dumpling class

I finally took the dumpling folding class I wrote about last month and got so caught up in the process, that I forgot to take step-by-step pictures. Go figure.

I’m not going to try and explain folding without good images, so check out Diana Kwon’s website (who taught the class I took) and take a look at her wonton folding and dumpling folding techniques. SUPER easy after a little practice. Next time I make dumplings on my own, I will take step by step pictures and post.

I also adapted her vegetarian dumpling recipe from class last week and it was delicious! Recipe below.

Mix together the following ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 inch cube fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 lemon’s fresh juice
  • 1 bag baby spinach, steamed
  • 2 handfuls diced re-hydrated shiitake mushrooms (soak dried mushrooms in warm water until tender, approx 20 minutes, squeeze out excess moisture before dicing)– the dried mushrooms have more flavor that raw
  • 3-4 green onions, finely chopped
