1. Lightly coat the steaming rack with nonstick cooking spray. Reserve.

2. Put 1 quart of water into the cooking pot of the Multicooker.

3. Put all ingredients except the wonton wrappers into a large bowl. Gently toss with hands to fully combine, making sure not to over-mix or the filling will be too tough.

4. Set up your work station with a small bowl of water and a pastry brush, large plate or cutting board, package of wonton wrappers, and wonton filling. On a clean surface, line up 3 to 6 wonton wrappers at a time. Place about ½ tablespoon of filling in the middle of each wrapper. Brush the edges of the wrappers with a small amount of water and fold bottom point up, making a triangle. Either crimp all edges like a pleat or fold up the two end points and pinch to seal, using more water if needed. Continue to fill the remaining wontons. Keep the prepared wontons on a clean tray or cutting board and cover with plastic so as not to dry out. Transfer all filled dumplings to the steaming rack and place rack in the unit; cover.

5. Set the unit to Steam. Let steam for about 15 minutes.

6. These are delicious served with soy sauce.
