EP 11: China – Edamame Dumplings

I really love dumplings and I’ve been playing with fun fillings for years. One of my favourite filling is with Judd mat Gaardebounen (smoked pork with broad beans), traditional Luxembourgish flavours wrapped up in a dumpling. So I wanted to film my Judd mat Gaardebounen dumplings in my Staycation show – but I couldn’t get hold of any Judd at this time of year! The smoked meat is predominantly used in heavy autumnal winter dishes such as choucroute, so no way you can get hold of it in summer…

So instead I decided to make a vegetarian version of my favourite dumpling. I’m mixing broad beans and edamame, and seasoning them with Bounekräitchen (summer savoury). It tastes very Luxembourgish and is vegetarian. You could serve these dumplings with a simple dollop of mustard or soy sauce, but I like to have them with a sour cream and herb dip. So yum!

This is a recipe from my cookbook ‘Flavours of Home’. You can find the full recipe here.

This recipe was created as part of my “Staycation” show, inspiring people with recipes from my travels that they can recreate at home – to get us all to travel in our minds despite being stuck at home this summer…
