These savoury green treats will make veggie lovers happy. Be sure to keep the wrappers covered with a kitchen towel or they will dry out quickly.


Edamame (shelled)

2 cup(s), cooked


1 cup(s), diced

Minced garlic

2 tsp(s)


6 tbsp(s), minced, divided

Raw egg

1 large

Miso paste

1 tbsp(s), red variety

Dark sesame oil

1 tbsp(s)

Sriracha hot sauce

1 tsp(s), or more to taste


2 tsp(s), to dust surface

Round wonton wrappers

30 item(s), round shape (about 5 oz)


2 tbsp(s), minced

Green cabbage

8 leaf/leaves, Napa variety


  1. Combine edamame, zucchini, and garlic in a food processor; pulse until mixture is chunky. Add 1/4 c scallions, egg, miso, oil, and Sriracha; pulse, scraping down sides of bowl, until just combined. You should have about 2 1/4 cups filling.
  2. Lightly dust a parchment-lined work surface with cornstarch. Holding a wrapper in one hand, spread 1 rounded Tbsp edamame filling onto wrapper, leaving an 1/8-inch border. Gather and pleat wrapper around filling, leaving a small opening at the top. Stand filled dumplings on parchment and continue filling remaining wrappers, covering finished dumplings with a kitchen towel to prevent drying. Sprinkle tops of each dumpling with a few pieces each minced carrots and remaining minced scallions.
  3. Line a bamboo or metal steamer basket with 2 cabbage leaves. Arrange dumplings on leaves in a single layer, 1/2-inch apart and 1-inch from the edge of the steamer basket. The size of your steamer rack will determine how many dumplings can be cooked at one time.
  4. Bring water to a boil in covered steamer over high heat. Carefully place steamer basket into steamer, cover, and steam until wrappers are translucent, 5-7 minutes. Carefully remove dumplings from steamer and continue steaming remaining dumplings using fresh cabbage leaves and replenishing steamer with more boiling water, if necessary. Serve immediately.


Serving size: 2 dumplings. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, reduced-sodium soy sauce or chili oil (not included in Points value).
