Easy Deconstructed Chinese Dumplings

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 lb ground natural pork you could also use ground turkey or vegan alternative ground "crumbles"
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or ghee, or another oil with high smoke point
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger root
  • 2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil toasted
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1-2 tablespoons chives for garnish, chopped
  • 3-4 zucchinis or wide rice noodles, cooked according to directions


  • 3 tablespoons of tamari or soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon honey


  1. To make the sauce combine the tamari/ soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sriracha and honey in a bowl.
  2. Whisk briskly to combine and set aside.
  3. Heat the avocado oil in a pan over medium high heat.
  4. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for a few minutes until fragrant and just starting to turn golden brown.
  5. Next add the ground pork and stir until it's almost all the way cooked, about 5 minutes.
  6. Turn the heat down to medium-low and add the tamari/soy sauce, sriracha, and sesame oil.
  7. Cook for another 1-2 minutes to combine flavors.
  8. Remove from heat and set aside.
  9. Peel and wash the zucchini. (Or cook rice noodles according to directions)
  10. To make wide zucchini "ribbon noodles" use a veggie peeler on one side of the zucchini repeatedly. The noodles will get wider the closer you get to the middle of the zucchini.
  11. If you wish you can quickly sauté the zucchini noodles over medium heat with a little oil to soften them. They are pretty thin and I find using them raw is fine because the heat from the pork softens them perfectly.
  12. Plate your noodles, then add pork on top.
  13. Garnish with chopped chives, drizzle the sauce on top, and possibly an extra dash of sriracha. Enjoy!
