Happy Lunar New Year with Golden Dumplings

Happy Lunar New Year My Dear Blogger friends 😀 Tomorrow 2/14, is the traditional Chinese New Year, and Valentines Day. Wish you all have a wonderful, prosperous, joyful year with your sweet one !

Festivals always means celebration with food for me. I wish I were at  home and taste all of the traditional spring festival food!!! Golden Dumplings is definitely a staple  in these wonderful dishes 😀  My way of celebration? Make Then !

These dumplings often cooked beforehand , and used in the hot pot dish or soup. It is the magic moment for me when my Mom flip the eggs and form a perfect dumpling. The ingredients is quite simple :

1. 2 Eggs (courtesy from Eggland best and Foodbuzz )

2. Beef, marinated with light soysauce and white wine, with sprinkle of TJ’s seafood grill seasoning.

Take a small pan, heat with veggie oil spray, and pour in 2 tsp of beaten eggs.

Trick: add in beef quickly before the egg become firm – you have to flip one side and make it stick with the other half. 😛

Then turn down the heat. Gently press the dumpling and make sure the beef is well done inside.

Then, please enjoy!! you can eat these golden cuties directly, or put them in your soup. The lightly browned egg and beef will render soup a nice flavor.  I made a Seaweed Tofu Soup today.

With some seaweed, frozen spinach, 2 golden dumplings, silken sofu, needle mushroom which is quite high in fiber, and has delicate fruity flavor.

Seasoned with white pepper and salt.

See how’s inside of the golden dumpling:

Hope you like our traditional Spring festival food!!!
