Chinese Mushroom Dumplings with Sweet Chili Ginger Sesame Sauce

It may be another year, however I’m despite everything revealing the “superior to takeout” style plans… and I am still SO EXCITED about them. All in all these plans are brisk and simple to put together and consistently come out delightful. Thus a lot more advantageous than requesting takeout! Besides, where we live in Colorado the takeout circumstance is basically nonexistent except if you need pizza or wings. The Asian food absolutely is nothing uncommon. So as opposed to requesting in or going out, I have a ton of fun making the plans like this at home!

Throughout the years I’ve shared a bunch of takeout style plans. In the event that I needed to pick a couple of top choices, it would be these brief nut noodles, my fiery dan noodles, and my kung pao cauliflower… all so great. Be that as it may, you folks? These dumplings? I figure we may have another top pick.

Once more, these are another formula I made over Christmas break for my family. I don’t think there was a solitary individual out of our twenty or more team that didn’t appreciate these. The blend of the natively constructed dumplings and the sauce? Simply tasty.

Better than Takeout Chinese Mushroom Dumplings with Sweet Chili Ginger Sesame Sauce. Easy homemade vegetarian dumplings


  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

  • 2 shallots, chopped

  • 4 cups shiitake or cremini mushrooms, chopped

  • 1 inch fresh ginger, grated

  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated

  • 2 cups roughly chopped spinach or bok choy

  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or tamari

  • black pepper

  • 30-34 round dumpling or wonton wrappers

  • 1/3 cup raw sesame seeds

  • 2 green onions, chopped, for serving

  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil

  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce

  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce or tamari

  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses or honey

  • 1-2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes using more or less to your taste

  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger, peeled and grated


  • Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the shallots and cook until fragrant and lightly caramelized, 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms, ginger, and garlic, and cook, stirring occasionally until the mushrooms have cooked down, about 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce and large pinch of pepper. Stir in the greens. Cook another 2-3 minutes, until the mushrooms are caramelized. Remove from the heat and let cool. 
  •  To assemble, spoon 1 tablespoon of filling onto each wrapper. Brush water around the edges of the wrapper. Fold the edges of the wrapper up around the filling and pinch in the center to seal. Repeat with the remaining wrappers.
  • Place the sesame seeds in a shallow bowl. Brush the bottoms of the dumplings with water and then dredge them in the sesame seeds.
  • Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, add the dumplings and cook until the bottoms are light golden brown, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully pour 1/4 cup of water into the skillet, it will splatter, so stand back. Immediately cover with a tight-fitting lid. Turn heat to medium-low and let the dumplings steam for 5-6 minutes. Serve warm with sauce (see below) and green onions. 
  • To make the sauce, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Serve alongside the dumplings.
