Vegetable Dumplings

Thursday, April 16, 2015

This recipe is a little time consuming but easy enough for kids to make. Who says vegans don't eat delicious foods, these dumplings are really yummy and so flavorful. They go great with fried rice, stir-fries, salads, or even in soups.  


3 cups of shiitake mushrooms, chopped 
3 cups of green cabbage, chopped
2 cups of shredded carrots
5 Tbsp of chopped garlic
3 Tbsp of minced ginger
5 green onions chopped
1 cup of bean sprouts, chopped
1 package of vegan wonton wrappers
2 Tbsp of sesame oil
3 Tbsp of low sodium Tamari sauce  
2 Tbsp of rice wine vinegar 


Chop all of your vegetables and combine them in a large bowl. To the vegetable mix add the Tamari sauce, rice wine vinegar, garlic, and ginger mixing well. In a large saute pan add one tablespoon of the sesame oil turn the pan to medium high. Add all of the vegetable mixture to the pan and stir just until the mixture starts to wilt then take off the heat. Next lay out ten sheets of wonton wrappers and fill with a little more than one teaspoon of the vegetable mixture in the center of the wrapper. If you over fill them they will break. 

Dip your finger in water and wet the edges of the wrapper, this is so the sides will stick together. Fold the wrapper into a triangle pinching the edges together, then take the two long edges of the triangle and bring them together dab with water so they stick together. 

I cook my dumplings 10 at a time, again I add a little sesame oil to the pan at a medium heat so they do not burn. Gently add your dumplings to the oiled pan and let them brown on both sides. Then carefully add a couple of tablespoons of water to the pan. Be extra careful the oil will pop up. Place a lid on the pan and let the dumplings steam for a couple of minutes. With tongs gently take the dumplings out of the pan and place on a cutting board to cool. Repeat the process until you have used all of the wrappers. This recipes will make a bunch of dumplings but they will go fast!

Enjoy and remember to always be mindful and eat with compassion!
