Ginger Turkey Pot Stickers

1 Package Ground Turkey
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
½ Head Cabbage  - cut in ¼
1 Onion – Peeled - cut in ¼
1  Large Carrot – Peeled – cut in ¼ (or 1 cup pre shredded carrots)
1 tbsp Fresh Ground Ginger
2 tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 Package Round Won Ton Wrappers
2 Scallions – finely chopped
1 tbsp Sesame Seeds

In a pan over med/high heat add the EVOO and Turkey.  Break the turkey up and brown it about 5 minutes.  Drain off any oil and set turkey aside.

In a food processor add cabbage, onion, carrot and shred to combine.  In a large bowl add the cabbage mixture, the ground turkey, ginger, soy sauce, cayenne pepper and brown sugar.  Mix well.  Taste to adjust seasonings accordingly.

Take the won tons and with a pastry brush or your finger, wet the outer edges with water.  Take about a teaspoon of the ground turkey mixture and place in the center of the won ton.  Fold the won ton in ½ and press the edges to firmly seal.

In a shallow pan bring about 2” of water to a simmer.  Salt like you would pasta.  Gently add in the won tons (in batches) and simmer about 1 minute on each side.

In another pan w/ 1 tbsp EVOO, on med/high heat, add in the won tons and brown on each side (about 1 minute each side).

Garnish with chopped scallions and sesame seeds.  For an added flavor add your favorite Asian dipping sauce.
