As I mentioned on my Facebook page I have something new for you! What I made were dumplings! So I love dumplings especially steamed dumplings and I have been wanting to make them for a while.

Last week a good friend of mine as well as my brother and his girlfriend came for dinner. I decided to have an asian tapas night, we made fresh spring rolls with fried rice and raw veggies, and we made dumplings. Since my friend is newly vegetarian I made some vegetarian dumplings but I was also really craving shrimp dumplings so we made both!

For the vegetarian dumplings we made a stir fry with dried mushrooms, Shiitake mushrooms and some fresh Chinese mushrooms. I made these with some spring onion and soy sauce. Then I took my little dumpling wraps and put the stir fried mushrooms in the wrappers and tried to make them look pretty.

Then for the shrimps I chopped them up t make them like minced. I added some sesame oil salt pepper and some truffles. Here I folded the dumplings the same way.

All I did was steam the dumplings for a couple of minutes and serve.

Bon Ap!

Hope you all like it! And if you made dumplings and come up with some great flavours, please share!
