Easy Vegan Dumplings | Potstickers
I have always had a sort of obsession, with dumplings. I use to make them all the time when I first made the switch to vegetarian. Except I had forgot all about them, when I became vegan until recently when my husband order dumplings one night when we ordered take out and that brang back all of the memories and of course I just had to share.
Ingredients Dumpling Wrapper Dough 2 c. all purpose flour 1/2 c. warm water Pinch of salt
Dumpling Filling 1/2 onion (chopped) 2 garlic cloves (minced) 1/2 c. chopped mushrooms 1 grated carrot (1/2 c.) 1 c. napa chopped cabbage (leafy part) salt & pepper to taste 2 green onions (chopped) 1/8 tsp ginger powder 2 tsp soy sauce 1 tbsp water
Directions For the dumpling wrapper dough, add the flour, warm water, and salt into a bowl and mix and knead until it is all combined and form into a dough. You can also mix in a stand mixer with a dough hook. Cover and set aside for 20 minutes, to rest.
In a lightly oiled pan, on medium high heat, add carrot, onions, and mushrooms, salt and pepper to taste. Allow onion to become slightly translucent and add soy sauce, ginger powder, garlic, and napa cabbage. Add in 1 tbsp of water to create a bit of steam and make cabbage wilt faster. Once cabbage has wilted. Take off heat, and add chopped green onions. Then set aside. Roll out the wrapper dough half of the dough at a time. Roll out the dough very very thin. If you have a pasta machine you can also use that.
Using a round cookie cutter or large cup (approximately) 3 inches wide. Cut out the all the dough into round wrappers.
Using a generous tbsp of filling, fill each dumpling wrapper with filling in the center and pinch and pleat close. Watch video for exact dumpling closure explanation.
In a lightly oiled pan on medium heat, add about 6- 7 dumplings at a time and allow the dumplings to become golden brown and then flip. Golden brown other side and then add 1/4 of a cup of water into the pan to create steam and quickly cover. Once the water has almost completely dissolved the dumplings will be done. All that is left to do is ENJOY.
I like to eat mine with a sauce mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar, sriracha sauce, and a sprinkle of garlic powder.
