Dumplings for my dumpling

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 egg

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.
