Ground Turkey Potstickers and Dipping Sauce

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. I am on a journey to discover a healthier me. I am under the care of a Functional doctor. I still have days where I am beyond exhausted, have pain or chronic urticaria (hives). Hives are the worst. They can wake you up only to leave you lying awake miserable as the itch they produce just doesn’t go away. I am feeling better and have had enough energy to go to the gym and participate in pool classes.

I believe we should let those who are important to us know that they are important or that you love them. None of us know how long we have. I want those who bless my life to know that they bless my life. I hope that in some small way I can be a small ray of sunshine in your day. That we can encourage each other to have a positive perspective and go out and share it with those around us. We never know what someone is going through. Sometimes a smile, kind word or a hug can help change a bad day into a good day. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

I had been craving pot stickers and got the notion that I could make the potsticker dough. I needed to make the filling. I decided to make it with ground turkey. Coconut aminos are a great substitute for soy sauce. All Asian food has ginger. Fresh ginger is preferred but if you don’t have it powdered ginger is ok. I will be honest I was impressed with myself when I made these. They are also yummy the following day.

Nutritional Facts are based on the filling only. The Potsticker dough has nutritional facts to get a clearer picture add the two together. The dipping sauce is not included.

1 recipe Potsticker Dough

1 lb ground turkey

1/2 cup chicken broth

1 1/2 teaspoons monk fruit sweetener

1 tablespoon coconut aminos

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon freshly ground ginger

1/2 freshly ground or minced garlic

1 teaspoon salt

2 whole scallions chopped

1/2 teaspoon sesame chili oil

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

 

In a bowl combine all the ingredients. Mix with your hands until the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Put about 2 teaspoons on a rolled out potsticker dough. Then push the side in and crimp and pinch, crimp and pinch and push the side in. Make sure it is pinched closed. Finish putting the filling in the potstickers and pinching and crimping until all the potstickers are completed. Set aside on a platter. Boil water place potstickers in boiling water and boil approximately 3 – 4 minutes. Don’t crowd the pot and boil them up in batches. Remove and then fry the potstickers until the sides are lightly browned 2 -5 minutes.
