I visited a friend and we ended up making dumplings for lunch. Her recipe was so easy to follow. I really enjoyed the juicy dumplings she made for me, but its not somethings i see myself making often because its not all that healthy.
I decided to try out her recipe and it turned out to be great too. I made some with just plain flour and others i added spinach puree to make them green.
