Vegan Shiitake Mushroom Dumplings

These Vegan Shiitake Mushroom Dumplings are easy to make and are the perfect side or main dish for your family or holiday dinner. Made with homemade red beet wrappers, these dumplings are festive and a great way to celebrate the holidays with. They are paired with a simple Sesame Chili Sauce.

Although my mom loves to cook, there are days when she has absolutely no idea of what to make for our family for lunch or dinner. More often than not, she would sigh as she sits down on our worn-leather sofa, asking out loud what she should make tomorrow despite us almost always having leftovers in the fridge.

My childhood self always craved dumplings. They are not hard to make, but can be a little bit time consuming for my mom, who often had to run errands or drop my siblings off to school, any after school activities we had, and picking us up afterwards. So, whenever she would make them, she would reserve the entire Saturday morning and early afternoon to make dumplings. She does large batches because there are five of us together in our family and none of us are satisfied after one plate only.

She would make the fillings the night before and the next morning, she would lay everything out on our dining table, a pile of containers on one side of our table to store the dumplings and start making them. You would often find me at one side of the table too, helping out, but by the time I finished with one, she would have most likely have done 4 or 5 already.

I know this holiday season will be different for many, but if you want a fun savory recipe to make together, these Vegan Shiitake Mushroom Dumplings are for you. I made a small of them with homemade wrappers, but you can easily double the recipe for the wrappers. Alternatively, you can also use store-bought wrappers. Make sure they are vegan though. I colored mine with vegan natural food coloring to make them festive, but you can also swap the colors or leave them as is. To speed up the process, you can make the filling and sauce the night before. That way, the next day, you can focus on making the wrappers and dumplings themselves. I hope you will have fun making them!
