- 1 tablespoon natural grapeseed oil
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1/2 cup grated carrot
- 1/2 cup diced celery stalks
- 1/4 cup diced scallions
- 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
- 1/2 cup shredded cabbage
- 1/3 cup lean ground pork
- 4 teaspoons Chipotle Aioli Mix
- 40 wonton wrappers
- 5 teaspoons Vegetable Broth Mix
- 5 cups hot water
- Place a 10-inch non-stick frying pan over medium heat and add the Natural Grapeseed Oil.
- When the oil is hot enough, quickly fry the mushrooms for approximately 8 minutes or till they become golden brown.
- Add the celery, carrots, and scallions, stir to combine correctly. Cook for two more minutes before you add the cabbage and the grated ginger. Cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the cabbage becomes soft.
- Remove the mushroom veggie mixture from heat and transfer it to a medium-sized bowl. Leave it to cool slightly before adding the Chipotle Aioli Mix and ground pork. Toss to ensure that you have a well-combined filing.
- At the center of each wonton wrapper, place a teaspoon or two of the filling and then use water to wet the edges. The dumpling can be of whichever shape as per your choice. Ensure to properly pinch the edges to secure any holes where leakage may occur.
- In a separate large pan, mix the Vegetable Broth Mix and water and place over medium heat to boil. Add a batch of dumplings (enough to cover the base of the pan), stir once and leave until they rise to the top.
- Cook for at least 5 minutes or until the pork is well cooked. Repeat till all the dumplings are ready.
- Serve the meatballs while still warm with any extra Chipotle Aioli Mix or some of the cooking liquid as a dipping sauce.

The most common filling for Chinese dumplings is the pork and cabbage, but broccoli is equally good. Both the pork and broccoli are all nutritious, and you will enjoy all the health benefits from the dish. Dumpling needs some lubrication; therefore, you may use fatty pork to prevent your dumping from becoming hard and dry.
It is not a good idea for the pork that you are using in this recipe to go into the food processor. It's better to use your hands to get a mixture that is soft enough. Overworking the mix seems to make it tough.
If you want to avoid a mouthful of a chewy stalk in your mouth, you should select your cabbage wisely from the market. Ensure that you chop it finely as well. Celery, scallions, and ginger add a spicy sweetness to the filling.
Boiling your dumplings makes for a more interesting contrast with the flavors of the filling, and the dipping sauces. You may, however, steam or panfry them.
