How To Make ‘Not Pork’ Mushroom Potstickers [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

  1. Start by making the dough. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and stir them using chopsticks or a spoon until everything is well combined and the dough has cooled down a little.
  2. Then start kneading it for 10 minutes until the dough becomes soft. Place it into a bowl, cover it, and let it rest for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, make the filling. Make sure the mushrooms, ginger, garlic, spring onions, and spinach are all finely minced.
  3. Add everything into a large bowl together with the remaining ingredients and mix it all well.
  4. Once the dough has rested, form it into 32 equally sized balls. Using a small rolling pin or your hands flatten them into small discs about the size of your palm.
  5. Now, it's time to shape the dumplings. This one is a little tricky but you will get the hang of it pretty quickly.  Place a small amount of filling in the center of the dough, then seal it inside and press down on the edges.
  6. Once you have shaped all of your dumplings heat up about a tablespoon of coconut oil on medium heat in a large frying pan with a lid.
  7. Add half of the dumplings into the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes until the bottoms are golden brown.
  8. Once the bottoms are brown add 1/2 cup of lukewarm water, add to the pan, and cover. Now let the dumplings steam cook for 8 minutes.
  9. Repeat the process with the second half of the dumplings.
  10. While the dumplings are cooking make the dipping sauce by simply adding all of the ingredients into a small bowl.
