Cabbage, Watercress and Pine Nut Dumplings

  • TOTAL TIME: 1 HR
  • SERVINGS: Makes about 3 dozen
  • HEALTHY
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  • VEGETARIAN

Be sure to chop the filling for these vegetarian dumplings with a knife; they become too wet and pasty in a food processor. We liked the dumplings boiled in water, but they're also delicious cooked in a steamer.

  1. 1 1/2 cups (packed) coarsely chopped watercress
  2. 1 1/2 cups (packed) coarsely chopped napa cabbage
  3. 2 scallions, finely chopped
  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  5. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons pine nuts, finely chopped
  6. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  8. One 12-ounce package gyoza wrappers or wonton wrappers
  9. Cornstarch, for dusting
  10. Soy sauce, for dipping
  1. On a work surface, combine the chopped watercress, cabbage, scallions, garlic and pine nuts and finely chop them all together. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and season with the salt and white pepper. Knead the mixture slightly to wilt the greens.
  2. Spread 6 gyoza wrappers on a work surface and brush the edges with water. Spoon 2 teaspoons of the filling into the center of each wrapper and fold in half; press the edges firmly to seal, pressing out any air pockets. Transfer the dumplings to a cornstarch-dusted baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  3. In a pot of boiling salted water, cook the dumplings until tender and translucent, about 3 minutes. Alternatively, steam the dumplings on a rack set on a pan over boiling water. Serve the dumplings hot with soy sauce.
Make Ahead The uncooked dumplings can be frozen on a baking sheet, then transferred to a resealable plastic bag and frozen for up to 2 months. Boil or steam the frozen dumplings.
