Shumai is a dumpling popular in Chinese & East Asian cuisine and originating from Hohhot in Inner Mongolia. It’s a delicious snack or appetizer with endless ways to fill it – it just requires a steaming tray and ready-made, palm-sized wonton wrappers. Our vegan version is made with sticky rice, tofu, mushrooms, carrots, and is flavored with fragrant ginger and scallion. They’re perfect when dipped in a bit of soy sauce with ginger. Easy, delicious, and as fun to make as they are to eat!
Just be sure to get this started in advance; the rice needs some soaking that will make the cooking process faster when you’re closer to the finish line.
