Tofu-Carrot Pot Stickers
14 oz firm tofu, cut into small cubes
2 carrots, peeled and grated
1/4 onion, peeled and grated
1 T. toasted sesame oil
1 T. soy sauce
1 egg, lightly beaten
gyoza wrappers or egg roll wrappers cut into quarters
Mix the first six ingredients in a bowl with a potato masher. Put a small amount of filling in the middle of each wrapper. Using your finger, wet the outer edge of the wrapper and then fold over to make a triangle. To cook, place a pan over medium-high heat. Add about a tablespoon of oil. When the oil is heated, add the pot stickers to the pan and cover for about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of water, turn to medium heat and cover for 2 minutes. Uncover and turn to high heat until all water has been evaporated. Enjoy with the dipping sauce below.
Mix together soy sauce, toasted sesame oil and vinegar to taste.
