The very first dish I ever learned to cook was teriyaki chicken. Since then, I have enjoyed creating homemade Asian dishes, and have also, thankfully, gotten better at making them over the years! Potstickers are one of my favorite dishes to make. You can fill them with whatever you’re in the mood for (or have in your fridge), pair it with a yummy dipping sauce, and it is a delicious dinner!
This evening, I wanted to make turkey potstickers, and they turned out fantastic! My vegetable-hating daughter even loved them, and had no idea it was packed with so many veggies!
I decided to add lots of fresh mushrooms with the ground turkey, to add more nutrition to the meal, along with the fresh veggies! I took the turkey and mushrooms and blended them together, which is a super easy way to add another serving of vegetables to the meal.
I just learned the term “blenditarian“, which is someone who adds mushrooms to meals to get a meaty power to the dish, while adding in more flavor, nutrition and sustainability. Being a blenditarian is good for you, good for the palate, and good for the planet.
Since mushrooms are cholesterol and fat free, lower in calories, and contain antioxidants, Vitamin D and B and potassium, it is no surprise that I have become a blenditarian! I also love that adding mushrooms to a meal helps stretch the food much further, which helps me save money (which everyone is a fan of, right?!).
I have actually made turkey potstickers with just turkey. I’ve also made vegetarian potstickers with mushrooms as the meaty component. Both are delicious! BUT, I have to say, these turkey potstickers with the combination of turkey and mushrooms is my favorite recipe so far. It has wonderful balance, texture, and flavor. I am excited to adapt more of my favorite recipes to include yummy mushrooms!
- 1/2 lb ground turkey
- 1 cup button mushrooms
- 1/4 cup carrots, peeled and chopped
- 1/4 cup onions, peeled and roughly chopped
- 1/3 cup shredded cabbage
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- A couple squirts of sriracha
- Wonton wrappers
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- As much sriracha as your heart desires
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- Brown ground turkey until cooked through. Add turkey and remaining ingredients to a blender and pulse until well blended, but not pureed. Add mixture to a pan, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Lay out a few wonton wrappers, and place a teaspoon of the potsticker mixture in the center. Dip your fingers in water, and trace the outside of the wonton wrapper, getting all sides slightly wet. Pull all four corners together in the middle, and press the seams together. Repeat until potsticker mixture is gone.
- Warm a teaspoon of olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Place 8 or so turkey potstickers in the pot and allow to brown on the bottom. Pour in 1/8 cup of water, reduce heat to low, and cover with a lid. Allow to steam for 10 minutes, or until potstickers puff up and become soft.
- Combine ingredients in a bowl, and enjoy!
