Sweet & Sour Veggie Dumplings

These dumplings are a wonderful vegan main course that eats similarly to classic sweet and sour meatballs. Serve them with a heaping pile of steamed veggies and brown rice for a well-rounded and scrumptious meal.

Ingredients

  • Dumplings:

    • 36 oz. firm tofu, mashed
    • 2 Tbsp. peanut butter
    • 2 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
    • 8 scallions, chopped
    • 1 bell pepper, diced
    • 1½ cups mushrooms, chopped
    • ¼ cup water chestnuts, diced

    Sauce:

    • 1½ cups orange juice
    • ¼ cup cider vinegar
    • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
    • 2 Tbsp. cold water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. In large bowl, mix all dumpling ingredients. Shape into 2 dozen 2″ balls and place on oiled or cooking sprayed baking sheet. Bake until golden and firm (45-50 minutes).
  3. When dumplings are 10-15 minutes from being finished, combine all the sauce ingredients except cornstarch and cold water in a saucepan. Bring to boil.
