Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup low-sodium vegetable stock
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. tahini
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. creamy peanut butter

Instructions: 

1. To make Dumplings: Heat oil in large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add snow peas; stir-fry until softened, about 1 minute. Lower heat to medium; add mustard greens, and cook until just wilted, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir in onions, garlic, bean sauce, tamari, and honey. Cook, stirring occasionally, 7 to 10 minutes, until no liquid remains.

2. Dust baking sheet with cornstarch. Arrange several gyoza wrappers on work surface. Put 1 Tbs. filling in center of each, and brush egg on half of edge. Bring edges together to form half-moon shape, and press to seal. Place dumplings on baking sheet; cover loosely with plastic while assembling the rest. Cover tightly with plastic, and refrigerate up to 24 hours, or freeze.

3. To make Sesame Sauce: Whisk all ingredients in small pan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and whisk until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Cool, and serve in small dipping bowls.

4. To steam Dumplings: Lightly oil heat-proof plate or metal steamer insert. Cook dumplings—on plate set on cake cooling rack over boiling water or in steamer—8 minutes. Serve hot with sauce.

Comments on this Recipe

These are delicious but took a long time to prepare. I'm sure it didn't help that my wrappers were more rectangular, so I had to wrap them differently than what was stated in the directions. Although they were difficult for me they were worth it.

These were fantastic! My husband wants me to add tofu to the filling next time. I used the gluten free won ton wrapper recipe from Gluten Free on a Shoestring to make them GF.
