A Nice Dumpling Surprise

This recipe came about one morning when I was raiding my fridge. The basic veggies I had were just what I needed to make this incredible rice paper dumpling recipe that is something different and truly incredible, and gluten-free of all the things, perfect for the gluten-free folks (and not) out there!

I have not made this dumpling recipe before but I clearly know in my mind what I want and that is flavour – and it was definitely what I got! The flavour of the veggies just blended together and made this rice paper dumpling really delicious.

Use The Right Pan To Get That Crisp

Aside from the flavour of the ingredients that made this recipe a success, one of the important factors is the pan you will use in frying the dumpling. Make sure it is non-stick! Watch the vid as I shared a tip on how to season your pan, and the pan I used is an Iron Clad. The result? Perfect brown and crispy dumplings.

The dipping sauce I used is a part of a lot of my recipes over the years and the recipes in my Plant-Based Love Stories as well.
