Dumplings, pot stickers, gyoza…whatever you want to call it, they’re wonton wrappers stuffed with meat or vegetables. In this instance, they’re stuffed with a spicy ground turkey mixture. I’ve got lots of ground turkey on hand because I cannot resist a BOGO, and turkey is always buy one get one free. Its not exactly helping with my “clean out the fridge and pantry” mission, but hey, I didn’t have wonton wrappers on hand either. Whatever.
These were surprisingly easy to make, and a huge hit with The Hubs. I actually only cooked 1/2 of them on one day, then put the other half in the fridge, and cooked them up the next day as well. Great football food, or perfect for an easy, light dinner with some vegetables on the side.
1 1/4lb ground turkey
3 T. chives, chopped
1 T. Gourmet Garden ginger
1 T. Gourmet Garden garlic
1 T. Gourmet Garden Chili Pepper
2 T. rice wine vinegar
1 T. sesame oil
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Lay out the wonton wrappers on a flat surface, and spoon 1 T. of turkey mixture into the center of each wrapper. Wet the edges of the wrapper, then fold one side over and pinch to seal. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in a few of the dumplings and give it a quick stir so they don’t stick together. Once the water returns to a boil, pour in 1/2 cup of cold water. Once the water comes to a boil again, repeat. After it returns to a boil for the third time, remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon. Serve with soy sauce for dipping. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen
