I've been craving a version of these rangoons for a while now...something we used to get from the frozen section when I was younger. I decided to start looking up healthier versions of it and then come up with some modifications of my own. Crab is a sustainable seafood, whose season runs all year long - which makes it a great pick (be sure to get the real thing, not imitation crab - or start right from the source and pick up a live crab down at the fisherman's wharf!).
Make Your Meal Even Healthier Tip:
Baking these rangoons instead of deep frying them saves a TON on the calorie count, and substituting the vegan cream cheese for the full or low-fat cream cheese eliminates the dairy as well. The BEST idea is to share them. Make them a fancy appetizer at your next get together, because they're so good you'll eat a whole batch on your own.
