Steamed TVP Pot Stickers

I have been enjoying my experimental cooking using TVP. This is one of  my favorite was to use it in cooking so far.

1/2 cup TVP
1/4 cup hot water
1/2 tsp. grated or minced ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbs. green onions, minced
2 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbs. roasted red pepper, minced
Pepper to taste
Mini Wonton wrappers

Mix the TVP and water to reconstitute. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

Fill each wonton wrapper with about 1 rounded teaspoon of the mix, using water to seal the edges and fork to crimp the sides.

Steam for about 5 minutes, flipping over half way through cooking time.

This recipe makes about 20 dumplings.

A Few Notes:  

1) If you use a metal steamer like I do, spray with cooking spray before you cook the pot stickers to prevent them from sticking to the pan.

2) Work in batches and keep pot stickers warm in the oven on low heat. Keep covered.

3) This is a recipe for a quick dipping sauce
2 Tbs. water
2 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 tsp. grated or minced ginger
Combine ingredients and mix well.

4) I served these tasty treats with Miso soup and brown fried rice.
