Steamed Turkey Dumplings Recipe

Steamed Turkey Dumplings Recipe

This is a great "light" appetizer that tastes wonderful, but will not make you feel like you've eaten a meal. They are easy to make and a joy to serve--try them at your next party! — Donna Bardocz, Howell, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Cook: 10 min./batch YIELD:20 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 pound lean ground turkey
  • 20 wonton wrappers
  • 9 lettuce leaves
  • DIPPING SAUCE:
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons finely chopped green onion
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the onions, cornstarch, ginger, soy sauce and oil. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well.
  • 2. Place 1 tablespoon turkey mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Moisten edges with water. Fold one corner diagonally over filling and press edges to seal.
  • 3. Line a steamer basket with 3 lettuce leaves. Arrange one-third of the dumplings 1 in. apart over lettuce; place in a large saucepan over 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 10-12 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165°. Discard lettuce. Repeat twice.
  • 4. Combine sauce ingredients; serve with dumplings. Yield: 20 appetizers (1/3 cup sauce).
