How to Prepare

This recipe is easy to prepare. Simply toss all ingredients into a deep pan, or ideally, a Chinese wok. Cook on high-flame and keep stirring the sauce constantly to prevent burning and bring out the traditional flavor.

  • First, shallow fry or deep fry the vegan dumplings according to your preference. Set aside.
  • Now place a tablespoon of olive oil in the pan and add the ginger. Immediately add chopped celery (reserve some for garnish). Stir until a strong aroma is released.
  • Now add in the green chili, baby corn, red and yellow bell peppers and stir for 1.5 minutes.
  • Add the vinegar and stir. It should smell amazing right now.
  • Now add the tomato ketchup and soy sauce, stir well.
  • Add the brown sugar and keep stirring the sauce for 30 seconds.
  • Finally, add the fried dumplings into the sauce.
  • Toss the product until the dumplings are well coated with sauce. Let sit for 1 minute. Serve hot.

The best part – the vegan dumplings are soft on the inside and crispy on the outside! The crispiness, paired with the slurry of the coated sauce, is the perfect balance of sweet & sour and an explosion of taste and flavors. You won’t be able to resist gobbling them up!
