I’ve recently acquired some kale, which is a real victory in my town, so when I got ill this week I was bummed out that I couldn’t use it. After a few days in bed I finally worked up the strength to make some real food and since I had dumpling wrappers, kale and smoked tofu I decided to attempt dumplings for the very first time. Mine are steamed but feel free to fry them if you want to. Either way, served with a little sweet soy sauce these babies are the bomb as either a light meal or party treat!
- 36 gow gee dumpling wrappers
- 1 teaspoon grated ginger
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1/2 brown onion, finely chopped
- 1 bunch kale, finely chopped
- 1 block smoked tofu, cut into tiny cubes
- 1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
- Heat some oil in a wok before adding the garlic, ginger, onion, kale and smoked tofu.
- As the kale begins to shrink, add the sweet soy sauce and distribute evenly.
- Once the kale is just about cooked, remove from the heat and set aside.
- Wet the edges of each dumpling wrapper with water before adding a tablespoon of mixture to the middle of the wrapper.
- Fold the wrapper over so the edges meet and pinch gently before making little pleats to seal the dumplings.
- Steam for 3-5 minutes or until the wrapper becomes translucent.
- Serve with sweet soy sauce.
