Gingery Steamed Dumplings
This is one of the few things in life that sounds too good to be true, but
1 package Garden Sausage (Wholesome & Hearty Foods, INc.)
fresh hot-tasting powdered ginger
Kikkoman lite soy sauce
1 package won ton wrappers
a few Chinese style pea pods
Warm 4 patties at a time in the microwave for about 30 seconds, which is
hopefully time enough to thaw them but not make them too hot to handle.
Lay out several won ton wrappers, then put a little wad of the Garden
Sausage (I got about 6 dumplings per patty) in the center of each wrapper.
Sprinkle with ginger and soy sauce. I put a little slice of pea pod in
about 1/2 of the dumplings just to make it more interesting.
Pinch the won ton wrappers closed at the top. Put as many as will fit
side by side into a steamer basket in a sauce pan (at least that's how I
did it because the rice steamer was occupado) with a little boiling water
in the bottom. Cover and steam for 5+ minutes. The won ton wrappers I
used came covered in a little flour and I figured that when the wrappers
looked moist rather than floury they were done.
Serve with little dishes of hot Asian-style mustard and /or light soy
