Kimchi Dumplings (Mandu)

Who doesn’t love some good dumplings? You might be familiar with the Chinese Jiaozi or Japanese Gyoza, but Koreans have an equally delicious treat called Mandu. If you don’t know, Mandu is the Korean version of Chinese Jiaozi or Eastern European pierogi. It’s served during the Korean Lunar New Year festivities in a soup along with some rice cakes, to symbolise good luck for the coming new year.



I was trying to re-create the mandu from a street vendor that I used to go to all the time when I was in Korea. I'm happy to report that this is pretty darn close to the one from my childhood! These vegan kimchi dumplings are special because it has a flavour of Chinese but with some Korean touch - kimchi! Plus the sauce is spicy, juicy, and packed with umami, so good!


And I think there is a common misconception that you need meat in order for dumplings to be tasty, and that is definitely not the case!
