If you don’t know what to do with old leftover bread, these amazing bread dumplings are a great way to use it!
We really don’t like to throw away any food, so whenever we have some old bread, that is a little bit dry, we use it to make these delicious bread dumplings. This way we turn old bread into an amazing, delicious meal, that is great for lunch or dinner and is also really easy to make.
Bread dumplings taste even better with some delicious sauce, like vegan bolognese sauce, creamy mushroom sauce or vegan goulash.
The main ingredient is obviously bread, but the dumplings also contain:
- plant based milk that makes bread really soft,
- flax seeds, that binds dumplings together, because when they are soaked in water, they become a great binder,
- onion, garlic, vegeta and salt, that give dumplings amazing flavour,
- buckwheat flour so that dumplings don’t fall apart. We use buckwheat flour, because it’s really healthy, but you can also use some other flour, just make sure that you adjust the amount of flour, because each flour acts really different.
You can also add some fresh basil or parsley.
