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
- Mash the edamame beans into a fine paste.
- Stir in the onions, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, sesame oil, pepper flakes, and Sriracha.
- Add salt and pepper to taste.
- 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.
- 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.
- Serve warm with scallions on top.
