Valentine Potstickers ?❤️?❤️ Homemade wrappers with a tofu shiitake filling. My obsession with dumplings continues. I made some homemade wrappers tried to get them pinkish, using beet powder. Hope you like them. Happy Wednesday! ?
Recipe: The wrappers: 2 cups flour, 2 tsp beet powder, 3/4 cup hot, not boiling water The filling:5 ounce package of shiitake mushrooms, block of pressed tofu, 3 green onions & 1/4 cup water chestnuts finely chopped, 1 1/2 tbl tamari, 2 tsp cornstarch, 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil, 2 tsp maple syrup, 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, grape seed oil
1️⃣Combine water with beet powder, whisk
2️⃣Add flour & salt to food processor, on high, add beet water very slowly to flour. At first dough will be crumbly, then it will form a ball. Dough will be smooth and warm. Wrap in plastic. Rest 30 min
3️⃣Using a food processor, pulse mushrooms till crumbly.
4️⃣In a large skillet, heat 1 tsp of oil over medium high heat, add mushrooms, pinch of salt. Heat till reduced 4-5 min. Let cool
5️⃣In a large mixing bowl crumble tofu then add all ingredients, including mushrooms. Mix
6️⃣ After dough has rested.Cut dough in half (wrap up other half) sprinkle flour on your surface. Roll out dough thin, so you can see the shadow of your hand from underneath 7️⃣Using a 3 inch circular cutter or the top of a cup
press into dough to make wrappers.
8️⃣ Take wrapper and wet edges by dipping in water, then place 2 tsp of filling in the center, fold
9️⃣The choice is yours how to fold your dumplings. I folded dumplings by using a pinch braid technique which I demonstrate in my highlights. You can also just fold your dumpling wrapper in half with the filling & seal. It will taste just as delicious & take less time!! Repeat steps 6-9 for the left over dough?In non-stick pan or cast-iron heat 2 tbl of grape seed oil over medium high heat after about 2 min add dumplings.Cook until lightly browned at the bottom which should take 2 min
1️⃣1️⃣Using 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 min over med heat Serve with a dipping sauce ?
