Vegan mini pretzel dumplings with mushroom vegetables and herbs

Dumplings are wonderful. Not only because they taste fantastic, but also because they are such a great leftover food. You have old bread at home that you can no longer use? Great, make dumplings out of it. So you have not only actively done something against food waste and for climate protection, but also a delicious meal on the table.

But wait a minute.. Eggs don't go in dumplings? For the bond? So no vegan


The fact that you need eggs to make dumplings is one of those things that is common knowledge. Very few people know that this is not entirely true. Eggs are absolutely not necessary for bread dumplings. they stick together perfectly even without them. And if you want to try it out yourself, I recommend today's recipe to you: pretzel dumplings with creamy mushroom vegetables. It goes perfectly with autumn, is quick and easy and tastes so good that it would never occur to anyone that this recipe is vegan.

Stock tip

If you have enough stale bread to use, then make a few more of the pretzel dumplings and stock up on a small supply. You can freeze the dumplings really well. Simply prepare the dumplings just like you would if you were to eat them straight away and then let them cool down completely. Then you put them next to each other in a freezer-safe box and just freeze them.

If you finally want to eat the dumplings, you can take them out in portions, let them thaw and warm them up. You can either use it in the microwave or (and that's what I like best) sliced ​​and sautéed in the pan.

By the way, Sarah from "Kinder geht essen " also tried the pretzel dumplings and was absolutely thrilled. You can read your non-vegan version here: Pretzel dumplings with creamy mushroom vegetables.
