Cooking Lab - Vegetarian Delight Dumplings

These veggie dumplings aren't just all vegetables. They contained a mixed of enoki and shiitaki mushrooms; garlic chives and healthy buckwheat soba noodles. 

They are vegan-friendly and it takes only five to six minutes to achieve that golden pan-fry perfection.
