Green Chili-Winter Squash Dumplings with Orange-Soy Dipping Sauce

  • Prep Time 0:30
  • Cook Time 0:20
  • Estimated Cost $6.00

These vegetarian dumplings (vegan, if you use egg-free won ton wrappers) can constitute a whole meal if you’re in the right mood. Otherwise, serve them as part of a homemade dim sum spread and Tsing Tao.


  • about 30 small square won ton wrappers $2
  • 1/2 winter squash, peeled, seeded and finely diced $2
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced Pantry
  • 1 green jalapeño, seeded and finely diced $0.50
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, chopped $1
  • 5 tbsp soy sauce, divided Pantry
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil, divided Pantry
  • 1 orange, juiced $0.50
  • 1 tsp sugar or honey Pantry


  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat. Add squash and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic, jalapeno and cilantro and cook for another 5-6 minutes or until squash begins to soften. Drizzle soy sauce over entire contents of the pan and cook for another minute or two, until the sauce is absorbed. Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  2. To assemble the dumplings, lay one won ton wrapper on a clean, flat surface and put 2-3 teaspoons of the filling in the center. Dip a clean finger or pastry brush into a small bowl of water and gently wet the edges. Gently pinch the corners together to form a point and seal the edges to seal in the filling. Repeat with remaining ingredients and set the assembled dumplings on a clean plate.
  3. To cook, heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Place as many dumplings as will fit into the pan (with space between them) and cook for 2-3 minutes, allowing the dumplings to develop a crisp crust on the bottom. Once crust has formed, pour 3 tbsp water over the dumplings and immediately cover with the fitted lid. Allow to steam, covered for 2 minutes.
  4. Carefully remove the lid and allow any excess water to cook away, moving the pan around a few times.
  5. To make the sauce, whisk together the soy sauce, orange juice and sugar or honey. Serve alongside the dumplings.

Makes about 30 dumplings and 1/3 cup sauce.
