Maangchi dumplings. These are our new favorite snacks for lunches etc… They can be freezed and then you can cook as many as you would like at a time.

Maangchi made hers with shrimp but I have decided to stuff them with veggies. You can stuff them with whatever you would like!

See Maangchi here:

Time: ~1 hour to prep and 10 minutes to steam

Effort: A lot. It just takes a lot of time to stuff them all

Amount: 50 dumplings

You need:

  • 2 bunches of green onion – chopped small
  • 2 cups mushrooms – chopped small
  • 1 carrot – chopped small
  • 1/2 block of extra firm tofu – drained
  • 1 package (50 count) dumpling wrappers
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 4 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbl potato starch

Do this:

  1. In a large mixing bowl mix your veggies
  2. Squeeze out as much water as possible from the tofu and add it to the bowl
  3. Add the salt, pepper, sesame oil, and potato starch. Mix until fully homogeneous.
  4. Put a wrapper on your palm and put some water on the edge of the wrapper. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of filling to the center of the wrapper and fold it along the edge to seal.
  5. Fold ripples into the edge to hold it together and make a nice looking pouch.
  6. Your dumplings can be placed on a cookie sheet and placed in the freezer. Once frozen you can place them in a bag and use as needed.
  7. When you’re ready to have some you can steam them in your favorite steamer for 10 minutes or until the wrapper becomes translucent.
