GLUTEN-FREE POTSTICKERS RECIPE

Making the gluten-free wonton wrappers from scratch is not a big task. I usually allocate a day of the month and make a few batches, so I have them ready when the cravings arise for potstickers or dumplings.

Unfortunately, our local Chinese restaurant doesn't offer gluten-free potstickers, so I like to have them on hand. You can also buy them online, but for the price, the effort is so worth it. I can also control what's added to my fillings.

  3. Add the chicken and the filling is done.

ARE THERE GLUTEN-FREE POTSTICKERS?

Traditionally no, you did not find gluten-free potstickers. But due to more people being celiac or eating gluten-free there are more choices of gluten-free potstickers you can either make your own homemade gf potstickers or buy them online. You can get chicken, vegetable or pork. There are other fillings depending on where you shop.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DUMPLINGS AND POTSTICKERS?

Potstickers are crispier on the outside and the wrapper is thinner. But other than that, they're pretty similar.

WHAT OTHER FILLINGS CAN I PLACE IN THESE GLUTEN-FREE POTSTICKERS?

Protein - Try different proteins like ground pork, ground beef or shrimp. You can even do half and half combinations.

Veggies - I am hesitant to even mention specific veggies as there are so many options like grated cauliflower and/or broccoli.

Gf potstickers are versatile in terms of what you can serve them with. This is not an exhaustive list but will give you a few ideas.

You can store them in the refrigerator for up to two days. Just remember to place them apart on a baking tray or line a plate and then store it in an airtight container or with plastic wrap.

Yes. I like to make a few batches. Freeze them individually on a baking tray. Once frozen, transfer them into a freezer bag or airtight container. You can freeze them for up to 3 months.

WHAT VARIATIONS CAN I MAKE TO THIS GF POTSTICKER RECIPE?

Egg-free - The filling of these potstickers is egg-free, you will need to check the gluten-free wonton wrappers you use.
