This New York Times recipe popped into my inbox a few days ago and I was excited to give it a try. I went to pick up some dumpling wrappers at Whole Foods and unfortunately, they only had eggroll wrappers.  Being a fan of Bob Ross, I subscribe to the saying that  “We don’t make mistakes, we just have happy little accidents!”

I followed the recipe for the “dumplings” but was not happy with the filling. It tasted bland and spicey. So, I decided to make some adjustments and the outcome was spectacular.

I’ve included a step-by-step picture tutorial on how to wrap the pockets. First, cut the squares into two triangles. Add a small amount of filling and fold over like shown in the pictures. Please use water and lightly coat the edges to make sure every side is sealed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This does take a bit of time but makes enough to pop in the freezer for a quick, weeknight meal alongside a salad.

ENJOY!

I used to cook with shiitake mushrooms a lot but have used more cremini and portobello varieties lately. The shiitake has a buttery, woodsy taste and definitely lends itself to this particular recipe.

If you don’t have arugula on hand, any other green would work including spinach, kale, or escarole. The key is to mix them into the noodles only long enough to wilt and not cook them.

This recipe is fairly easy to prepare but please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

ENJOY!

Now is the time! From now and through June is the best season to eat asparagus here in the USA! I created this recipe and although it takes a few steps, it is well worth the effort!

I would definitely recommend this for a comforting-yet-elegant dinner or even as a side or main dish for Easter!

ENJOY!
