Shiitake & Tofu Potstickers🥟🥟🥟 Yes, I’m addicted to dumplings. Pot stickers, gnocchi, ravioli, pirogies, knish, empanadas, gyoza etc.I love them all. Here are some Potstickers for your Wednesday. Fun to make and tasty to eat. Recipe: What you need: 5 ounce package of shiitake mushrooms, 3 inch wide dumpling wrappers 30-40 count, one block of pressed tofu, 3 green onions & 1/4 cup water chestnuts finally chopped, 1 1/2 tbl tamari, 2 tsp cornstarch, 1 in knob of ginger peeled & grated, 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil, 2 tsp maple syrup, 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, grape seed oil
1️⃣ In a large mixing bowl crumble tofu with the back of a fork or use hands, then add all ingredients except mushrooms. Mix well till all ingredients are incorporated
2️⃣ Using a food processor, pulse mushrooms 3x till crumbly.
3️⃣ in a large skillet, heat 1 tsp of oil over medium high heat, then add mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Heat mushrooms till reduced about 4-5 min
4️⃣When mushrooms cool, add to tofu mix
5️⃣Time to set up dumpling stations: place lightly damp kitchen towel around stack of dumpling wrappers so they don’t dry out, have a small dish of water 1/2 inch high, dumpling filling, and a lined tray for completed dumplings
6️⃣Take one wrapper and wet edges by dipping in water, then place 2 tsp of filling in the center, and fold
7️⃣ Now the choice is yours how to fold your dumplings. I folded my dumplings by using a pinch braid technique which I demonstrate in my highlights. You can also just fold your dumplings wrapper in half with the filling and seal. They will taste just as delicious and take way less time!! 8️⃣ In non-stick pan or cast-iron heat 2 tablespoons of grape seed oil over medium high heat after about 1 minute add your dumplings.I fit about 12. Cook until lightly browned at the bottom which should take about 2 minutes
9️⃣ Using the lid of your pan to protect yourself from oil splatters, add 1/2 cup water, cover with lid and cook dumplings for another 5 to 6 minutes over medium heat 🔟Repeat steps eight and nine for the next batch. Serve with a dipping sauce. I used a mixture of tamari, rice vinegar, sesame oil and sweet chili sauce. I just mixed it to taste.
