Mushroom Potstickers

A trip to T&T Supermarket this weekend inspired these potstickers! I spotted a few of my favourite varieties of mushrooms so I decided to make them vegetarian.

Potstickers are a type of dumpling usually filled with ground pork and cabbage but are versatile and can be personalized to your taste. Try a few different kinds for a delicious snack that is super easy to make.

Yield: approximately 40–50 potstickers

Preparation time: 2 hours

Cook time: 15 minutes

Mushroom potstickers

¼ cup canola oil

8 oz cremini mushrooms

8 oz king oyster mushrooms

6 oz chanterelle mushrooms

7 oz enoki mushrooms

1 stick celery

2 cloves garlic

12 oz bean sprouts

3 green onions

Salt and pepper to taste

1 egg, beaten

1lb round wonton wrappers

  • Clean the mushrooms and cut them into small pieces. Keep them separate.

  • Heat a large frying pan with a tablespoon of canola oil on high heat.

  • Add the cremini mushrooms and fry until they are golden brown. Stir often and add more oil if needed.

  • Remove the mushrooms from the pan into a large mixing bowl.

  • Repeat the cooking process for the rest of the mushrooms. Cooked separately and added to the same mixing bowl.

  • Once all the mushrooms have been cooked, heat the pan again, add canola oil, celery, and garlic, and sauté.

  • Once the celery softens, add the bean sprouts and sauté for another minute while stirring.

  • Now add the green onions, stir, and cook for another minute. Turn the heat off and add the sprout mix to the mushrooms.

  • Season the mix with salt and fresh cracked black pepper and let it cook completely.

  • Once the mix has cooled, take one wonton wrapper, and wet the edges with the beaten egg (for vegan potstickers use a slurry of water and flour instead of the egg).

  • Add a tablespoon full of the mushroom mixture to the center of the wrapper and crimp fold the edges together.

For the sauce

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp mirin

1 green onion, chopped

1 tsp sugar

½ tsp chili oil

juice of ½ a lime

  • Mix the ingredients to combine.

  • Heat a large frying pan on high heat.

  • Add canola oil and fry the potstickers on all sides until golden brown. Remove from the pan, turn off the heat, and enjoy your potstickers with the dipping sauce.
