There's no chance you can eat just one of these dumplings. The creamy soybean filling is perfectly countered by a light, savory dipping sauce. A great starter to any meal!

Edamame Dumplings
  • 12 oz shelled edamame, cooked according to package instructions and drained
  • 4 oz unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 12 oz package square wonton wrappers
Dipping Sauce
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp chili paste (sambal oelek)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced on the bias
Edamame Dumplings
  1. Combine cooked edamame, butter, heavy cream and salt in the bowl of food processor fitted with a steel blade.

  2. Process until very smooth, 3-5 mins. Filling can be made 1-2 days ahead, covered and chilled.
  3. Set up your dumpling-making station with the wonton wrappers covered loosely with a damp towel, a small dish of water, edamame filling, a tsp measuring spoon and a parchment-lined sheet tray.
  4. Take out 3-4 wrappers at a time and lay them on the counter with the point facing up. Moisten the two top edges of the wrapper by dipping your finger in water and rubbing it along the edge.
  5. Place two rounded teaspoons of filling in the center and fold over to form a triangle with the wide side at the bottom. Press to adhere.
  6. Make a small crease on the bottom side and bring the right and left points together. Moisten to adhere. Place the dumpling on the lined sheet tray and cover with a slightly damp towel.
  7. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  8. Place a bamboo steamer in an inch or two of boiling water in a wok or fitted over a saucepan.
  9. Lay the dumplings, not touching, in the lined steamer basket. Cover and steam until tender and cooked through, about 10 mins.
  10. Serve with the dipping sauce.
Dipping Sauce
  1. Whisk together all of the ingredients until the sugar and honey are dissolved.
