homemade vegetable potstickers with toasted sesame honey soy sauce

INGREDIENTS:
  1. 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  2. 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
  3. 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, chopped
  4. 1 cup shredded cabbage
  5. 1 cup shredded carrots
  6. 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or tamari
  7. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  8. 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  9. 36-40 wonton wrappers

TOASTED SESAME HONEY SOY SAUCE:
  1. 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  2. 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  3. 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
  4. 1-2 tablespoons Gochujang (Korean chili paste) or chili sauce
  5. 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or tamari
  6. 1 tablespoon honey
INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the mushroom, cabbage, carrots, and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally until the veggies have cooked down, about 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce, chives, and sesame seeds and cook another 2-3 minutes or until all the liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat and let cool. 
  • To assemble, spoon 1 tablespoon of filling onto each wrapper. Brush water around the edge of the wrapper. Fold the dough over the filling to create a half moon shape, pinching the edges to seal. Repeat with the remaining wrappers.
