I love pot stickers and this is something I was not going to give up when we decided to be on the 95% plant based diet.
So I’ve tried making different no-meat pot stickers, and so far these edamame ones are my favorite.
Look at this bright green color!
It was exciting!
And pot-sticker making is one of my favorite food preparations.
It’s always fun to make these, although I do miss my mom I would love to have next to me helping making some.
Then I line them up like good soldiers on my trusted Zojirushi hot plate.
Because of the coating you don’t have to worry about your pot stickers sticking to the pan, and you also don’t need a lot of oil.
Still they get browned fast and beautifully.
Add some hot water, cover with a lid, and wait.
Since there is nothing that needs to be cooked through inside the wrappers, you don’t have to wait too long, which is a good thing.
They look absolutely beautiful!
I didn’t expect it, but the green color of the filling really came through wonderfully, which was an added bonus.
Edamame Pot Stickers
1.5 cups cooked edamame
1.5 cups cooked and chopped cabbage
3 cloves garlic, grated
1~2 teaspoons grated ginger
3~4 tablespoons chopped Chinese garlic chives
2~3 tablespoons chopped scallion
salt and pepper
pot sticker wrappers
canola oil for frying
sauce (soy sauce, white vinegar, pepper jam from Trader Joe’s)
1. Make filling. Combine all the ingredients. Mix well.
2. Make pot stickers by filling the wrappers with the filling and sealing the edges tightly with water.
3. Cook the pot stickers on a hot plate at 350F with oil until the bottom is browned. Add hot water and cover with a lid. Continue to cook for a few minutes.
4. Serve with sauce.
