Try these delicious and vegan pork dumplings
I could probably live off of dumplings. As a child I was the pickiest eater. Whenever we would order from our local Chinese restaurant, I would always get the vegetable dumplings. I still love them to this day.
I wanted to have some fun with these dumplings so I decided to try making a “pork” filling. It turned out amazing! I used tofu as my pork base and they just taste so delicious!
For this recipe I used pre-made dumpling wrappers. The brand I used is Nasoya, but you can use whatever brand you want. If you are interested in making your own dumpling wrappers, please refer to my vegetable dumpling recipe where I have the ingredients listed to make your own.
What do you need for this recipe?
- Tofu – this is what our pork will be.
- Green cabbage – this adds some freshness to the recipe as well as a nice veggie component.
- Dumpling wrappers – I bought pre-made wrappers from Nasoya but click here if you want the recipe to make them yourself.
- Soy sauce
- Sesame oil
- Ground ginger
- Garlic powder
- Green onions
