I just love eating really good dumplings.  Why don’t you try these “Vegetarian Dumplings” from the Vegetarian Times (it’s the world’s largest source for vegetarian recipes).  These dumplings have simple ingredients but are really very good.  All you do is mix all the vegetables into a food processor until finely chopped, then mix the spices, add the egg and then put the mixture into the wrappers.  There you go, easy as pie—er – dumplings. And would you believe these are actually somewhat healthy too?

Here’s what you need to make Vegetarian Dumplings:


  • 2 large carrots, cut into chunks
  • 8 oz. firm tofu
  • 7 dried black Chinese mushrooms, soaked in hot water to rehydrate
  • ½ lb. spinach, rinsed and trimmed
  • 6 large leaves Chinese or American cabbage, trimmed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ bunch cilantro, rinsed and trimmed
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
  • 2 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tbs. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbs. hoisin sauce
  • 1 Tbs. sesame oil
  • 1 to 3 tsp. salt, or to taste
  • 50 3-inch-round wonton wrappers

Dipping Sauce

  • 3 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs. rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbs. sesame oil
  • ½ Tbs. chili sauce

And believe it or not, these are actually good for you! Nothing better than eating a healthy meal that also TASTES good too! Go on over to Vegetarian Times to find out more! Enjoy!
