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
- 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
- Prepare your veggies by dicing everything to be pretty small. You’re wanting to get an even mixture when you fill the wrappers.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- You’re ready to eat! If you serve with 1/4 cup of white rice, tack on another 50 calories.
