Pumpkin and Shitake Dumplings

2 comments

Shitake mushrooms have antiviral action, anticancer, cholesterol lowering, hypoglycemic, and immunostimulant. They also contain all essential amino acids, and minerals and group B vitamins. Eventually, radioactive shitake mushrooms  (I refer to the nuclear disaster, Japan) will arrive here; in anticipation of that, and being very suspicious, I’m glutting myself on them. They’re typically eaten in soups, but I love dumplings, and I wanted to try them this way …


Ingredients:

for dumplings:
shitake mushrooms
rice sheets, ready made
a piece of boiled pumpkin
e.v.o. oil
salt
pepper to taste
for the sauce:
tamari (or soy sauce)
apple cider vinegar

Method:
Fry the shallot in e.v.o. oil, add the mushrooms, soaked in hot/warm water at least 10 minutes and cut into very thin slices; add pumpkin, salt and pepper (don’t add too much salt, as you’ll season them with tamari).

Meanwhile, place the dried rice sheets in a wet kitchen cloth, separate them well, and wait a few minutes. When they get soft, fill them with a spoonful of pumpkin and sautéed shitake mushrooms, fold them in halves and then create 4 folds on top, giving them the shape of dumplings. If you won’t put enough filling, they won’t stand up on their own (see photo below). Steam cook for 10 minutes, laid on lettuce or cabbage leaves.
To accompany them, prepare a sauce by mixing tamari and apple cider vinegar in equal parts. Enjoy your meal!
