Ingredients

8 large asparagus spears

8 large wonton/egg roll wrappers

8 tablespoons cream cheese

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Oil, for frying

Directions

Par cook asparagus: Bring a large saucepan filled with water to a boil. Place asparagus spears into water and cook for 30 seconds. Remove from boiling water and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside. (Alternatively, you could microwave the asparagus spears for about 20 seconds to soften slightly).

Assemble wonton fries: Mix cream cheese and garlic powder together. Assemble each asparagus fry as noted above.

Fry: Heat 3 or 4 tablespoons of cooking oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. The oil is hot enough when you dip the edge of a wonton wrapper in it and it sizzles. Fry 3 or 4 asparagus fries at a time. Once one side is brown, rotate and cook another side. Proceed until the whole asparagus fry is lightly golden brown. Place asparagus fries on a plate lined with paper towels to remove excess oil. Serve with sweet chili sauce, wasabi mayonnaise, or your favorite dipping sauce.
