Vegetarian dumpling

I stay a very close an organic food store. I always go there to buy honey. Every time I went, I could smell the very nice aroma of dumplings. When I checked with the lady store owner, she said that she made those dumplings for vegan in the whole Malaysia. She is the main distributor of vegetarian dumplings. To my surprised, it smells like those normal dumplings. So, I bought a few from her that day. Before I left, she also told me that the dumplings can be taken by cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure patients, as it doesn't contain glutinous rice, it contains only grains, nuts and cereals.
Being a fitness freak, I like what she told me about the vegetarian dumpling. I know I can take it without worrying about gaining weight.

When I asked my husband to try, he took a bite and said "No, thanks". Nevermind, as long as it is healthy and it is not fattening, I will like it. It costs only RM3 for one big dumpling.

  7. Looks interesting .Have never tried this type yet. The closest I guess are those with lots of beans inside. But I dont quite like them. I loved those make by my Mom, Hainanese style which looks like nasi lemak packing. Yummy. Unfortunately she has not been well and so have not being able to make take those. And besides the special leaves are no longer available.

  12. Hayley, Amelia and Kidothings, the dumpling taste good. My kids love eating it with some soy source. May be they find it not salty enough.

  16. I've bought this before (from a shop near my house) and I wonder if it came from this lady too. I'm a semi-vegetarian and I like all things healthy and meatless :)
