A Balanced Combination of Veggies and Spices

Wontons are delicious due to the balanced combination of veggies, spices, and the wrapper. Adding a dip on the side enhances the flavors, as well.

To make the stuffing, I used cabbage, carrots, French beans, green onions, minced ginger and garlic, and pepper powder. The wrapper is made with plain flour, corn flour, liquid butter, and a bit of salt.

You can use any vegetable of your choice to make the stuffing. However, I do recommend the combination in this recipe, as it tastes great.

These wontons are healthy because of the vegetables in the stuffing and because they are steamed, rather than fried. I do not use any oil in this recipe.

Serve these dumplings hot with a spicy garlic sauce or a sweet-spicy tomato ketchup. They are the perfect evening snack for the whole family.

Now on to the detailed recipe.
