Friday Night DumplingsI made these are Friday night but am only getting around to posting now. I think dumplings make a great quick dinner/empty out your veggie drawer kind of meal. I made them using store-bought wonton wrappers, and added my own filling. Inside was:
- scrambled hard tofu
- asian eggplant
- olive and sesame oils
- 5-spice mix
- chili powder, salt and pepper
- fresh garlic, cilantro and gingerWe fried them, of course, but it was a big too oily. Between the fry mix and frying the dumplings, at some points, when we bit into the dumpling, oily juice oozed out. Good thing we steamed some fresh bok choy to go with it!
Also, i'm grateful for the tip to mix water with some cornstarch because it was hard to seal the wrappers well enough to stay closed. I just folded them in half, but i would have loved to play with the shapes more.
I think that i'll make these again, with some minor changes, but i'm very happy to have finally made my very own dumplings aka pot stickers!
