A while back when out to dinner, ds had some sort of wontons/potstickers that were stuffed with a saucy rice mix and he LOVED them.
I bought the wrappers to try and make some at home-perfect for his lunch box...but after one failed batch...apprently you can't just stick whatever in there, LOL.

Anyone have any good suggestions or recipes, something that might work inside these? I have been looking online but haven't found much...

Thanks so much!

We don't really do rice in our dumplings. Usually we throw cabbage, carrots, broccoli, and tofu into the food processor, grind that all up (it's sort of a rough paste) mix in a generous amount of hoisoin sauce, and then put that in the wrappers. After we pan fry them with some soy sauce, we make a really delicious ginger dipping sauce. Is it bad we usually cook up all 50-100 wrappers and somehow b/w DH and I, we eat them all?

Well, I don't think it was that they turned out horribly, LOL...I used a recipe I found online...
But failed IMO because it got the big thumbs down from ds.

It was a mix of cabbage, carrot, oil, seasonings mased to a chunky paste, then the rice was chopped a bit, then mixed all together.


Ds isn't big into just veggies-they really have to be in other things, pastas, rices, soups, etc...which is why I thought it was important to use a recipe with rice?

well humph! sounds good to me.

what about some mashed white beans and nutritional yeast (to give it a cheesy feel) with the veggies finely diced up in it? what kind of cabbage? I find the kids don't object to Napa cabbage like they do the traditional european type (much stronger flavor).

I did shredded carrots, salt & pepper, and cabbage. I made mine into fried wontons. Then in some of them I put a little dab of brown sugar, and a thick slice of banana, and fried it. AWESOME.

Pumpkin Ravioli

I started to make these one day, but then I opened my wonton package and they were moldy. So I don't know if they're good or not, but they sure look yummy.
