Vegetable festive potstickers



  1. Mix together all ingredients, except the gow gee pastries and vegetable oil. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat 1tbsp vegetable oil in a frying pan and on a low heat, gently sauté the mixture. After 2-3 minutes once the vegetables have softened, remove from the pan and leave to cool.
  3. Lay four pastries out at a time, ensuring the remaining are covered. Place a heaped teaspoon of the mixture into the centre of each wrapper. Brush the edges of each wrapper with a little water and using your thumb and index finger, pleat one edge, then press edges together to seal. Once all pastries are complete, place in a single layer on a prepared tray.
  4. Preheat oven to 80°C.
  5. Heat 1tbsp vegetable oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add 8 dumplings, pleated side-up, in a single layer and cook for 1-2 minutes or until brown underneath.
  6. Carefully add 100ml boiling water, then cover with a lid and cook for a further 4-5 minutes. Remove the lid and continue cooking until water has evaporated.
  7. Gently shake the pan to unstick the potstickers.
  8. Transfer to an oven tray, cover with foil and keep warm in oven.
  9. Repeat with remaining oil and dumplings.
