Wonton Wrapper With Gochujang


A harmonious blend of Japanese and Korean flavors, this dish combines the richness of sesame oil with the spiciness of gochujang, all wrapped in a delicate wonton wrapper.

Cuisine: Japanese-Korean Fusion
Servings: 4-6


  • 1 cup cooked tofu, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup cooked mushrooms (shiitake or cremini), sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions (green onions)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon gochujang (Korean chili paste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 package wonton wrappers (usually found in the produce section)


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the tofu, mushrooms, scallions, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, and gochujang. Mix well.
  • Lay a wonton wrapper on a flat surface. Place a small spoonful of the filling in the center of the wrapper.
  • Fold the wrapper into a triangle by bringing the two opposite corners together to form a point. Press the edges together to seal the filling inside.
  • Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  • Place the wontons on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving some space between each one. 
  • Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
