Vegie Dumplings!

I usually have a box of frozen Coles Vegetable Dumplings on hand in the freezer - they are quick and easy to get ready after I get home from training on the days I train in the evening. Quick dinner is good dinner!! Anyway, I decided it would probably be just as easy to make up a batch of my own!

To make the filling, I was lazy, and whizzed up various vegies in the food processor, as well as some firm tofu. in the interest of extra laziness, I threw in half a bag of pre-grated vegies from Woolies.  I then fried the chopped up vegie and tofu mix with a little oil, and added some soy sauce, garlic, ginger and chilli .  I then left the mix to cool down.  Next step was to fold up the dumplings. Of course, I used wrappers I bought from the supermarket! I put a little filling in the centre of each one, lightly wet the edges with a little water, and then tried to fold them up neatly.  I don't think I did a bad job actually!


The dumplings were then pan fried in batched until golden, then thrown back into the pan with about half a cup of water and a lid on to steam for a couple of minutes.  We then ate way too many, which defeated my intended  purpose of having leftovers to keep in the freezer!  Will have to make MORE next time!!
