Steamed Turkey Wontons

These wontons are super easy to make and are also low in calories and fat.  They can be great as appetizers or they can be combined with fried rice to make a meal!

1/2 lb. lean ground turkey
1 egg
2 TBS soy sauce
1 tsp grated fresh ginger root
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 TBS plain dry bread crumbs
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
16 wonton wrappers

1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 TBS soy sauce
1 tsp freshly grated ginger root
1 tsp sesame oil
1 garlic clove, pressed

For the wontons, combine turkey, egg, soy sauce, bread crumbs, garlic, ginger root and cayenne pepper in a bowl.  Using a small scoop, place a scoop of turkey mixture on the wonton wrapper.  Lightly brush the edges of the wonton with water.  Fold the wonton over and seal. Place in a steamer and cook covered for 5-7 minutes.  

For the sauce, combine all the ingredients and mix well.  When wontons are done serve immediately with dipping sauce.
