  • 3 tbsp flavorless oil like sunflower seed oil
  • 1 tbsp ginger freshly grated
  • 1 bunch scallion thinly sliced, whites and greens separated
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 oz. mushrooms finely chopped
  • 2 large carrots or 3 medium, finely chopped
  • ~3 oz. alfalfa sprouts roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 tsp pepper (I use a white/black pepper mix)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Shaoxing, Sherry, or Marsala wine
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 package wonton wrappers round or square

Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup black vinegar or use rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated
  • chili oil serve on the side


  • Heat 3 tbsp of flavorless oil in your large pan over medium to medium-high heat. 
  • Add your ginger, scallion whites, and garlic. Cook until the onion whites start to get translucent.
  • Add the mushrooms. Cook until liquid has released from the mushrooms.
  • Add your carrots. Cook until tender, 3-4 minutes.
  • Transfer your pan contents to a mixing bowl. Add your sprouts, cilantro, scallion greens, pepper, olive oil, wine, sugar, and soy sauce. Mix well.
  • Fill each wonton wrapper with ~2 tsp of filling. Pleat or fold as you please. If you're having trouble getting the wrappers to stick to themselves, you can use water or egg wash.
  • Steam for 6 minutes until the wonton wrapper is cooked.


These dumplings freeze VERY well. Freeze them on a baking sheet, then transfer them to a sealed container like a resealable bag. Steam frozen dumplings for 8 minutes instead of 6.
