Instructions

1. Pour 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil into the Cuisinart® GreenGourmet® Electric 14-inch Skillet set to 350°F. Once the oil is hot and shimmering, add the shallots, carrot, celery, and green onion and sauté for about 3 minutes, until vegetables soften slightly. Add the water chestnuts, garlic, mushrooms, and bell pepper and continue to cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and rice vinegar and cook for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool before assembling wontons. 2. Set up your work station in a large space equipped 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 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 2 end points, and pinch to seal, using more water to help if needed. Continue to fill the remaining wontons. Keep the prepared wontons on a clean tray or cutting board and cover with plastic. 3. Preheat the Cuisinart® GreenGourmet® Electric 14-inch Skillet to 300°F and add 1 teaspoon oil; swirl to coat cooking surface of Skillet. Place half the batch of wontons (about 15) in a single layer in the Skillet. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes or until sides are browned. Flip and brown other sides, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and reserve. Repeat with the remaining wontons. 4. Add reserved wontons to the skillet. Pour water into Skillet; cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to 200°F. Cook 12 to 16 minutes, until most of the water has evaporated, and wonton dough is tender. 5. Serve with Ginger Dipping Sauce.
