Air-fried, plant-based dumplings

These were an experiment that went right! Filled with veggies, super easy to make and no oil required. You can add any ingredient to the filling, think tofu and noodles, but I kept them very simple in this recipe. If you don't have an air-fryer you can dry fry them in a non stick pan on medium heat until they form a crunchy coating. They are crisp on the outside while being soft inside, everyone will love them!


1 cup cauliflower, finely chopped

1 cup cabbage, shredded

1 cup kale, shredded

1 small onion, finely diced

1 carrot, grated

1 tablespoon corn starch

1 tablespoon tamari

1/2 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder

6 rice paper wrappers

Toasted sesame seeds and spring onions for garnish


Set your air-fryer to around 180 degrees C and allow to preheat. Saute the vegetables until they are soft, add the cornstarch, tamari and five spice powder. Mix well and set aside to cool slightly. Soak the rice paper wrappers, one at a time, and add around 2 large tablespoons of filling to the centre. Fold the edges of the wrapper over so that it makes a neat square shaped parcel. Place the dumpling into a pre-warmed air-fryer and allow to cook for around 10 minutes, or until crunchy on the outside.

Garnish with some toasted sesame seeds and finely sliced spring onion and enjoy with some hoisin sauce.
