Holidays With Honey – Winter Veggie Potstickers With Honey Asian Dipping Sauce

winter veggie potstickers

Winter veggies are at their best right now, and this is a wonderful way to enjoy them!

Yield:  24 potstickers

Ingredients

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 leek, cleaned and thinly sliced

1 clove garlic, pressed

1 head Napa cabbage, finely shredded

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated

1 medium carrot, grated on finest holes of a box grater

24 wonton wrappers

Honey Asian Dipping Sauce, recipe follows

Directions

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the leeks and garlic and cook until leeks begin to soften, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the cabbage, vinegar, soy sauce, and ginger and cook, stirring, until cabbage is soft, about 3 to 4 minutes more. Remove from the heat and stir in the carrot. Allow the filling to cool.

Transfer cabbage mixture to a mixing bowl and work together until fully incorporated. Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

To make the potstickers, lay a wonton wrapper on the work surface and put about 1 tablespoon of the filling in the center. Dip your finger in a little water and wet the edges of the wonton wrapper; this will help the potsticker seal when cooking. Bring the outside edges of the wonton wrapper together over the filling and press it together to form a pouch. Continue with the remaining wrappers and filling.

To cook the potstickers, heat the remaining oil in a very large skillet over high heat. Place all of the potstickers upright in the pan and cook, without disturbing them, until browned on the bottom, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water to the pan and immediately cover. Allow the potstickers to steam for about 3 minutes, then remove the skillet lid. Continue cooking until the water is completely evaporated.

Transfer to a platter and serve with the dipping sauce.
