Vegan Apricot Dumplings with Elderberry Sauce

Vegan Apricot Dumplings with Elderberry Sauce

Are you craving sweet food from time to time?

Then hopefully this recipe is something for you!

Sweet does not always mean unhealthy.

Therefore, we also serve something like this dish from time to time, but then of course in a modified variant with healthier ingredients.

This version of apricot dumplings comes completely without any animal components.
Normally, these dumplings are made with curd cheese and eggs.
In our recipe, we replaced the curd cheese with silken tofu.

Silken tofu is a soft type of tofu, which can be used for desserts, sauces or smoothies.

Since we never bake with eggs, we usually replace it with mashed bananas or soaked ground flaxseeds.

Summer time is harvest time for delicious apricots.

Wrapped in dough, the apricots bring a fresh and fruity note on your plate.

Not to mention, the kitchen will smell absolutely heavenly afterwards.

You can also use plums to fill the dumplings.


Hoping that our recipe meets your taste buds, we are looking forward to reading from you in the comments below.
