- 1 1" piece ginger, grated
- 3 cloves garlic, grated

Charred Scallion Dipping Sauce
- 1 bunch scallions
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp sambal
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- Heat the canola oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 3-4 minutes until fragrant.
- Add the cabbage and cook until soft, 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add the carrots and cook for another minute or two.
- Add the tofu and cook for 3-5 minutes until the pieces start to crisp.
- Add the soy sauce, sriracha, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Stir to coat everything in the sauce and cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove from pan into a bowl.
- Place a tablespoon of filling on each wonton wrapper. Dab a little water around the edge of the wrapper and fold in half around the filling. Press to seal. Repeat with all of the filling.
- Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan over high heat. Add a few dumplings to the hot pan being sure not to crowd them.
- Carefully pour a few tablespoons of water into the hot pan and quickly cover. It's going to splatter a lot.
- Let the dumplings steam until the water is gone, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the pan and repeat the process until all of the dumplings you want to eat are cooked. *See notes
- Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallions, drizzle with a little oil, and sprinkle with a little salt.
- Cook until they are browned. Remove from the pan and cut into 1" sized pieces.
- Combine the res of the ingredients into a bowl. Add the scallions and mash a little with a spoon.
- Serve with the dumplings!
