This is GREAT!!! It is great comfort food and not as doughy as traditional dumplings. I like dumplings, but they tend to be waaayyyy too thick. These dumplings were unique and delicious. I also followed the submitter’s suggestion and added avocado to mine…mmmm! Thanks for a keeper that will be in very short rotation in my house!
