After School Snack: Carrot-Squash Potstickers

This week we brought a little Asian-flare into our Freshmade kitchen. The kids made homemade, healthy Carrot-Squash Potstickers that were served with a simple Citrus-Tamari Dressing.

You don’t have to limit yourself to just carrots and squash in the potstickers. Other great ingredients to fill these with are mushrooms, ginger, cabbage, bell peppers, fresh herbs like parsley and cilantro, sweet potato and even apples!

  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 1 small butternut squash (or other), peeled and cubed
  • 3-4 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • Olive oil to coat pan
  • Sea salt & fresh pepper, to taste

Citrus-Tamari Dressing

  • 1/4 cup (4 oz) tamari (we love the low sodium, gluten free option from Eden Organic)
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 scallions, finely diced


  1. Saute carrots, squash and onion in a little olive oil over medium heat until tender.  Add to a bowl and mash.  Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  2. Place wonton wrapper on a flat surface, add a small amount of the carrot-squash mixture to the wrapper.
  3. Lightly outline the edges using your finger with a little water.  Fold into a triangle.  Set aside on a baking sheet, cover with a wet paper towel to keep them moist.
  4. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers and filling.
  5. Lightly coat a pan with olive oil.  Cook potstickers in batches, until golden brown on both sides.
  6. For the dressing: Whisk all dressing ingredients together, and serve alongside potstickers.
