Gluten-Free Pot Stickers


  • Wrappers:
  • 125g chickpea flour
  • 125g tapioca starch
  • 125g sweet rice flour
  • 25g cassava flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 cup water, warmed to 110F
  • Filling:
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

YIELD: 30-40 pot stickers


Whisk together all the dry ingredients for the wrappers in a medium bowl. Pour in the warm water and mix together with a fork until shaggy and loose.

Knead the dough for 2-3 minutes by hand until it forms a smooth ball. Place a damp cloth or paper towel on the dough to keep it from drying out.

Mix all the filling ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.

Roll out balls of dough about 15g each, using a rolling pin and tapioca starch. Keep the wrappers covered under a damp cloth while working.

To assemble the dumplings, add a tablespoon of filling into the center of a wrapper, using your fingers wet the edge of the wrapper and create pleats.

Cook the dumplings immediately or else freeze them for later.

Heat a nonstick pan with a tablespoon of oil, over medium-high heat. Add the pot stickers, making sure they don’t touch. Pan-fry for 2-3 minutes until the bottoms are golden brown.

Add a quarter cup of water and quickly cover the pan with the lid. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 5-6 minutes. The filling should be at least 165°F inside.
