Chinese Mushroom Dumplings with Sweet Chili Ginger Sesame Sauce

Easy homemade vegetarian dumplings (potstickers) with caramelized mushrooms, ginger, and sesame-crusted wrappers. Each dumpling is pan-fried until crispy on the bottom, then served alongside a sweet and spicy chili ginger sesame sauce. These are a fun and healthy dinner to make any night of the week…and so much better than ordering takeout.

The Asian cuisine certainly isn’t anything special. So instead of ordering in or going out, I have so much fun creating the recipes like this at home! In general these recipes are quick and easy to throw together and always come out delicious. And so much healthier than ordering takeout! A little sweet, a little spicy, hinted with toasted sesame, ginger, and a touch of garlic too…beyond good. So easy to mix up and perfect pairs with these crispy, salty mushroom dumplings. Making dumplings does take a little effort, you can make them in bulk over the weekend…or whenever you have time. Then just freeze what’s left over for the quickest, easiest lunch or dinner…any day of the week. Once the dumplings are frozen, simply pan-fry as directed, then steam for an additional 4-5 minutes.

Take some time this week or this weekend to make homemade dumplings. It’s wintertime, so as I said yesterday, that just means more time for spending in the kitchen cooking and baking. These are especially fun to make with others, so grab a few friends, your husband, kids, whoever, and make a fun night out of this. Maybe add a steaming bowl of soup to fully complete the meal.
