Tips

One prepared you can freeze them to eat on a lazy day - but BE WARNED freeze them separately on tray first before you bag them up - otherwise you will end up with a big ole mess when you try to separate them for cooking - they still taste cooking but look uggggly and after all the time you spent making the pretty little shapes it might just ruin your day.


Directions

For the wrappers;
-Sift the flour into a bowl add salt
-Add boiling water and stir with a wooden spoon until a ball.
-Cover with a damp cloth for 1 hour
-Knead for 5 Minutes until smooth
-Roll into a log shape then cut in half, and half again, continue until you have about 50 pieces.
- with a rolling pin roll into little circles. (if you want to make them perfect you can cut them with a cookie cutter).
- to store you can pile one on top of the other but make sure they are floured.
OR - you could just cheat and buy the wrappers ready made :)

For the Filling:

-Cook the Quinoa (and allow to cool)
-Boil the cabbage (allow to cool and the put into a cloth or clean towel and squeeze out as much water as possible)
-Gently fry the leek, mushroom, until the begin to soften. Then add the ginger and garlic until then aromas begin. Set aside and allow to cool
- Once cooled - make up the mixture of soy, sesame oil and mirin.
Mixure everything together and salt and pepper to taste.

To make up take one wrapper.
- add one tsp of mixture
- with your finger wet the edges of the circle.
-start at the left side and crimp the top layer and squeeze it fixed to the top. It's easier to watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spsGbDWauf4

To cook

You can either steam or boil them (for more healthy feeling days) add them to soup (like miso) or for the best treat fry them yuuuuuuum - the best way is to steam them a little first and them fry them gently in a little oil. (if they have been frozen you and defrost them and fry the straight away)
-because the filling is already coked we dont' need to be concern about the filling being properly cooked through - just warmed :)

Finally mix the dipping ingredients together and enjoy :)
