Low Carb Crab Rangoon
I love Chinese take-out food but I don't do it too often anymore because of the carbs. To satisfy that craving I have been experimenting with a few of my favorite Chinese take-out foods. My number one favorite appetizer are those Crab Rangoon. Those crispy things filled with a creamy cheese, slightly sweet crab filling - you know what I am talking about, right? I love them! Well, here you go these are pretty darn close the real thing. They are made with cream cheese, canned crab meat (you could use imitation crab but the carb will be higher), seasonings and then wrapped in Cut Da Carb flatbread. Yep, that's right this is a low carb flat bread that is thin enough to replicate a wonton or eggroll wrapper, and are low carb and keto friendly! They took only 5 minutes to fry in my Air Fryer. If you don't have an air fryer, that is okay, you can bake them in the oven. If you haven't tried Cut Da Carb flatbread, you need to! They are so versatile. I have made eggrolls, breakfast pizza, chips, and enchiladas with them.
Low Carb Rangoon
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (6 ounce) can crabmeat, drained and flaked *
1 green onion, minced
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
3 to 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon sweetener, such as Swerve (optional)*
4 sheets of Cut Da Carb flatbread, each cut into 6 squares (making 24 squares) *Notes: - You can use imitation crab meat but the carb count will be higher. - I like the filling to be a little sweet like the ones we get at the Chinese take out. If you don't care for the extra sweetness, you may omit.
Directions: 1. Combine garlic, cream cheese, crab, green onions, Worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce in a bowl. 2. To prevent flatbread squares from drying, prepare only 1 or 2 rangoon at a time. (Keep a towel over the other flatbread pieces while you fill and make 1 or 2 at a time). Place 1 teaspoon of filling onto the center of each Cut Da Carb square. Moisten the edges with water and fold the Cut Da Carb square diagonally to form a triangle, pressing edges to seal. To Air Fry: 1. Set your Air Fryer to 380 degrees F.
2.3. Brush or spray the tops and bottoms of the rangoon with olive oil or avocado all.
3. Place 6 to 8 rangoon in to the air fryer basket (the number of rangoon you place in the air fryer depends on how big you made the rangoon, and the size of your air fryer). Place as many as you can to fill the bottom of the basket (do not layer on top each other).
4. Bake for 5 minutes (check after 3 minutes as the cook quickly). You may need to shake or move the rangoon around so they cook evenly. Bake until they start to turn golden brown. To Bake In Oven: 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 2. Arrange the rangoon on the baking sheet and lightly spray or brush with olive or avocado oil. Turn to rangoon to the other side and spray or brush with oil.
3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve with soy sauce, hot mustard, or sugar-free orange sauce
This Air Fryer is prefect for making your favorite fried foods without the mess and extra oil
