Serving: 12 pieces
Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

For the filling:
3 ounces glass noodles
2 cups hot water
1 tablespoon oil
1 small carrot, shredded
1 ½ cups snow peas, thinly sliced
2 pieces shiitake mushrooms
3 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons vegetarian oyster sauce
Pinch of white pepper

For the potstickers:
12 sheets rice paper
1 cup water
2 teaspoons rice vinegar, or white vinegar
2 tablespoons oil
Pinch of salt

For the dipping sauce:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons Chinkiang vinegar, or other vinegar
2 tablespoons chili oil


To soak the glass noodles:
  • In a bowl, add the glass noodles, and pour in the hot water. Soak for about 5 minutes until softened. Drain the glass noodles and cut into 2 inches long.
To cook the filling:
    • In a pan over high heat, add the oil, carrot, snow peas, shiitake mushrooms, and garlic. Stir fry until aromatic and softened for about 2 minutes. (To make the potstickers super crispy, we cook the ingredients first. So the liquid would come out now and not later.)
    • Then add the glass noodles (the glass noodles help to absorb the liquid in the filling).
    • Season them with vegetarian oyster sauce and white pepper. Mix well.
    • Cool down for about 5 minutes.
To make the dipping sauce:
  • In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce, Chinkiang vinegar (or other vinegar), and chili oil.
To assemble the potstickers:
  • In a bowl, pour inside the water and rice vinegar (or white vinegar). Whisk. (Vinegar helps with the browning of the rice paper while pan-frying. )
  • Place a sheet of rice paper on a working surface. Lightly brush the water mixture on both sides until softened and not overly wet. (The oil will splatter a lot when the rice paper has too much moisture on it.)
  • Place about a tablespoon of filling in the bottom corner. Fold it up, fold the sides toward the center, and roll it up all the way. Repeat with the rest.
To pan-fry:
  • In a pan over medium heat, pour the oil inside, and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. (Salt seasons the potstickers. It also absorbs the moisture, so the oil won’t splatter.)
  • Transfer the potstickers to the pan. Pan-fry until crispy, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove and do the same with the rest.
  • Serve the potstickers with the dipping sauce!
