Gluten and Egg free Gyoza (Potstickers)

Today was my Mom's birthday. She is also gluten free. So...that means we can't just "go to the store" and pick up the dumpling wrappers like everyone else, yes...we MUST make it from scratch!  So, with the help of my brother Paul, who flattened the dough balls into flat round wrappers using the Tortilla maker, I made these for our Mom's birthday. :-)
You can see some of the flours that go into the gluten free dough: Sorghum, Millet, Tapioca, Xanthan Gum, Brown Rice flour, etc.  If we could use egg, the gluten free dough would be MUCH more pliable, but our son is allergic to egg as well, so I used Ener-G brand Egg Replacer powder.  Here they are before cooking.
Here's a batch all done and crispy. Next time I'd like to make the skins a tiny bit thinner, to accomplish this, I may need to add another tsp of xanthan gum for pliability
I used homegrown Garlic Chives and some Broccoli stems chopped up in them too! Yummy with a dipping sauce made from gluten free soysauce, homegrown Lemon juice, and toasted sesame oil.

Wow! Impressive! I have made potstickers a few times, but never a homemade dough. Great job! I am sure your mom was pleased with her birthday meal.

Thank you Tracy, yes she was very excited to be able to have this dish, as it's been years since we've made it (due to it's tedious nature).

Thanks for stopping by! :-)
