These potstickers come together really quickly and they cook really fast. Make a large batch and freeze them for an easy weeknight dinner or quick appetizer.
First tip for making potstickers, use a blender to combine the filling. This brings all of the flavors together and ensures even cooking.
Next, use a one tablespoon scoop to measure out the filling onto the wanton wrappers. Again, it ensures the filling is evenly distributed and the wantons don’t end up overfilled.
You’ll need to work quickly, in small batches to prevent the wantons from drying out. Lay out six wrapper on your work surface. Add a tablespoon of filling to each. Then use your finger to wet two edges of the wrapper.
Fold the wrapper into a triangle and seal tightly.
Place your completed potstickers on a parchment lined baking sheet until ready to cook. Or cover the uncooked potstickers with plastic wrap and freeze in a single layer for one to two hours, until firm. Then transfer to a freezer back and store for up to three months.
To cook from fresh or frozen, heat a tablespoon of oil in a nonstick skillet. Add 8 to 12 potstickers to the pan and allow to crisp, about two minutes. Add 1/3 cup of vegetable stock and quickly cover the pan with a lid. Cook until the broth has evaporated.
