Turkey Pot Stickers - 16.5g Carbs, 0.9g Fiber

From: Cooking Light, NOVEMBER 2002 Dim sum, a popular dining tradition in China's Canton province, consists of many small dishes, including bite-sized dumplings like these. You can assemble these ahead and cook them just before serving. If you can't find gyoza skins, you can substitute won ton wrappers.

--Dipping sauce: 2 Tbsp water 2 Tbsp rice vinegar 2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce 1/2 tsp dark sesame oil 2 garlic cloves, minced

Dumplings: 1 cup sliced shiitake mushroom caps 1/2 cup sliced green onions 1/4 cup sliced carrot 2 Tbsp minced peeled fresh ginger 2 Tbsp rice vinegar 3 large egg whites, lightly beaten 2 cups chopped skinned cooked turkey 24 (4-inch) gyoza skins 2 tsp vegetable oil, divided 1/2 cup water, divided

To prepare dipping sauce, combine first 5 ingredients, stirring well with a whisk.

To prepare dumplings, place mushrooms, onions, carrot, ginger, and vinegar in a food processor; pulse until coarsely chopped, scraping sides. Combine mushroom mixture and egg whites in a large bowl; add turkey, stirring until combined.

Working with 1 gyoza skin at a time (cover remaining skins to keep from drying), spoon about 1 tablespoon turkey mixture into center of each skin. Moisten edges of skin with water. Fold in half, pinching edges together to seal. Place dumpling on a baking sheet (cover loosely with a towel to keep from drying). Repeat procedure with remaining skins and turkey mixture.

Heat 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange half of dumplings in pan; cover and cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn dumplings; add 1/4 cup water. Cover and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from pan; keep warm.

Wipe pan dry with a paper towel. Repeat procedure with remaining vegetable oil, dumplings, and water. Serve warm with dipping sauce.
