Steamed Dumplings

This is the kind of thing that I used to think I could never make. They look complicated but they are actually super easy. They are so tasty, I can easily eat a dozen by myself!

makes 24

1/4 of a block of firm tofu
3 scallions
1/2 cup purple cabbage
1/2 cup carrot
2 teaspoons tamari
24 square vegan wonton wrappers

Press the tofu.

Thinly slice the scallions. Slice and dice the cabbage into small bits. Shred the carrot in the processor. Mix together in a bowl. Crumble the tofu and add to the vegetables. Add the tamari and mix well.

Set up your dumpling station.

#1 – Won ton wrappers (place them on a wet paper towel and cover with another wet towel until ready to use)
#2 – Bowl of water
#3 – Tofu mixture
#4 – Assembly plate

Take a wrapper and wet around the edge with your finger. Put a teaspoonful of mixture in the middle. Gather up corners and then twist to form a purse. Place on the assembly plate.

Arrange the purses in a bamboo steamer and steam for 5 minutes.

Dipping Sauce
1/4 cup tamari
2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
1 scallion

Whisk tamari and vinegar together. Thinly slice the scallion and add to the sauce.
