My favorite food is dumplings, this summer I decided to grill dumplings and am obsessed! I hope you will love them as much as I do!


  • 12 Shiitake mushrooms, grilled and chopped
  • 1 Pounds Pea shoots, chopped
  • 8 Ounces Smoked tofu, chopped
  • ¼ Cups Cognac
  • 1 Tablespoon Soy sauce

  • 1 Tablespoon Package dumpling wrappers
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced ginger
  • ⅓ Teaspoons Salt
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    All great dumplings start with a little ginger, so please mince the ginger and garlic, then combine with chopped pea shoots.

    Step 2

    As a lover of all things grilled, I decided to grill the mushrooms while slowly pouring cognac over them.

    Mix the mushrooms, veggies, smoked tofu and condiments. The filling is complete!

    Step 5

    Place 1 tablespoon of filling in the wrapper and pinch together.

    Step 7


    Step 8

    Par cook the dumplings for 8 minutes by steaming then let cool for 10 minutes. This will stop them from sticking on the grill.

    Place on the grill, cover, and let cook for 15 minutes. I used this time to sit with my friends and enjoy a beer 🍺🍺
