Goat Cheese Wontons

Who knew you could clean up a clean eating recipe and still have it taste delicious? The inspiration for this recipe came from Clean Eating magazine, but here I have made it . . .healthier! The addition of quinoa, basil, red pepper and garlic to the filling means that you have more nutrition and less fat without sacrificing taste. For the sauce, I’ve used Greek yogurt and kicked it up a notch with a healthy dose of garlic. If you are not a fan of garlic, feel free to adjust the sauce accordingly.

  • 6 oz wonton wrappers
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon basil chopped fine
  • teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • ¼ cup fresh parmesan grated
  • ½ cup roasted red peppers
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 T basil chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine goat cheese, cooked quinoa, basil, red pepper, and garlic.
  • Spread out wonton wrappers on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with olive oil. Put a teaspoon or two of the filling on each wrapper. Brush the edges with water and fold to form a triangle.
  • Press the edges to close.
  • When all of your wrappers are filled spray the tops with olive oil spray. Top with parmesan cheese. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, keeping a close eye on them towards the end. The wontons are done when they are a golden brown.
  • To make the roasted red pepper sauce, combine red peppers, yogurt, basil, garlic, sea salt and pepper in your blender. Process until smooth.


Note: Make sure that you use Greek yogurt and not traditional in the sauce. Greek yogurt is much thicker and gives the sauce the correct consistency. Make it Vegan: Use vegan cheese, vegan wonton wrappers, and nut milk Greek yogurt.
