Steamed Vegetarian Dumplings

Well, I’m a cooking newbie, but I’ll post my past cooking experience. I decided to make some steamed vegetarian dumplings. You can vary them however you want. You can steam or fry them (steamed is healthier obviously) and you can fill them with whatever you want too. Meat, shrimp, spinach and cheese, whatever. I decided to go with some fake sausage.
- fake meatless sausage
- soy sauce
- oyster flavored sauce
- fish sauce
- hoisin sauce
- hot mustard
- won ton wrappers
Then, the easy part, making the filling. In my case it was basically taking that wannabe meat and mixing in the scallions and a bit of all those sauces into something like such (while making a pretty mess). I ended up getting something like so:
First, take a won-ton wrap and put a bit of the filling in the middle. Then, you gotta rub the edges of the wrap with either water or egg white. I used egg white. I also used my finger because that was easiest as so. Basically dip my finger in egg white then rub it along the edges:
Then you fold the wrap in half and press it together, the egg white / water will make it stick. Then you kind of pull the two ends together as so: Note in the previous picture I also have a dumpling where I didn't pull it together (just folded it in half). I did most of them like this because it was 1) quicker and 2) I could put more stuffing in it. If you want to do the full way, you gotta add egg white down the middle where you pull the two ends together so it sticks too.
Anyway, then it's time to steam them. I don't actually have a steamer so I used this for substitution. Gotta place the dumplings along the bottom so that they don't actually touch.
Then you steam it. Now for my super secret sauce. Hot mustard and soy sauce mixed together.
