Simple vegetable-packed potstickers that are fun and delicious! Who needs takeout when you have such a simple recipe in your back pocket? A simple swap makes them vegan!


1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 1-inch nub fresh ginger, minced
1 shallot, minced
8 oz. baby bella mushrooms, minced
1 medium carrot, shredded
1 and 1/2 cups finely shredded cabbage
1 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 tsp. sesame oil
olive oil, for cooking
12 oz. wonton wraps*
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp. honey OR maple syrup OR agave OR granulated sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
small squeeze Sriracha, to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger, and shallot, and sauté until fragrant and slightly translucent, 1-2 minutes. Add your mushrooms, carrot, and cabbage, and cook until you have about 2 cups. It’ll look like a lot once you start cooking, but everything will cook down.
  2. Add your soy sauce and sesame oil, and stir to combine. Carefully taste, and add salt and pepper if needed.
  3. Add 1 tsp. filling to the middle of a wonton wrapper, wet the edge, and pinch it shut. Continue with the rest of the filling. I ended up with about 30 potstickers total.
  4. Add a small drizzle of olive oil to a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add a layer of your potstickers, cooking until the bottoms are caramelized, 3-5 minutes.
  5. Once caramelized, add 3/4 cup of water, cover with a lid, and cook another 5-6 minutes, or until the potstickers are steamed through. The water may not all evaporate – that’s okay. If not, just discard it in the sink.
  6. Remove the potstickers from the pan and place them in a heatproof container, covered by aluminum foil. Continue cooking the rest of the potstickers in the same way.
  7. Mix your sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Serve with the cooked potstickers immediately!


*Make sure yours are vegan if desired. Here’s a very easy-looking recipe for vegan wrappers if you can’t find them in your store.
