I love going to a Chinese restaurant and enjoying pot stickers. But I don’t like how unhealthy they can be. So I decided to make a vegetable version. If you love pot stickers, you’ll love these Easy Vegetable Pot Stickers.
During the past few weeks, I’ve been a mean cooking machine. From the amazing cake mix cookies to the incredibly popular Chicken Fajita Tacos, I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen and then sharing with all of you.
If you have little people that don’t really like vegetables, this is a great way to sneak those in during lunch or dinner.

- 3 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
- 2 tbsp rice-wine vinegar
- 3 tbsp grated carrots
- 3 tbsp corn kernels
- 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed with excess water squeezed out
- 16 wonton wrappers
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp grated ginger
1. In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, 2 tbsp soy sauce, sugar and ginger together and set aside. This is your dipping sauce.
2. Use a section of wax paper and put wonton wrappers on the wax paper. Place a small about of spinach, corn and carrots in the middle of each wonton wrapper. Drizzle a small amount of the remaining soy sauce on top of the veggies on each wonton.
3. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil while you are finishing the wontons. Get another small bowl of water and fill with water. Dip your finger into the water and apply the water to the sides of the wonton wrapper. Fold the wonton wrapper over and pinch the edges together and make sure you have sealed the sides.
4. Once you have all your wonton wrappers filled and sealed, boil for 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove pot stickers from water and drain. Cool on platter and serve with dipping sauce.
I used two separate sheets of wax paper and did everything in two batches. While I was sealing up the first batch, my husband was putting vegetables on the second batch.
You could have your children help with placing the vegetables on the wonton wrapper. I know when my children help make a meal, they seem to eat better.
I folded mine into triangles, but as long as the ends are sealed, you can fold them however your want.
I learned that you need to gently place each wonton into the boiling water because if not, they all bunch together and it makes taking them out really difficult. On my second batch, I placed each one in separately right around the edge of the pot and they didn’t stick together. Another reason why you probably want to work in two batches.
These were a huge hit with the whole family! It’s low calories and each pot sticker contains yummy nutrients from the variety of vegetables. I’ll definitely be making these again and I’m already thinking of different fillers…especially a dessert variety (shhh, it includes strawberries)!
