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!

what failed about your attempt? maybe it was procedural? would love to help you trouble-shoot.

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.

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.
