Vegan Dumplings

Vegan Recipes

 

Everyone loves dumplings and they’re easy to make if you have dumpling wrappers. The only caveat is a lot of premade wrappers contain egg. If you prefer you can use gluten free wrappers if you can find them. I finally found vegan dumpling wrappers at a nearby Asian market.  Joy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet of dumpling wrappers (about 40) thawed if frozen
  • 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped ginger
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped jalapeno pepper( or to taste)
  • 1 package tofu (8-12 oz,
  • 1/2 cup loosely chopped cilantro
  • 1 Tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sake, dry sherry or white wine
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce (for dipping sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar (for dipping sauce)

Directions:

  1. Separate dumpling wrappers and place on a non-stick surface. Then cover with a damp towel so they don’t dry out.
  2. Sprinkle 2 Tablespoons of salt over cabbage and let sit for about 15 minutes to get rid of excess water. Then rinse salt off cabbage and squeezed dry in a a clean dish towel or paper towel.IMG_6150
  3. Squeeze moisture from tofu by placing the block in dish towel or paper towel. Squeeze well and crumble at the same time.
  4. To make the filling, place all ingredients, except soy sauce and rice wine vinegar  for dipping sauce, in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  5. Stuff dumplings by holding the wrapper in one hand and placing a tablespoon of filling in the center.IMG_6157
  6. Then wet 1/2 the wrapper’s circumference with a finger dipped in water.
  7. Fold in half to make a semi-circle. Crimp edges shut with the prongs of a fork.
  8. Continue until done.IMG_6181
  9. Place a large pot two-thirds of the way filled with water on the burner to boil. Add 1 teaspoon salt.IMG_6187
  10. When boiling add as many dumpling that can fit in pot. Boil until they rise to the top then boil for 1 minute more.
  11. Remove by strainer and boil the remaining dumplings
  12. Mix dipping sauce in a small bowl.
  13. Serve Immediately while they’re hot.

ENJOY!
