Veggie Pot stickers!


These veggie pot stickers are easy, delicious, and come out to be about 200 calories per serving (about 6 pot stickers). Feel free to modify it to your favorite veggies!


Makes 12-16 pot stickers

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 head cabbage, chopped into ribbons
  • 1/2 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 medium carrot, diced
  • 1/2 squash, diced
  • 1/2 zucchini, diced
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 1 handful cilantro diced
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 12 pot sticker wrappers (mine are 60 calories for 4 wrappers)
  • 1/4 cup water

Directions:

  1. Prepare your veggies by dicing everything to be pretty small. You’re wanting to get an even mixture when you fill the wrappers.
  2. Spray your pan, then add all of the veggies minus the cilantro. You can add your vinegar and soy sauce as well. You want your stove to be on a medium heat. You’re just trying to cook some of the water out of the mixture. Stir every few minutes.
  3. Once your veggie mixture is about half the size it was, you can remove it from heat and add your cilantro. Give it a good stir, then set aside to cool.
  4. When you’re ready to make your pot stickers, set your pan up on the stove on a medium heat with another spritz of cooking spray and about 1/4 cup water. As it heats up, add your filling to your wrappers, lining the sides with a bit more water, then pinching them closed. You can go for looks but the most important thing is that the dumpling is sealed completely.
  5. Add all pot stickers to your pan at once and cover, letting them steam for about 5 minutes. If your pan is too hot, the bottoms will burn while the tops won’t be cooked enough. You may want to try a tester dumpling to start. sometimes I’ll flip my pot stickers halfway through if I’m in that kind of a mood but it’s optional based on how doughy you like yours.
  6. You’re ready to eat! If you serve with 1/4 cup of white rice, tack on another 50 calories.
