Looking for an appetizer for your next party? Here is a super easy veggie potstickers recipe that will surely become a hit at your next gathering!
Tasty and delicious potstickers are pan fried vegetable dumplings that are tender and crispy at the same time. Whenever we visit our favorite Thai/Chinese restaurant, potstickers is always on our order list. But none of my favorite restaurants offer veggie potstickers. So thought of recreating the same in my kitchen and here I am with my all-time favorite finger food -veggie potstickers……yum!
The key to a perfect potsticker is – the wrapper. I have used homemade wonton wrappers for this recipe. But feel free to use store bought wonton wrappers to save yourself some time. All the local grocery stores carry them under the name of either “wonton wrappers” or “dumpling wrappers” or “gyoza wrappers’. Look for them in the refrigerated section.
Folding potstickers may look a bit difficult at first, but once you’re comfortable with the technique you will find it pretty easy. It does require a little practice to shape them but follow the step by step tutorial below to get the right folds without much hassle. This recipe is divided in two parts – the filing and folding the postickers.
RECIPE DETAIL – A very adaptive recipe. Customize the filling with whatever veggies/protein you have on hand. Tofu lovers can add shredded tofu, more veggies, mushrooms to this recipe. Likewise, meat lovers can substitute tofu for sautéed meat and enjoy it with spicy ginger-soy dipping sauce!!
Cooking method is pretty straightforward – pan cook -steam- pan cook. The three step process adds a nice contrast of texture and color to the potstickers. Do give them a try and at your next party treat your guests with these easy-to-make veggie potstickers recipe. Pair it with your favorite noodles for a yummy meal tonight!
Also, a wonderful make ahead appetizer! Assemble the potstickers ahead of time and freeze for later use. When ready to use – remove from freezer and directly add them to the hot pan to fry or you can steam them too. There is no need to defrost the potstickers. It’s that easy!
