I love this recipe. I've been making it for years, ever since I found it in Vegetarian Times (where it was originally printed). It takes a while to fold the dumplings, but the results are more than worth the effort.

- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon ginger, grated and peeled
- 1 tablespoon chili paste
