Dumplings are one of the all time best comfort foods- at least for me anyway. The first time I had dumplings was in a hole in the wall restaurant in china town, Toronto. To this day those were the best dumplings I’ve ever had. Going vegan caused problems in finding proper amazing dumplings at restaurants and so I settled for frozen ones purchased in my local Asian market. It wasn’t until those frozen dumplings got discontinued that I got the idea that I could make my own. So after a day of messing around with different recipes I finally landed on an amazing recipe for homemade vegan dumplings. Keep reading for the recipe.
This recipe is so easy, I was shocked. Making dumplings sounded like a tedious, long task, however it’s actually the opposite. Depending on how many dumplings you want to make cook time for this recipe van vary from 20-40 minutes. What I’ve created here are mushroom dumplings, with tofu, red cabbage and red pepper. You can add whatever you like, and adjust the batch according to how many dumplings you want- it is seriously impossible to mess this recipe up!
This Recipe made roughly 20 Dumplings, so adjust the amount of mixture for how many dumplings you plan on making. You can freeze them for up to 6 months, I would just suggest waiting for them to cool down completely and then placing a layer of wax paper between each stack otherwise they will freeze together and rip when you try to cook them/separate them (I learned this the hard way). I buy my dumpling wrappers from my local Asian market however I have seen them in several of my local grocery stores as well. What I love about this recipe is that the dumplings are very easy to make as a low fat, low calorie but high protein/vitamins, so they are amazing for weightless.
I’ve made this recipe about ten times now, I am completely obsessed with these dumplings even in the constant heat this summer has brought us. Again you can change up what you put into the dumplings, the filling can mimic your favorite dumplings. Let me know in the comments if you try this recipe, or what you put in your dumplings if you already make your own!
