Happy Columbus Day!
Woo hoo for people exploring and finding things!
I’m bringing it back, yet again, to a meatless Monday, and this week I am featuring a yummy vegetarian dumpling!
So, I know this recipe is totally coming from out of the blue, but I had been craving them for a HOT minute and I was also curious on how to make thin outside wrapper.
I have been working towards a secret goal (that I can hopefully share soon!) which has enabled me to learn ALL I can about my favorite foods. So yes, dumpling is among them.
I did a little research on this recipe and adapted mine from The Woks Of Life. I loved their easy approach to what seems like a daunting task into an almost seamless process.
They include easy to understand instructions and lots of pictures.
I like pictures.
Though, I have to say, the dumplings turned out much better than I thought they would! I made a few adjustments to the original recipe, here, but felt like I had all the full flavor to really make a vegetable dumpling POP.
The hardest part of the dumpling process was the thin wrapper shells. My dough bites were too big which lead to me rolling out larger circles which gave me a thicker wrapper and much larger portion sizes.
If this happens to you, word of advice, just stop while you are ahead! Take half the amount of dough you think you need and make your wrapper from that.
I am in the testing phases of my dumpling…I wasn’t 100% on them, you know.
Has anybody dumpling from scratch before? Tell me what I did wrong on the wrapper!
