Most of us in the studio happen to be gluten free, so we love finding alternatives to delicious staples in various cuisines. Asian food generally offers great gluten free options, but dumplings are something that are traditionally always made with wheat wrappers. On top of that, potsticker filling often includes soy sauce that’s made with wheat. As you can see in the printable template below, our gluten free potstickers recipe only includes instructions for making the pork and ginger filling. You have the choice of either making your own wrapper dough, or purchasing gluten free wrappers at your local Asian foods store. We found that a lot of GF wrapper recipes turned out dry and stiff. To fold your potstickers, you want to make sure that the wrappers have enough elasticity and malleability to enclose the filling. We ended up using this recipe from Andrea Nguyen.
Our gluten free potstickers recipe features the classic Asian flavors of pork and ginger, but has an added crunchy texture with water chestnuts. After cooking up your dumplings, you can enjoy with a flavorful dipping sauce like our simple mixture of tamari, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil. We have to say that this recipe comes out lighter than regular potstickers, so they are perfect as an appetizer. We hope you enjoy!
