Dumpling mixture

  • 1 large shredded carrot
  • 8 minced mushrooms (oyster, button or shiitake mushrooms)
  • 1⁄4 cup minced green cabbage
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1⁄2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1⁄4 tsp white pepper (add more to your liking)
  • chili flakes
  • sesame seeds
  • wonton wrappers (make sure they are vegan!)
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • 3-4 tablespoons Califia Go Coconuts Coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup sriracha (less if you want less spicy!)
  • 3/4-1 cup of vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce


Start to make your dumpling mixture by shredded your carrots, garlic + ginger. Mince your mushrooms + mix in a bowl with sesame oil, soy sauce olive oil, white pepper, chili flakes, sesame seeds + salt & pepper to taste.

Make your dumplings by forming them in your favorite shape (you can do a triangle shape by just folding over or pleating the dumplings. You can do this by stuffing the dumpling, taking both sides together and slowly pleating the sides, folding over with both fingers to create each pleat).

Once all your dumplings are formed, toast the bottoms of the dumplings in a pan with a drizzle of olive oil. In the meantime, make your broth by mixing your coconut milk, sriracha, vegetable broth, red chili flakes, sesame seeds, sesame oil + soy sauce in a saucepan until all the flavors are absorbed and it becomes a creamy broth.

Plate your dumplings + spoon over the broth, top with sesame seeds + green onions, serve + enjoy!
