Dumplings are a staple in our house, but they do take a good amount of time to prepare and cook. Instead we have been turning to our Dumpling Bowl. All of the goodness you expect in a dumpling without all the prep work. Which leaves a lot more time for enjoying this dish! This dish has all the flavors of a dumpling as well as the dipping sauce combined into one. We garnish this with some fried wonton wrappers to gain a crunch. Check out the recipe below and turn your dumpling night into a Dumpling Bowl night.
Honestly, this hearty dish tastes even better the next day. It reminds me of lasagna when you reheat it the next day. All of the flavors have been sitting together overnight and reheats at the same time. The favors really seep into the cabbage and become so delicious. Make sure to store the leftovers without the wanton shells or tortilla strips. They will become soggy and not provide you with the crunch you want! So be sure to add the wanton shells or tortilla strips to the each individual dish so they keep their texture and crunch.
