Napa and Leek Dumplings for Vegetarian

Hello! Welcome to my new posting!

I shared the recipe of pork and leek dumpling before. At that time, I was feeling a little guilty. I was trying to be a vegetarian/vegan, but the recipe was using pork. It tasted great, but this time, I wanted to make vegetarian version, so I made the filling using just napa and leek. They have just veggies, but still taste awesome! If you feel like dumpling today, let’s try!
