Preparation

  1. To make the wonton filling, combine the mushrooms, ginger, garlic, and oil in a large skillet or wok.
  2. Sauté on low heat for about 8 minutes.
  3. Add the vegetables, raise the heat to medium, and sauté for about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the rice vinegar and soy sauce. Remove the filling to a large bowl to cool.
  5. To make the sauce, combine everything except the soy sauce and cornstarch in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  6. Combine the soy sauce and cornstarch in a separate bowl, making sure the cornstarch is mostly dissolved.
  7. Stir the mixture into the saucepan. Cook until thick and bubbly, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat.
  8. Heat the oven to 375°F. Coat a cookie sheet with spray oil. Fill the wontons as you like. Give each wonton a good spray with the oil.
  9. Bake for 5 minutes, flip them over and bake for another 5 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the filling and wrappers.
