Simple snacks, hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, etc. The point is, it's ready made and all you have to do is heat them up! These are the kinds of meals I like. With a hectic schedule, it's easy to get lazy and settle for an easier, less healthy option. I love that Whole Foods and Trader Joe's have read-to-eat meals!
I found these Thai veggie potstickers at Trader Joe's. I made to sure to check the ingredients to make sure that there is no egg or milk in the product. What you want to look for are ingredients like "soy" or "wheat only."
Plus, these types of grocery stores usually label foods that are vegan.
For these little veggie dumplings, you just follow the cooking instructions as is.
Heat a pan with some vegetable or canola oil over medium heat. When the pan is hot enough add your dumplings.
These are easy to cook because you use one pan to both fry and steam them. Once your potstickers have been browned, you want to add a couple table spoons of water and cover your pan while turning your heat to low so that they can steam.
Once the water has all simmered away and the dumplings are cooked through they're done! Serve these with any dipping sauce of your choice. Soy sauce is probably best. Make sure you use low sodium as well. I usually dilute some soy sauce in a little water, add some sesame oil, a little sugar, green onions and red pepper flakes then I microwave it slightly and mix it until the sugar is dissolved. This is a great, easy dipping sauce for dumplings, gyoza or tempura!
