Asian Invasion Vegan Potstickers

1 May

It has been sooo long since I have posted on here… Son’s birthday, sister’s birthday, stomach flu up to wazoo, home repairs, two different zoo visits, etc… etc… etc… my son is now 2!!!!  The new two year old tantrums have opened a whole new world of parenting… here is his homemade white cake and buttercream frosting robot cake I made for his birthday in April, sort of homely looking but chock full of love:

I have been cooking up a storm, so many recipes to come.  First of all, I absolutely adore wrapped up Asian foods such as dumplings, wontons, potstickers, springs rolls, etc…etc… so I have created a vegan filling which can go in any of these wrappers. YES!!!

Servings:   about 56 potstickers ((6-12 people, depending on if it’s a side or main dish))

Ingredients:

sesame oil
1 small cabbage sliced thin
3 grated carrots
1″ minced ginger
1 small onion or shallot
2-3 cloves minced garlic
tamari
vegan wonton or gyoza wraps
water
patience and love

Directions:


1)
Sautee the cabbage, carrots, ginger, onion, and garlic in a splash of sesame oil until all ingredients become soft ((about 5-7 minutes)) then add a splash of tamari, mix in, take off heat, and allow to cool.

2) Place a small spoonful onto each wonton wrapper ((so it doesn’t rip or spill out)), dip finger in a little water and rub along corners of wrapper, fold over and seal.  My first test-potsticker turned into more of a spring roll shape – sticky situation.

3)  Heat up some sesame oil in a pan on medium-high heat.  Pan sear the potstickers until golden brown on each side ((as shown below)).  You will definitely have to do this in groups.

4)  Once golden brown add a splash of water and small splash of tamari and cover with lid to steam the potstickers a little bit until all liquid evaporates.

READY TO SERVE!  These are delicious dipped in a tamari or soy sauce, sweet and sour sauce, or in my case a little bit of apricot preserves ((like heathy sweet and sour sauce)). Enjoy any day of the week, freeze them, make them for a party, great any time of the year etc…
