I have an unnatural love for Asian flavours. Deep in my soul there is a little dish of soy sauce, with a side of grated ginger and a pile of chewy peanutty noodles. So when we decided to go all in on this plant based lifestyle, I said a tearful farewell to cheap, fast, delicious (pork) dumplings. It was, as it turns out, all for not because incredibly satisfying and delectable dumplings can be made AT HOME, and with MUSHROOMS! No meat necessary!
I followed the recipe put out on the internet by Mary’s Test Kitchen:
It was simple and used ingredients that we already had hanging out in our fridge. I’m not going to lie, this was not a whip it up in an hour kind of dish. But there was something deeply satisfying about wrapping the dumplings up, meditative almost, and the time flew by quickly.
So here we go!
