Dim Sum: Pea-Shoot Dumplings, "Stir-Fry" Buns, Lotus Root Chips

Dim Sum 1/29

Pea-Shoot Dumplings
(blanched pea shoots, bamboo, lotus root mixed with sesame oil, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, salt and pepper)

"Stir-Fry" Buns
(tofu, carrot, garlic, ginger, bok choy, scallions, tamari, sesame oil)

Lotus Root Chips

Day three of the Dim Sum experiment... the blanched pea-shoot, bamboo and lotus root makes a thick enough paste to hold together inside the steamed dumplings.

The stir-fry buns were a request from our son who wondered where dim sum has been all his life. ;)

The lotus root chips were a request from our daughter who stole half of them when I turned my back from taking the pictures -- hey, at least she waited until afterward this time...
