Prep Time: 30 minutes
I was so pleased with how these dumpling wrappers turned out. It's a great example of how you don't need to overcomplicate recipes to get a quality product. This recipe calls for three to four simple ingredients - that's it!
I avoid oil in my diet, so I appreciate how this recipe is oil-free.
You can use these immediately or store them in an air-tight container and refrigerate or freeze them for future use.
I use these wrappers when I make our Vegan Dumplings w/ Mushrooms Recipe (coming soon) - try it out when you're in the mood. Dumplings are a fantastic comfort food.
Perfect Vegan Dumpling & Wonton Wrappers
2.5 cups AP flour, sifted (*plus a little extra for rolling)
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cups water
(*option - brush a little cornstarch on the wrappers to prevent sticking - you can also use flour)
In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour and salt.
Slowly pour in 1/2 cup water.
Mix ingredients with a fork (*you can also use a food processor w/ dough blades).
Continue mixing until the dough is crumbly but can stick together when pinched.
Keep the dough in the bowl and use your hands to kneed the dough. *Add remaining water if the dough is dry. Try adding a little at a time until the right consistency is achieved. The dough should be soft and easily hold together - but not sticky.
Mold the dough into a ball.
Cover the dough with a clean towel or parchment paper. Let it rest for 20 minutes.
Add a small amount of flour to a clean surface.
Cut the dough in half. Take one half of the dough and place on the floured surface.
Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough as thin as possible. This may take awhile. It may be easier to cut the dough in half and roll out smaller portions. *If you have one, you can use a pasta machine to roll the dough.
Use a round cookie cutter (or the lip of a cup) to cut out round wrappers.
Dust each wrapper with a very small amount of flour or cornstarch to prevent sticking.
To get more wrappers out of the dough, roll the scraps of the dough. I was able to do this quite easily and got four extra wrappers.
Store the wrappers in an air tight container and keep cool until you're ready to use them.
