One thing I hate when I go to eat in a Chinese place is that gluten free dumplings don’t always exist, and I love them toooo much to not be able to eat it. So I decided to cook it by myself and here are the following steps you will need to do to enjoy eating this amazing Chinese specialty !

An easy recipe as all the one we propose on Gluten Libre.

We decided to cook it with vegan chicken & broccoli with a spicy maple sauce. Let’s cook together!
