I'm having people over this weekend for a chinese dumpling making workshop...I have made pork/leek/scallion dumplings several times now and I think I've mastered the filling for it....but I have some vegetarian friends coming and I'd like to make a great vegetable dumpling filling. I've read all sorts of recipes and am wondering if anyone has any good ones that have worked well. I really like leek dumplings, so I'd prefer a recipe that edges toward leeks, less toward cabbage. But anything's possible. What about adding bean thread or tofu? Also might be important to say here that I currently don't own a food processor or blender. Hmmm.
I am planning to use store-bought wrappers (although we might make some dough too) and then to boil the dumplings (or freeze them to boil in the future). So they are not potstickers. They'll be boiled, then perhaps fried afterwards if we don't eat them all first.
No matter what, I'll report back this weekend to say how it went! Thanks a lot
