I’d been planning on trying to make these bad boys since a friend (who was vegetarian at the time) bonded with me over dumplings and insisted that I give making these a shot. I was worried about the texture of the soybeans in practice, but wow, these were surprisingly good! Then again, how often is fried food truly and really bad?


  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/4 cup of edamame beans
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 inch of grated ginger
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp Sriracha
  • 1 packet wonton wrappers
  1. Mash the edamame beans into a fine paste.
  2. Stir in the onions, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, sesame oil, pepper flakes, and Sriracha.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. To each wonton wrapper, add about a teaspoon to a teaspoon and a half of the filling and seal the wonton in half along a diagonal with a wet finger.
  5. Heat about an inch and a half of vegetable oil in a walled pan. Add the dumplings a few at a time, cooking until the dumplings are golden brown on both sides.
  6. Serve warm with scallions on top.
