Spinach & Mushroom Dumplings with Mango Sauce

DSC_7695xblog

Namaste beloved ones!  Although I haven’t posted on here in two months (I’ve been hiking and connecting with Gaia with much of my free time), I have been posting on my Instagram (LivePureJenna) daily with lots of recipes which I will soon bring onto the blog.

This recipe is absolutely EPIC!  I’ve been making so many wraps lately and I don’t know why I haven’t make these sooner!  They are super easy to put together, filling, flavorful and put the biggest smile on my face knowing I can enjoy one of my favorite Asian foods (dumplings!) raw and vegan.  I have many friends in Thailand right now posting some gorgeous looking dim sum pictures so I was really inspired to make my own!  I will definitely be making variations of this in the near future, so don’t forget to subscribe to the blog to get your notifications.

The wraps for these dumplings are a basic fruit leather made in the dehydrator.   As I was getting ready to stuff the wraps for this recipe, my husband kept eating them, hehe.  Even if you don’t want to make the full recipe, the wraps alone are also delicious and taste like fruit roll ups!  Wraps are such a fun way to spice up your meals and to get a different texture.  It’s all about fun, play and pushing your creativity boundaries in the kitchen!  I not only view food as pure love and nourishment for our bodies, but also as an art.  My mind is constantly flowing recipes and I promise to keep you all included, even if I can’t do a full blown post like this one with several pictures.

This recipe is loaded with spinach, a power house super food with nutrients and healing properties that make it a top dark leafy green in my household.  It’s great for your skin, hair, bone health, and provides protein, iron, vitamins and minerals.   It carries anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits from spinach phytonutrients including flavonoids and carotenoid.  Consuming spinach can also improve blood glucose control in diabetics, lowering blood pressure and lowering the risk of developing asthma and promotes regularity due to its high in fiber and water content. Anything that helps promote a healthy digestive tract is the key to healing many health issues.  Spinach FTW!

  • 1 Cup of Dried Mangos (soaked until softened)
  • 2 Cups of Baby Spinach
  • 1 Cup Filtered Water
  1. Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.
  2. Pour the contents onto 2 dehydrator sheets.  Spread evenly with a spacular.
  3. Dehydrate on 115 degrees for 3 hours (note you want it to remain somewhat sticky for folding).  I started using Tribest Sedona Express and love it!
  4. Cut into squares, about 3″ each.
  5. Make sure you place parchment paper between each wrapper so they don’t stick together.

Filling

  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 4 Cups of Baby Spinach
  • 1 1/2 Cups Shittake Mushrooms (finely chopped, save 1/2 cup)
  • 3 Dates

  1. Place garlic into a food processor and blend until minced.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients (expect 1/2 cup of the mushrooms).
  3. Pulse until a nice filling texture is acquired.
  4. Place into a bowl and stir in the mushrooms.
  5. When the wrappers are done, I recommend placing the filling into the dehydrator to warm up while you cut the wrappers into squares.
  6. To assemble the dumplings, place the wrapper sticky side up.
  7. Add about 1” of he filling into the wrap.  Fold into a triangle and seal sides.
  8. You can enjoy right away or place back into the dehydrator until desired.

I loved eating sushi growing up, especially in college, I would eat it 2-3x a week!  I was never aware or conscious about where my food came from or what it truly was.  Our cosmic oceans are full of heavy metal contaminations and 75% of all ocean fisheries are either at their limits or are overfished.  The oceans […]
