Happy Year of the Tiger! In honor of Lunar New Year today, I’ll be serving up festive, low carb dishes all day…starting with keto crab rangoon. This crab and cream cheese appetizer has taken social media by storm lately, so I thought there was no better day than to recreate it for the low carb set! Crab rangoon is generally keto-friendly, except for the wonton wrapper and sweet and sour dipping sauce, so I’m using some of my favorite alternatives and substitutes to make a keto crab rangoon recipe that’s absolutely addictive!
As you can probably guess if you have followed me for a while, I substituted the traditional wonton wrapper with Cut Da Carb flatbreads. I popped these in the air fryer and they came out crispy and perfectly browned, however you can also fry them in a pan with oil — either way you’ll get delicious, low carb crab rangoon that’s crispy on the outside and warm and creamy on the inside!
For the dipping sauce, I made a low carb sweet & sour sauce with sugar-free ketchup and my favorite brown sugar substitute, Lakanto Golden.
I’ll be posting all my other keto Lunar New Year recipes over on Instagram – so head over there to see what else I’ve got on the menu today!
