                         Dumplings:
                         your favorite sauteing liquid -- *
    2      cloves        garlic -- minced
    1      tablespoon    fresh ginger root -- grated
    1      tablespoon    chili paste
    3                    green onions -- sliced
    1      large         zucchini -- diced (about 4 cups)
    1                    red bell pepper -- diced (about 1 cup)
    1      tablespoon    fresh lime juice
      1/2  cup           fresh cilantro -- chopped
    1      pound         won-ton wrappers
                         Dipping Sauce:
      1/4  cup           tamari soy sauce
    2      tbs           rice vinegar
    1      tablespoon    sesame oil
      1/2  teaspoon      chili paste
    1      teaspoon      green onions -- minced
 
 * Original called for 2 tbsp.  vegetable oil. I very rarely use any oil at to
 saute. Without oil, the CFF is 10%. If you use the oil, the CFF is still
 acceptable at 22%.

 Saute the garlic, ginger, and chile paste for 1 minutes. Add the onions and
 cook for 1 minute. Add zucchini and bell pepper and cook until the veggies are
 tender, 3-4 minutes. Add lime juice and cilantro. Remove heat and allow to
 cool. Coarsely chopin a food processor.
 Place 1 tablespoon of filling in center of each won-ton wraper. Brush the
 corners with a little water, then gather the sides together and pinch to make a
 pouch.
 
 Steam the dumplings in a lightly oiled steamer until tender, about 15 minutes.
 Serve immediately with the dipping sauce.
 
 
 Dipping Sauce:
