Recipe: Vegan Steamed Bao

Vegetarian and vegan recipes with herbs
November 24, 2009

I don't know why, but I really love to steam cook food. Maybe is the look of the cooking food in the steamer lid, or the gentle murmuring of the steam, or maybe is knowing that steamed food is healthy and tasty.

I wanted to try chinese bao, steamed ravioli of yeasted dough.

Vegan Bao


Bao are usually stuffed with stir-fried vegetables and pork minced meat.

Vegan BaoI veganized the recipe using peanuts instead of meat.

100ml water
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp dry yeast
1 tbsp peanut oil
1 leek
1 carrot
100g soya sprounts
2 tbsp peanuts
soya sauce

Directions
Mix the yeast with sugar and dissolve in lukewarm water. Mix the flour with the yeast mixture and peanut oil, knead, and set aside while you prepare the stuffing.
Cut the leek and the carrot into thin slices and stir-fry in the wok with peanut oil. After 10 minutes add the soya sprouts and cook for a couple of minutes.
Season with two spoonful of soya sauce and let cool.

Vegan BaoMeanwhile divide the dough into six parts, and roll them out into circle shapes 12-15 cm in diameter
Stuff with the stir-fried vegetables and peanuts, then close them pressing the edges together.


Vegan BaoOil the steamer lid and put the bao in it 2 cm apart to allow for expansion during cooking. Put the lid on the pot with boiling water and cover.
Cook 30 minutes and serve hot, with soya sauce.

They were delicious, I eat them asking to my partner: is it okay if I will cook them again and again and again?
