Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Peel and mince the ginger. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Trim off and discard the stem ends of the green beans. Cut off and discard the mushroom stems; thinly slice the caps. Mince the garlic.

Roast the green beans
On a lined sheet pan, toss the green beans and garlic with a drizzle of oil; season with S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast in the oven, stirring once, 8 to 10 minutes, until tender. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with ½ the sesame seeds and ½ the green tops of the scallions.

Make the filling
In a large nonstick pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the ginger and white bottoms of the scallions. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the mushrooms, cabbage and ½ the soy sauce; season with S&P. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes until the vegetables have softened. Transfer to a bowl, wipe out and reserve the pan.

Make the sauce
While the filling cooks, in a small pot, combine the peanut butter, honey, sesame oil, remaining soy sauce, as much of the chili flakes as you’d like and ¼ cup of water (double for 4 portions). Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, until thoroughly combined and slightly thickened; season with S&P to taste.

Assemble the dumplings
Fill a small bowl with lukewarm water. Place 5 dumpling wrappers at a time on a clean, dry work surface. Spoon about 1 tsp of the filling into the centre of each wrapper. Working one at a time, use your fingers to lightly moisten the edges of the wrappers with water. Pull the edges of the wrapper up around the filling, twisting them at the top to create a little purse.

Cook the dumplings & serve
In the same pan, heat a light drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the dumplings (in batches, if necessary) in a single, even layer and cook, 2 to 3 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown. Add ¼ cup of water and cover the pan. Let cook, 3 to 5 minutes, until the dumplings are cooked through. Divide the finished dumplings and sesame green beans between your plates. Serve with the peanut dipping sauce on the side and garnish with the remaining sesame seeds and remaining green tops of the scallions. Bon appétit!
