Steamed veggie dumplings- a light appetizer that tastes delicious and it super healthy. You need a steamer for this recipe but for those who do not have a steamer and don't want to invest in it- you can make a home made steamer which might not be as effective as a REAL steamer but will do the job. Fill a big pot with 2 glasses of water and place a colander on top. Cover the colander with the lid of the pot and walla the home made steamer is ready!! You can line the surface of the colander with some lettuce or cabbage leaves before steaming the dumpling so that it doesn't stick to the colander —Pallavi Gupta
