I know, I know. The Best Damn Vegan Dumplings? That’s a bold statement. But please believe me when I tell you these ARE the Best Damn Vegan Dumplings I have ever had. EVER.
In the past, I haven’t had much luck with Asian-style food. Ingredients like soy sauce and sesame oil aren’t things I normally cook with so this type of food never came naturally to me. My Asian dishes would taste good, but not AMAZING. Like they were missing the magic. Well let me tell you, there must have been some magic in my kitchen when I created these because they are incredible! Maybe it’s the addition of purple cauliflower? (My favorite food, it’s just soooo pretty.) All I know is that these are by far the Best Damn Vegan Dumplings I’ve ever tasted and I LOVE vegan dumplings.
The easy peanut sauce takes the flavor over the edge! It’s the perfect combination of sweet, savory, and salty. The peanut sauce is a wonderful complement to the Best Damn Vegan Dumplings. It’s just a bit creamy and takes literally 2 minutes to prepare.
We had help folding our Vegan Dumplings from our friend, Gareth! He’s a long time vegan (20 years) and is in town visiting us from Hawaii. He was such a help in the kitchen. Thanks Gareth! He also takes really stunning photos (check out his Instagram here)!
These Vegan Dumplings are easy to prepare! We could only find eggless dumpling wrapper in a square, so we cut them using the rim of a glass. We pan fried our Vegan Dumplings in the tiniest bit of oil since we don’t have a steamer.
If you choose to steam your Vegan Dumplings, bring 1/4 to 1/2-inch of water to a simmer over medium heat. Spray the steamer’s surface lightly with the non-stick vegetable spray to prevent sticking. Place as many dumplings as you can fit in your steamer without them touching so they don’t stick together. Cover and steam for 10 to 12 minutes over medium heat.
