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

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the onions, cornstarch, ginger, soy sauce and oil. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well.
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.
Line a steamer basket with three lettuce leaves. Arrange a 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 thermometer reads 165°. Discard lettuce. Repeat twice.
