|Enoki mushrooms - so very cute |
and yummy, too!
1/2 lb ground turkey
1 bunch of enoki mushrooms (1 cup of any other kind julienned)
6 shredded baby carrots (more or less to taste)
6 scallions - sliced thinly (save green parts for the sauce)
1/2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons of garlic powder
2 teaspoons of onion powder
1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 package of won ton wrappers (I used the round ones)
1/4 cup mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine)
2 teaspoons of brown sugar
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil
2 teaspoons of sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon chili oil
Mix all sauce ingredients and set aside.
To prepare the pot stickers, mix all ingredients together (except the won ton wrappers). Add a small amount to the center of a wrapper and moisten the edges with a finger dipped in water. Pinch the wrappers together, removing all the air from inside. This process is easy but time consuming. When you've finished, add 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil to a pan and cook 6 -7 at a time over medium high heat until the bottoms are well browned. Carefully add 1/2 cup of water and cover. Allows pot stickers to steam for 2 minutes. Remove cover and continue cooking until water has evaporated. Serve warm with dipping sauce.
