My eldest son loves all dumplings and dumpling type foods. He especially likes it when I make my own version of potstickers which I learned from a college roomate. He's never enjoyed vegetarian ones, however- until these.
1 package wonton wrappers
1lb package of seasoned tofu (Nasoya 'chinese' seasoning)- well drained
1 carrot, shredded
1 green onion (greens and whites)
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp sesame seeds
about 6 or 8 snow peas chopped finely
1 clove garlic chopped
1 tsp fresh ginger chopped
1/4 package frozen chopped spinach also well drained
Place in boiling water for about 4 min.
Serve with a splash of soy sauce or in chicken broth.
Its important that the tofu & spinach are really well drained. Cant emphasize this enough. Mix everything but wrappers in a bowl. Put about 1 tsp of filling into the center of each wonton wrapper and fold, use egg to seal. Most packages have a diagram of how to fold them. Personally, I am too culturally hidebound and can only make mine look like tortellini, but they taste great anyway.
