While visiting family in Portland, Oregon, I got the chance to tackle one of the vegan recipes I've been wanting to try. My aunt Nicole is a huge foodie, so with her cooking expertise, she helped me re-create a childhood favorite, mandu vegan style. These Korean dumplings are traditionally made with beef, but with creativity, the vegan version is just as fantastic!
For the recipe, read on.
- 1 pack of cole slaw (red and green cabbage and carrots), chopped finely
- 1 garlic clove
- Pack of vermicelli
- 1/2 package of firm tofu
- Flour or rice flour
- Wonton wrappers
- Canola oil
- Add 1 garlic clove to cole slaw and saute in canola oil.
- Boil vermicelli.
- Combine cole slaw, vermicelli, and 1/2 firm tofu. Break the tofu up into small pieces.
- Place flour or rice flour down on trays before making the dumplings.
- Use a spoon to scoop out filling and place onto wonton wrapper. Use your finger to dampen the edges of the wrapping with water. This helps seal the wrappers together.
- Place canola oil and begin to pan fry. Once brown on both sides, mandu is ready to be eaten!
