Year of the Tiger

Look what I made yesterday!
Veggie potstickers to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Thanks to Suzie for the inspiration. This is the recipe we used. So simple to make and using my food processor made it even easier:) I also just used regular cabbage instead of nappa for the filling and extra ginger. Filling them was fun. It took a few to get the hang of it. You wet the sides of the wrapper to make them stick together.

Here they are all nestled in the pan getting their bottoms crispy:)

But I have to tell you though, for me, it was the sauce that made

Heavenly Asian Dipping Sauce:

1/4 cup light soy sauce

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar ( I didn't have enough so made up the diff with sherry)

1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

1/2 lemon, zested ( lemon peel)

Stir everything together in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Yowza is it good!

Yield: about 1/3 cup

Oh, and the winners of the One Heart One World draw are .....

Shelagh, fabbie! Thanks for the recipe, I've had this sauce before and it is to die for! xo

Suzie Ridler said...

Way to go Shelagh, they look perfect! And yes, that dipping sauce is extraordinary. Anything that makes me eat a lot of cabbage is a winner, so good for you and I rarely eat it, hubby hates it. So glad you tried them and belated Gung Hey Fat Choy!

YUM! I once made the wrappers from scratch but buying them is much easier. I could eat a hundred of these! ( which is why I'll never be thin)
