Vegan Scallion Tofu Sesame Dumplings

These are easy dumplings to make and super tasty, for meat eaters you can use minced chicken or pork but I made them vegan. Here’s how I do it:


Dumpling/wonton wrappers I found great vegan ones square shaped

1 block tofu or protein of choice

3 cloves garlic chopped fine

3-4 chopped scallions

3 tablespoons sesame oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 tablespoon agave nectar

2 tsp sesame seeds I used black but white are fine

For Dipping Sauce

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tsp hot chili oil

1 tsp rice vinegar

1 tsp agave nectar

1 tablespoon water

Chop the tofu or protein of choice very fine, add the sesame oil to a hot pan, add the garlic and tofu and simmer till firm then add the soy sauce, vinegar, agave and simmer till liquid is absorbed then add scallions and 1 tsp sesame seeds simmer another 2 mins set aside to cool.

Fill each square with about 1 heaping tsp of filling brush the inside edges with water or egg whites and fold into a simple Diamond shape seal edges you can take 2 corners and connect them for another shape seal with water or egg white. Steam the dumplings for 6-7 mins in a steamer then I like to pan fry them back in the same skillet till they are browned. Combine all the ingredients for the dipping sauce in a small bowl, serve dumplings hot with additional scallion and sesame seeds scattered all over.
