Turning frozen potstickers into a complete meal is easy when you add them to a vegetable stir-fry in this healthy dinner recipe. Customize based on what's in your fridge--carrots, broccoli and mushrooms are all great choices. Keep it vegetarian with vegetable potstickers or try shrimp or chicken for some additional protein.

  • Prepare potstickers according to the pan-fry directions on the package. Transfer to a plate.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a 14-inch flat-bottom wok over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Add scallion whites and bell pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until the bell pepper is crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in cabbage, snap peas, ginger and garlic; cook, stirring, just until the peas are bright green and the cabbage starts to wilt, about 1 minute. Stir the sauce and add to the wok along with the potstickers; simmer, gently stirring, for 1 minute. Serve topped with scallion greens.

Tips

Shao Hsing (or Shaoxing) is a seasoned rice wine used in Chinese cooking to flavor sauces, marinades and stir-fries. Look for it in Asian specialty markets or with other Asian ingredients in large supermarkets. In a pinch, dry sherry is a good substitute.

Potstickers: Look for a brand that has 600 mg or less of sodium per serving. Our Favorites: Annie Chun's (chicken & vegetable) and Chef One (vegetable)

This was pretty good. I used a pre-chopped coleslaw mix to save on time and ended up really liking the end texture of the smaller pieces finding it to eat almost like rice. Read More
