Dumplings – also known as potstickers or “jiaozi” in Mandarin – are delicious wheat wrappers stuffed with vegetables and typically some pork or shrimp. My Vegetable Tofu Chinese Dumplings are the tastiest pot stickers you’ll ever try. They also happen to be vegan! They include tofu so you get a healthy dose of plant-based protein. Served with a savory dipping sauce, I dare you not to eat them all in one sitting! Chinese dumplings are very similar to Japanese gyoza. As history tells it, the Japanese borrowed the dumpling idea and adapted it slightly. The main difference is gyoza are smaller than dumplings.
