Veggie Potstickers are little bites of happiness that the whole family can enjoy.
Potstickers (or dumplings, as I most often refer to them) are a favorite here at superman cooks. We’ve been known to make a meal of them, or just pop a few in the skillet as an appetizer or snack. As someone who used to rely on take out to enjoy these perfect bites, I was blown away when Keith began making our own versions at home. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it wasn’t that difficult. “Dumpling making” soon became a family activity for us; it’s a great bonding experience and a fun way to personalize your meals.
These Ultimate Veggie Potstickers are Keith’s tried and true, go-to recipe for vegetarian guests and carnivores alike. They’re stock full of yummy veggies and packed with robust flavor. I also like the texture and crunch that vegetables give these dumplings. They are so satisfying and good for you too!
We whole-heartedly recommend a Potsticker Party for you and your friends and family. It is a great way to involve kids in the preparation of food, and it leaves everyone with a sense of satisfaction, having created these cute little works of art customized to suit each person’s taste.
Vegetables of any kind work here, but this recipe is the combination that our family most enjoys. We especially like to combine veggie potstickers with pork or chicken versions, to create a well-rounded meal with diverse flavor. Dip them in your choice of sauce, pop them in your mouth, and prepare to be amazed.
