Alkaline Veggie Gyoza

I absolutely LOVE Asian food! I mean, I love Asian food so much that I braved the high skies on a 26 hour journey to see beautiful Thailand. You can read more about my adventures in Thailand and see photos and videos here.

But before I even went to Asian I enjoyed going to different Asian restaurants to indulge in the flavors. Then I started to experiment with cooking the foods at home. I would go out to the restaurants, take mental notes of the flavors I could identify, the vegetables and meats that I could see, and how they put it all together. I’d then go home and look up different recipes and combine from each what I thought would make the dish taste great.

Now that I’m vegan and cook mostly alkaline meals at home my experience with hacking restaurant meals came in handy. After several tries I’ve finally come up with a dumpling recipe that is worth sharing with you all. I’ve always been a fan of dumplings, really anything made from dough, from Jamaican dumplings to Asian dumplings.

Take a stab at this recipe. Leave me a comment if you’ve tried it or have any questions.
