Ingredients

 

50g mushrooms

4 cloves garlic

4g fresh ginger

50g spring onions

fresh chilli, to taste

30g bean sprouts

60g carrots

10g fresh coriander

4 tsp gluten free soy sauce

500g extra lean pork mince (blitz your own)

salt and pepper

3 tsp sesame oil

15 x 16cm round rice papers

Method

Use a food processor or a knife to finely chop mushrooms, garlic, ginger, spring onions, chilli, bean sprouts, carrots and coriander. Mix ingredients in a bowl and pour in soy sauce. Stir in pork mince and season with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick frying pan and fry pork in 1 tsp of sesame oil until pork is fully cooked. Allow the pork to cool slightly. Wet several rice papers at once and lay them separately and flat on the bench to soften. For small dumplings cut the softened papers in half. Place a heaped teaspoon of filling into each paper half and gently fold one end over the filling, tuck in the sides then wrap over the top. Gently stretch the paper so there are no holes. (To fold the large dumplings follow the directions on the back of the rice paper packet, it is the same method as folding fresh rice paper rolls.) Heat a large non-stick frying pan with 2 tsp of sesame oil and gently place dumplings on the pan. Cook each side until golden. Keep dumplings separated as they stick together and tear. Serve hot.

If the small dumplings are too time consuming then use whole rice papers to make large dumplings.
