Pork Dumplings, Veggie Dumplings, & Dipping Sauces

(I believe these are all from Rachael Ray.)

Pork Dumplings

1 lb ground pork

1 scallion, white & green parts only, finely chopped

1/4 cup chopped chives

2 Tbls soy sauce

2 tsp rice vinegar

1 tsp chopped fresh ginger

s & p

50 wonton wrappers

1. In a large bowl, combine the pork, scallion, chives, soy sauce, vinegar, & garlic. Season with s & p.

2. Brush 1 wonton wrapper with water & place 1 heaping tsp of filling in the center. Fold the wrapper into a triangle, squeeze out the air and press the edges together to seal, wetting dough if necessary to make it stick.  Pinch together the 2 corners of the folded edge.  Repeat with the rest.

3. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Working in batches, add the dumplings & boil until cooked through, about 3 minutes after the water returns to a boil. Remove with a slotted spoon & drain. Serve with dipping sauces.  (See below for recipes.)
