the other day i asked what cheese would go well with pumpkin to make dumplings. What is the best way to cook it? I'm using dumpling wrappers.
What are looking for your end product to be? If you want traditional dumplings, you can use the potsticker method: saute in a bit of oil until one side is nicely browned, and then add a few tablespoons of water, cover, and let them steam the rest of the way. Or, try a steamer basket if you'd like to steam them the whole way!
i'm afraid that the wrapper would stick if i steam them. Has that happened to you before?
Yum! I would either pan-fry them in a little oil, potsticker-style, or boil them gently in broth.
Probably vegetable broth if you're going to use a broth.
yes, vegetable or chicken broth. You can serve the dumplings in a soup, like wonton soup. Don't dump the broth - use it.
To prevent sticking, you can line your steamer basket with a sturdy vegetable leaf, such as bok choy.
Or green cabbage leaves!
Or swiss chard leaves! (Is it lunchtime yet? I'm hungry for dumplings.)
I make a soup of pumpkin ricotta dumplings simmered in broth (chicken) with some added tomato puree, basil, and then added spinach and a spinkle of parmesan. It delicious. And now I want some.
