Prep Time: 40-60 minutes | Cook Time: 5-7 Minutes | Serves: 4 servings
For the dumpling dough:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon Earths Basket Wheatgrass powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup warm water
For the filling:
1 cup finely chopped vegetables (such as cabbage, carrots, mushrooms, and scallions)
1/2 cup firm tofu, crumbled
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon soy sauce (or tamari for a gluten-free option)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Salt and pepper to taste
For dipping sauce:
2 tablespoons soy sauce (or tamari)
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional)
Sesame seeds for garnish
In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, Wheatgrass powder, and salt for the dumpling dough. Mix well.
Slowly add warm water to the flour mixture while stirring with a fork or a wooden spoon. Mix until a dough forms.
Transfer the dough onto a clean, floured surface and knead it for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
While the dough is resting, prepare the filling. In a separate bowl, mix together the chopped vegetables, crumbled tofu, minced garlic, grated ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine.
After the dough has rested, roll it out into a thin sheet on a floured surface. Using a round cookie cutter or a glass, cut out circles from the dough.
Place a spoonful of the vegetable filling in the center of each dough circle. Fold the dough in half, sealing the edges together by pinching or crimping.
Repeat the process until all the dough circles are filled and folded.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Carefully drop the dumplings into the boiling water and cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until they float to the surface and the dough is cooked through.
While the dumplings are cooking, prepare the dipping sauce by combining soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and honey or maple syrup (if using) in a small bowl. Stir well to combine.
Once the dumplings are cooked, remove them from the pot using a slotted spoon and transfer them to a serving plate. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the dumplings for garnish.
Serve the Wheatgrass Dumplings hot with the dipping sauce on the side.
