Pan Fried Vegetable Buns

If you’re looking for a vegan dish this is the one to make. It is plant based with shiittake, bok Choy and carrots. The dough is very easy to make with 2 minutes knead only technique. When making these, it brought back memories from when I watched the Pixar Short Bao with the mom and the dumpling. It’s the cutest short film ever. If you never seen it you should check it out along with a steamed dumpling recipe

While this is a vegan buns recipe, you can stuff the dumplings however you would like. If you wanted to add meat you can always add cooked pork to it as well along with a variety of vegetables. However you make, they will be delicious. Enjoy!

How to Make Pan Fried Vegetable Buns

Prepare your dough. In a large mixing bowl, add flour, salt and create a well in the center of the flour. Pour hot water and oil. Mix with a wooden spoon until the water is a bit cold then with your hands. Knead for about 2 minutes. If sticky add more oil. Cover and leave on the side while preparing the fillings.

Prepare fillings. Heat a pan with 2 tablespoons oil and medium heat. Fry onion, garlic and carrots until tender then add shittake and bok choy stems (save the bok choy leaves for later), add salt and pepper. Let cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool down.

Flour your working place. Divide dough into 5 balls. Roll each ball flat in a round shape with a rolling pin. It must be 0.5 inch thick. Add filling in the center then fold the bun up and around the filling making sure to seal the top by pinching with your fingers. Repeat until all buns are assembled.
