I do not remember where this recipe came from but it is one of my Vegan son’s favorites.
Recipe Name: POT STICKERS (VEGAN)
1 Cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 Cup unbleached white flour
1/2 Cup plus 1 T warm water
1/3 Cup cooking sherry
1/2 Cup minced onion
1/2 Cup thinly sliced green cabbage
2 cloves garlic – minced
1 tbsp freshly grated ginger root
1/2 Cup minced celery
3 tbsp minced green onion
3 tbsp minced cilantro
5 large mushrooms – coarsely chopped
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp salt or herbal salt substitute
In large bowl, combine flours and water. Knead 15 minutes, adding more
flour to water to create a smooth, pliable dough. Cover dough tightly with
plastic wrap and let rest for 20 minutes.
Heat sherry in wok over medium heat. Stir-fry onion and cabbage until
limp. Add remaining pot sticker ingredients. Cook, stirring for 2 minutes.
Remove mixture from heat and place in colander to drain excess moisture.
Divide dough into 24 small balls. On a lightly floured board, flatten each
ball of dough into a 3-4 inch circle. Fill each circle with about 1 T
filling. Fold circle into half moon shape; pinch edges to seal.
Lightly coat two large nonstick skillets (or work in batches with one
skillet) with vegetable cooking spray. Set over medium heat. When hot, add
pot stickers, seam side up, flattening slightly on the bottom.
When the bottoms of pot stickers are golden brown, add 1/2 C water per
Cover and steam for 20 minutes.
Makes 24 pot stickers.

NOTES : I usually use pot sticker “skins” found in the produce
section of my local supermarket - this is probably not as healthy
as the way outlined above, as I’m sure they are made with all
white flour, and I don’t know the fat content, but it does save
time, and they do an adequate job of holding the filling.
Also, you can freeze the “raw” pot stickers in a single layer on a
cookie sheet, and when solidly frozen, transfer to ziplocs or a
tupperware. Be Sure They are Solidly Frozen, or you will end up
with pot stickers en masse (trust me). To cook, just plop the
frozen pot stickers in a pan and proceed as usual.
