! Which I don’t blame you, they’re delicious and were always a favorite of mine. I’m just so happy they’re easy to veganize!
I’m really excited to announce that this recipe is in collaboration with Follow Your Heart! They’re one of my favorite brands, and I’ve gotten so many requests to make more recipes using their products from y’all, since they’re so accessible across the US. The product I used in this recipe is their cream cheese! It’s so dang good and really sends this recipe over the top!
These wontons are so easy to make. I personally love jackfruit in them so that’s what I used, but you can use oyster mushrooms, canned artichokes, hearts of palm, mock fish, etc. just as easily! Also have you ever made homemade sweet and sour sauce? Because trust me it’s incredible. It’s perfect for dipping these in, but also great for stir frys and a bunch of things!
Crab Rangoon’s with Sweet & Sour Sauce
- 2 tubs follow your heart cream cheese room temperature
- 1 can brined jackfruit drained/rinsed/very finely chopped
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp sugar

Sweet & Sour Sauce
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- ¾ cup light brown sugar packed
- ¾ cup rice vinegar

For the sweet and sour sauce, add all ingredients besides the corn starch slurry to a pot over medium high heat until boiling. Add your corn starch slurry, mix very well. Boil for 30 seconds, then reduce the heat to low and stir frequently for a few minutes to your desired thickness. Remove from heat.
For the crab rangoons, mix your cream cheese, jackfruit, sesame oil, sugar, salt, and chopped scallions together until well combined.
Take your wonton wrapper and add about ½ tbsp of filling to the center. Fold in half, then push the corners together and seal with water. You can easily make these into whatever shapes you’d like/are comfortable with though!
Deep fry in 375F oil for 3-5 minutes until golden brown. Serve with sweet and sour sauce.
