Recipe for Vegan Crab Rangoon

Until Every Cage

I worked at a Chinese restaurant when I was in high school and I loved helping make the crab rangoons, but I haven’t made them since. I had a craving for this today and was trying to figure out what to use for the ‘crab’ part of the rangoon. Tempeh, maybe? Then it hit me: JACKFRUIT! Jackfruit is a sweet fruit, is dense in nutrients and is absolutely delicious (and cheap!).
