To be fair these are actually butternut squash dumplings, but where is the fun in that. Read: deliciously savory oat-based gooey pumpkin pods, served with an herby sauce. Vegan, and free of rice + corn + wheat. Best served wiiiiiittthhhhhh friendship.
WARNING: Duration of cook time increases exponentially in relation to the number of coffee breaks you take…
- 2 cups oat flour
- 1tsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp vegan butter
- 1 cup oat milk
- 1/2 of a Butternut ”Splash”
- Handful of crumbled feta
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 medium onion
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp marjoram
- 1/4 tsp thyme
- 1tsp olive oil
- 1 cup oat milk
- 2tbsp oat flour
- 1 clove garlic
- Bit of chopped onions
- Dash of thyme and marjoram
- 1 tbsp vegan butter
- Preheat oven to 150 c. While heating, peel and chop half of your squash.
- Place squash in ceramic baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and salt, bake for 30-ish minutes (depends, obviously, on how big you cut your pieces). Cook until very easily mashed with a spoon.
- While the squash bakes, begin making the dough. Melt butter and combine all dough ingredients until just mixed. Knead dough into a ball.
- Allow the dough to rest while you chop the garlic and onions (which we will use in the filling and the sauce). Flash sauté all together in vegan butter.
- Optional: Excellent point to stop for a coffee break/snack if you’re so inclined…
- Once the squash is done baking, mash together with half of the sautéd garlic and onions. Add in herbs, and salt. If you’re going for cheese- add in the feta too (or your choice of vegan alternative)! Mashwith a potato masher or spoon.
- For the sauce: add remaining sautéed onion and garlic + the rest of the sauce ingredients to a sauce pan and simmer for 15 mins.
- Time to prep the dumplings! Roll out your dough as thinly as your patience will allow.. turn a pint glass upside down and press into the dough to cut out your dumpling circles.
- Scoop a small spoonful of filling into the middle of the dough circle, fold in half, and firmly pinch the edges closed, forming a semi-circle.
- Once all the dough, filling (or your patience) is gone, drop dumplings into a pot of boiling water. Boil for 2-3 minutes (until dumplings float to the surface). Immediately remove from water, and serve!
I created this recipe together with my neighbor. She’s the best. Do you know your neighbors? Maybe they would like ”pumpkin” dumplings…
