Vegetable Pan Fried Wontons (Asian)

I got this from a recipe group that I am on. My kids LOVE this recipe. Of course mine don't turn out as nice as yOkO's pictures look. LOL.

NOTE: Organic ingredients are recommended...
3 c cabbage*, finely shredded
1 c carrots*, finely shredded
4 green onions*, minced
4 tbsp cilantro*, chopped
3 gloves garlic*, minced
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
1/2 tbsp soy sauce*
1/2 tbsp sesame oil*
24 wonton wrappers, homemade or store bought
canola oil* for pan frying

1/3 c brown rice vinegar*
1/3 c soy sauce*
1/3 c water
2 tbsp sesame oil*
1 tsp chili oil (or 1/2 tsp red pepper*)
Combine all ingredients and chill over night.
Combine all ingredients.
Heat a wok or flat pan over high heat,
when the wok or flat is hot, add 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil* (or canola oil).
Add all the vegetable ingredients and stir fry until cabbage is slight wilted.
Stir in soy sauce and sesame oil.
Stir in enough cornstarch (or panko) to thicken the sauce
to the consistency of honey.
Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
Place a small spoonful in the center of wonton.
Fold corners to make a triangle, then fold in corners like an envelope.
Coat bottom of nonstick frying pan with canola oil.
Cook over medium high heat until bottoms are golden and crusty.
Pour in 1/8 c water, cover pan and steam for about 2 minutes.
Serve immediately with sauce.
Makes approximately 24
