As I mentioned in my weekly update, my mom and I made some vegetarian buns and it was a total success!!!! Look how beautiful they are
the filling was made with chopped bok choy, chinese green 荠菜, shiitake mushroom and smoked tofu, salt and pinch of sugar.
for the dough I used the bread machine and this mix:
- 1 1/4 cup warm water
- 2 tbsp oil
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 3 cups flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 1/4 tsp yeast
Choose the dough cycle. Once it’s done, separate de dough into 21 small balls
add the fillings
make the bun (my mom is an expert on making the prettiest buns! )
let it rise in a warm place for 30 min, and steam for 20 min.
I either have one in the morning with oatmeal, or two with soy milk
Q: Do you like buns? what’s your favorite filling?
