I was given a bushel of sweet potatoes and while we love them, I wanted to venture beyond the "usual" recipes. I started adding them to some of our favorite dishes and one that turned out really well is my Sweet Potato Pot Stickers. —mleverette
What You'll Need
cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
onion, finely chopped
finely shredded green cabbage
peeled and grated fresh ginger
Asian sesame oil
round wonton wrappers
In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, onion, cabbage, ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce and pepper. Mix well.
Place wonton wrappers on work surface and cover with a damp kitchen towel. Working with one wrapper at a time, place 1 teaspoon of filling in middle of wrapper. Brush edges with water and fold wonton in half, pressing edges together to seal. Set aside and cover with plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, fry filled wontons until golden brown, about 1 minute. Recoat pan as needed with remaining vegetable oil.
Return wontons to pan and add chicken stock. Cover and simmer until stock is almost absorbed, about 15 minutes. Uncover and cook until stock is completely absorbed and bottoms of pot stickers are crisp.
Serve pot stickers warm with additional soy sauce.
