Edamame Dumplings

Recipe by  

"These are inspired by a dim sum item I had from a fancy Asian-fusion restaurant in Manhattan. They're delicious served with a simple broth and have a silky, savory edamame filling inside. They are time consuming, but relatively easy to make. You can make them ahead of time and freeze them for future use. The dumplings are meant to be steamed or boiled but taste great deep fried as well. Garnish with sesame oil, sesame seeds, and sliced green onion."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Add edamame and boil for 10 minutes; drain. Rinse with cold water.
  2. Place edamame in a food processor; turn processor on to low. Drizzle in 1/4 cup water and olive oil while continuing to process until combined. Turn off the food processor and add the sour cream, salt, pepper, green onion, garlic, lemon juice, and hot sauce. Process until mixture is smooth.
  3. Place 1 teaspoon of the mixture in the center of each won ton wrapper. Bring 2 opposite corners of the wrapper together to form a triangle; pinch the edges closed. Bring farthest corners of the triangle together and overlap one another. Use a little bit of water on the corners and pinch them together to ensure they stay together.
  4. Stir together 6 cups water and the bouillon cubes in a large, deep skillet over medium heat; bring to a gentle boil. Lay the wontons in the water, assuring they don't touch one another; cook until tender, about 5 minutes; plate. Ladle broth from skillet over won tons to serve.

Great vegetarian potstickers! We did fry ours after boiling with peanut&dark sesame oil until light golden brown on either side. Yum!

Not bad, but I also wouldn't be so quick to make them again. Something tastes "off" with the combination of ingredients. I've only ever had edamame dumplings at my favorite Thai restaurant so I could just be used to their preparation. A really great dipping sauce would have made these much more desirable!

These were delicious! The filling was so easy to make, just dump everything in the food processor. The longest part is just folding up the won ton wrappers. Will make again and again.

This was pretty darn good! We've never tried Edamame before, so this was our first foray into soybeans. Even my husband liked these. He said they were pretty darn good and ate 5 himself. We didn't use any dipping sauce, just the bouillon. I did make some minor changes to make it a little more healthy. I changed the sour cream for fat free cottage cheese, with 1 TBS. lemon juice, and 1/6 cup of fat free milk. I used canola oil since I had not olive oil. I also added more garlic, more lemon, and more green onions as we like all those flavors. Overall, a great start to using edamame and to ravioli.

Simply delicious, and easy!!

These were quite good, even better the next day. I am the only one in my house who likes edamame so I cut the recipe in half, but even then put generous portions of the filling in each wrapper so I ended up with about 24. I only boiled a few tonight, and then a few the next day since it just me eating them. Still a very good recipe. Thanks!

Delicious. I halved the amounts of salt and pepper and used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. It took me longer to fold the wontons than the recipe suggests, but perhaps that's because I'm a wonton novice. It was worth it, nevertheless. I was amazed at how the amount of filling was almost perfect for the number of wonton wrappers. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
