You guys. You guys.

I made homemade potstickers and they are seriously the best thing ever…and with all veggies too!

Oh my gosh…I love these.

Question? Did you guys grow up eating potstickers from the freezer isle? Because I did, potstickers and Perogies. Both were recurring after school snacks (and sometimes dinners) when I was a kid, my mom and I loved them. Especially with a side of soy sauce. Yum.

Seeing as I now have a recipe for Homemade Perogies on HBH, I thought I should probably have a recipe for homemade potstickers too. I mean, it just seemed like the right thing to do. And it is.

I know Homemade Potstickers might sound scary, and you’re probably thinking these are too hard to make, but the truth is that they’re relatively easy, and actually somewhat fun to make. Not to mention the fact that these are a million times better than anything from the freezer section, and healthier too!

I made my potsticker filling out of veggies, which I personally think is way better than ground meat. The vegetables add flavor and color, which you guys know I am all about.

I used mushrooms, cabbage, and carrots, but honestly, any mash-up of veggies would do. Broccoli, brussels sprouts, and kale would all be awesome. I seasoned the veggies with a touch of soy sauce and used a ton of ginger and sesame to kick things up a bit. I then pan-fried them and served them up with the most delicious sauce, because in my opinion you can’t serve potstickers without sauce. You just can’t.

When I was a kid, mom and I would eat our Potstickers with a little soy, but I decided to have some fun and create a sauce loaded with flavor. Enter my Toasted Sesame Honey Soy Sauce. It’s sweet, a little spicy, and a touch salty, which if you did not know is the perfect combo and the best accompaniment to these homemade potstickers.

You have to try it.

Preferably sometime soon, like maybe this weekend? Or maybe even tomorrow night for a little 2018 Winter Olympic Opening Ceremony celebration dinner.

Yes, yes, you should! Invite friends over, make potstickers, and watch the Opening Ceremonies (they will replayed tomorrow night at 8:pm EST on NBC…PyeongChang is 14 hours ahead of EST). You can cheer on my brother Red, his friends, and the entire US Snowboard team. YES, DO THAT!

Here is a link to the entire broadcasting schedule of the Olympics. If you want to watch live, you’ll need to livestream. Here is a link to a free trial on Fubo TV. Red competes live at 8:00 pm EST on Friday night the 9th, or watch the replay the next morning on NBCSN at 9:15 am EST. If Red makes finals, he will compete live at 8:00 pm EST on NBCSN.

Speaking of which…

As you guys are reading this post, I should be somewhere over the Pacific Ocean and well on my way to South Korea. Not going to lie, kind of freaking out a bit as I type that. This is the farthest I have ever traveled, and only the second time I have ever been out of the USA. The first time was to Mexico, which was only a two-hour flight from home I almost feel as though that doesn’t even count.

Anyway, the Korean adventure to the 2018 Winter Olympics has officially begun. It’s going to be a crazy week ahead, but I’m excited and so happy to be here with my family and even more happy for the reason we are going. Still can’t really believe it, but Red’s an Olympian now, and I cannot wait to cheer him on, and his friends (some of which feel like family members as well).

It’s going to be amazing.

Don’t forget to follow along on Instagram!!

And then, make these Potstickers tomorrow, take a photo, and tag me on Insta so I can see!

Ingredients

Toasted Sesame Honey Soy Sauce

Instructions

  • 1. Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the mushroom, cabbage, carrots, and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally until the veggies have cooked down, about 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce, chives, and sesame seeds and cook another 2-3 minutes or until all the liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat and let cool. 
    2. To assemble, spoon 1 tablespoon of filling onto each wrapper. Brush water around the edge of the wrapper. Fold the dough over the filling to create a half moon shape, pinching the edges to seal. Repeat with the remaining wrappers. 
    3. Heat a large skillet with the remaining sesame oil over medium-high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the potstickers and cook until the bottoms are light golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Pour 1/4 cup of water into the pan and immediately cover with a tight fitting lid. Turn heat to medium and let the dumplings steam for 3 minutes. Serve immediately with sauce (se below). 
    4. To make the sauce, whisk together all ingredients in a bowl.

    Delicious! First time making potstickers,I found them a bit time consuming,to wrap each potsticker,but they were yummy. Excited to try other potstickers recipes of yours. Thanks for another great dinner

  2. 5 stars
    This recipe was fantastic! I substituted Kimchi for basic cabbage and did two tablespoons of honey. I pureed the mixture bc my grandma doesn’t chew/digest well. It was so good! I wish the sauce was a little thicker so if I make it again I will up the honey and decrease the vinegar a little.

    1. Hey Rachel,
      I am thrilled this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a lot for making it! Happy Sunday! xTieghan

  3. Looks delicious!! This will be my first try with dumplings – my kids love them! Can I make the dumplings now and then put them in the frig for a few hours to fry “fresh” at dinner time?

    1. Hey Melanie,
      Yes, that will be totally fine to do. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! Happy Holidays! xTieghan

    1. Hi Ciara,
      It depends how hungry you are, but I would say 6 per person. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  4. I keep homemade pot stickers in my freezer for easy light dinners. This dipping sauce was a needed change from my simple soy sauce dipping. It was the perfect combo of sweet and tangy. I keep the sauce in a small canning jar and a quick shake gets all the ingredients quickly combined.

    1. Hi Celia,
      Any other veggie that you like would be great! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  5. Hi there! I just found your recipe, but haven’t tried making them yet- I just picked up some round wrappers and can’t wait to use them. I try to avoid oil, so my question is do you think I could just steam or boil these? Do you have any tips or ideas on that? Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Lyla!! I would recommend boiling these for 2-3 minutes. That will work so well!! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you!! xTieghan

    My husband and I made these tonight but chose to air fry them instead of steaming at the end with just a spray of olive oil. Sooo yummy! We didn’t have all the ingredients for your sauce so we just whipped up a simple soy-honey-ginger blend. Perfect! Thank you for the recipe!

    These are so good, I just want to swear at them! As in “omfg, where have you been all my life, Holy $h1t!”! My hubby and I are no strangers to elaborate weeknight meals, and were prepared to a endure this recipe. But hey, what a nice surprise that these are literally the easiest recipe I’ve tested all year. I also was dubious about the sauce, but put Dennis to work on it while I fried these bad boys up. And the sauce is 1000% worth it! YES! Just fyi, this was supposed to be the side dish to the egg drop soup, but it stole the show!

  8. Hi –

    The potstickers along with the colors and texture in the sauce… perfection! I can’t wait to try them ?

    Thank you!

  9. The recipe uses won ton wrappers that are square, the pics and directions pleating, shows round wrappers? How the transition from square to round is accomplished should be detailed in the recipe.

    1. Hi Diane, I cut the squares into circle using a circle cookie cutter, BUT doing this is really an extra step and not needed. You can cut circles or leave them square, either works great! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan

    Great recipe — I believe there is a miscalculation in the sauce, 1/4 cup sesame oil is way too much.

    Cheers and thank you !

    1. You can use any varity of cabbage that you love, but yes, I use Napa cabbage. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan

  11. Hi there,
    I was wondering if you used round won-ton wrappers, or cut the square ones, or simply used square ones? I have previously gone to Chinatown to get round pot sticker wrappers but the grocery store only has square ones

    1. Hey Erica! I use square wonton wrappers and then cut them into circles. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan

  12. Hi! I am going to make these this weekend and bring for lunch to work for the week. Can I reheat them in the toaster oven? I assume that might be better than the microwave. Also, what wonton wrappers do you recommend? There’s a big Asian grocery store close to me so there are a ton of different options. Thanks!

    1. HI! I am sure the toaster oven will be great. I don’t have one though so I am not sure on cooking times. Just do a gentle reheat. I recommend using round, Asian dumpling wrappers. If you can find them at the Asian mart, that will be so good! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan

    These are so good! I have made these several times with baby Bella mushrooms and though they are some work, they’re totally worth it. If you can find the Korean chili paste mentioned in the recipe you can replace it with sambal bit use much less unless you like a lot of heat. We have had these fresh and from frozen; still just as great. I prepared them the same way in the pan but added two minutes of cook time. I mixed the sauce up in the time they took to cook so I had dinner in less than 10 minutes. Make these! 🙂

    Tried these last week. Did not like them as the recipe calls for but I guess it is personal preference….we did not like the pot stickers steamed. the next day I used the leftovers to make them and I fried them until they were nice and crispy….they were very good done like that. We dipped them in Sweet Chili pepper sauce.

    I made these today and brought them fresh from the pan to pick my son up at school. He proclaimed them “the best ever”!! Thanks for another delicious recipe.

    Hi,
    I just made these pot stickers and they were AMAZING! I trying to stick to a plant based diet and these fit the bill. Thank you for the recipe!

  17. 4 stars
    As with most Asian-inspired dishes, this one requires some up-front prep that can be time consuming – but it’s worth it. These are very tasty. I used little square wraps, so my pot stickers were little triangles instead of half moons, but they cook up just the same. Give yourself an hour-and-a-half if this is your first time making these little morsels, and be careful not to pack too much filling into those wraps. It takes surprisingly little to make them perfect.

  18. I’d like to make these as an appetizer to take to a dinner party. Any suggestions on reheating them when I get to my friends house? Quick pop in the broiler maybe?

    1. Hey Elizabeth!! Reheating in the broiler sounds like a great idea! I would just watch them very closely as the broiler works really fast, so keep an eye on them. They shouldn’t need more than a minute or 2! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much and happy Holidays!! xTieghan

  19. Wow, these potstickers look so incredible and I can’t wait to try this recipe. I’m literally salivating right now! Question: What is the dark green veggie in the photos? It looks as though it’s missing from the video and the ingredient list, but it looks delicious in the photos and I’d love to add it in!

    1. Hi Nicole! That’s kale, but I prefer to use cabbage! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much! xTieghan

  20. Hi there! These look delicious. Did you add kale to the filling in the photos? I was thinking of kale as well.

    1. HI! I think adding shredded kale would be delicious. Great idea! Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂

  21. These are absolutely fantastic! I used maple syrup instead of honey, and amino’s instead of soy sauce, and they’re delicious. Amazing! 🙂

  22. Hi! I love your cookbook and your recipes I have made so far. I am dying to make these for a gathering this weekend. Do you think I can cook the veggie filling the night before (and stick in the fridge) and assemble with the wonton wrappers and cook the following day? Thanks!

    1. HI! You can assemble the potstickers and keep, covered in the fridge until ready to cook. You can also freeze them as well. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂

    Just made these tonight, they were super delicious! I tweaked the recipe a little. I doubled the mushrooms and I added an extra tsp of soy sauce to the filling. I also added more soysauce to the dipping sauce and I reduced the sesame oil because a 1/4 seems like a lot of oil. I also used sugar instead of honey because I find honey doesn’t mix well when it’s not heated.

  24. These are AMAZING!!! I stumbled upon these on Pinterest and made for dinner last night. I am pretty sure I have told everyone I crossed since they have to make these! Thank you for posting these! Can’t wait to try more recipes

    We had this last night as we were watching your brother win gold! Shredder! Congratulations and this recipe was delicious!

  26. These look delicious! It’s usually hard to find vegetarian potstickers. Can you make them ahead of time and freeze them? Or make them and refrigerate them for a day or two? Thanks!!

    1. HI! You can freeze these!! I like to freeze before cooking, then cook from frozen. It’s really quick and easy. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂

  27. Can’t wait to try this recipe. Quick question: What is the dark leafy vegetable that you show in your pictures? I can’t tell which one of it is from you ingredients list. Congrats to your family for the gold!

    1. Hi!! It’s actually just micro greens that I sprinkled on top. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂

      1. I was wondering the same. Not the greens on top but the dark greens in the photos of the filling. It looks like Kale?

  28. I just watched your brother win Gold tonight!!! i am a Rhode Islander and I loved seeing he had a sister with a food blog! I love making potstickers and can’t wait to try your recipe! The spicy chickpeas looks wicked good, too! Best of luck to your family in Korea.

  29. your brother totally killed it on slopestyle! congrats! your fam with the face posters, so awesome.:) enjoy the games!

  30. These look delicious! Any suggestions for making them Gluten Free? I haven’t seen any GF wonton wrappers but was thinking maybe rice paper.

    1. HI! I would check Whole Foods for GF wonton wrappers as I do think they make them. If you can’t find then, rice paper will work, but I would just steam the potstickers. I think pan frying could tear the wrapper…but not sure. Either way, I think rice wrapper would be great tasting! 🙂 Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂

  31. I’m watching right now and see him in 5th position. I’m Canadian so rooting for Canada team but I’m also watching and rooting for him ? I’m watching on french canadian tv and they just mentioned his name among the ones to watch. ?

  32. Hey Tieghan,
    I love these potstickers and was just looking for a recipe for veggie potstickers! 🙂 my mom and I used to eat them too. Maybe I can make these when I visit.
    I hope your flight goes well and I’m so excited for you and Red. I’ll keep a lookout for him tomorrow night! 🙂

  33. One of our favorite things to make at home – I can’t wait to try out this veggie version! As a side note, and I know it’s rare to have leftovers with potstickers, but hubby and I do, in fact, have leftovers. Pop the potstickers into the freezer on a half size cookie sheet and freeze individually then toss into a gallon size freezer bag. They don’t even need to be thawed when you’re ready to cook them! Just pull out as many as you need and fry/steam.

    Have a wonderful, safe trip!

  34. 5 stars
    Thanks for this recipe! I’m a pescatarian and it’s difficult to find good veggie potstickers in the store. I could feel your excitement for your brother through your writing and it brought a huge smile to my face! I pray he has success and safe travels for all. Go USA!

  35. Lol, you are just A LITTLE big excited about those game, just can tell from your post 🙂 I hope you had a fun flight, it’s easy to fly now with personal screens and selection of movies games, with food coming every couple hours 🙂 Can’t wait to hear all about South Korea! And thank you for doing all the work for us– it has been on my to-do list to find snow boarding competitions times on TV, and you have done it for us!! Will be cheering for Red!! Good luck!!
