Pot Sticker Dough

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. I have begun this dietary change to improve my health. My health and blood tests have improved. But if you have autoimmune illnesses than you know that there are good days and then there are bad days. Although sine days my fibromyalgia is painful, some days I also suffer from pure exhaustion my health is better than it used to be. I know I am on a road to recovery. I know that it will take time to regain my health. It won’t happen overnight.

Since I revamped my diet if I want to eat something I need to make it from scratch. I haven’t had a pot sticker since going grain free in Oct of 2017. I really wanted to have potstickers. This meant that I would need to make the potsticker dough and roll them from scratch. So I decided to experiment and see if I could create a potsticker dough. This is the dough I came up with.

I recently purchased a tortilla press and was excited to use this to roll out my dough. I then rolled my dough into little balls. I place them on the tortilla press with a little bit of plastic and press. It worked like a charm. The dough was pressed flat. Then it was a matter of creating a recipe for the potsticker meat. I was over the moon that I could once again enjoy potstickers once again.

Makes roughly 28 potstickers.

*Nutritional Facts are listed below

 

2 cups cassava flour

2 teaspoons pink salt

1/2 cup boiling water

1 1/2 cup cold water

 

Combine the cassava flour and salt. Make a hole in the center of the cassava flour and pour in the boiling water. Mix the water into the cassava flour until you get a slightly mealy texture. Stir in the cold water and knead until you form a dough ball. Knead for 5 minutes until smooth and slightly tacky. Let rest 20 minutes under a damp towel. After 20 minutes knead the dough briefly.  Pull apart and roll into small balls. Using a tortilla press place a small piece of plastic down on the press. Place the dough on the plastic fold the plastic over and cover on top of the dough.  The dough should be between the plastic press down on the tortilla press. Lift up the top of the press and lift the plastic up and remove the flattened potsticker dough. Repeat with each small ball of dough until all your potsticker dough has been pressed out.
