Recipe (makes 20-30 dumplings)
~ 1 pack dumpling wrapper (thaw to room temperature)
~ 4-5 cups shredded cabbage, 1/2 cup shredded carrot, 1/2 cup chopped King oyster mushrooms or any low moisture mushrooms, 1/2 cup finely chopped jicama (for texture, optional but highly recommended)

?Seasoning: 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 3 teaspoons mushrooms stir fry sauce, white pepper, salt to taste
✅To prepare the filling, heat a non-stick pan with 1 tablespoon oil, sauté ginger & garlic until fragrant. Then add in carrot, mushrooms, cabbage, jicama & stir fry until cabbage starts to wilt. Seasoned with sauce & adjust taste accordingly. Place mixture on a sieve over a bowl & squeeze as much liquid out as possible then add in chopped cilantro.

Bring both sides together & press to seal tightly to remove as many air bubbles as possible. Check my IGTV/highlights for different pleating videos.??
✅To cook dumplings, bring a 5qt. pot with water to boil. While water is boiling, drop dumplings in slowly using a slotted spoon (cook in few batches). Let dumplings cook until they float up & let afloat for 1-2 mins.
?Spicy nut sauce: Whisk together 1/2 cup nut butter (used crunchy almond butter), 3 tablespoons light soy sauce/tamari, 2 tablespoons black vinegar, 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon chili oil with sediment (see recipe on highlights), 1 teaspoon grated ginger, 1 teaspoon maple syrup, a drizzle of toasted sesame oil & a few dashes of white pepper until well combined. To lighten up the sauce, mix it with some hot water (optional).
