Low Carb Crab Rangoon. I used to make Crab Rangoon Bundles with wonton wrappers, fried in some crummy seed oil & served with some super sweet concoction. Well, those were the days my friends, we thought they’d never end; we’d sing and dance forever and a day. …and those days?…they did end. I still sing and dance but to a different tune and…these are a pretty terrific substitute. Certainly this is not traditional Crab Rangoon, only different, and really so much better and healthier. You will need one recipe Flaxseed Meal Crêpes.

- If serving to guests & you have access to long enough green onions cut twelve, put them in boiling water a few seconds to make them soft and tie around each crêpe. It makes a pretty presentation. If you can't get long enough green onions cut them as long as you can, cut each in half and drape an X across the top of each one.
- Nutritionals include crêpes.
- Crab Rangoon is very good served with a sweet sauce so if you want your Asian drizzle a bit sweeter add 1-2 T Just Like Sugar, a couple drops of liquid Sucalose or sweetener of choice.
- I know crab meat is very expensive. (I get dungeness here on the left coast). I have not tried this but perhaps to save tons of money you might try imitation crab, just beware of the added ingredients (and binding starches) it may contain.
