  • Servings 5


  • 2 sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1/4 block tofu, crumbled
  • 6 Napa cabbage leaves, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pkg. vegan dumpling wraps
  • 4 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 5 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. water

  1. Boil the sweet potatoes in water for 8 minutes, or until tender. Mash and combine with the tofu, cabbage, garlic, 3 tablespoonsful of the sesame oil, and the soy sauce.
  2. Assemble by placing 1 tablespoonful of the mixture onto each dumpling wrap and folding over. Use a tiny bit of water to seal the edges. If desired, fold in half and bring each end together, creating a rose-shaped dumpling.
  3. Fry in the remaining sesame oil. When browned, add the water to the pan, cover, and steam for 2 minutes to cook thoroughly.
  4. Top with the sesame seeds.
