  • 2 x garlic cloves chopped
  • 3 x 1 cm slices of smoked tofu - cubed
  • 1 x small carrot - grated
  • 1 cup x fine sliced asian cabbage
  • 1 tspn curry powder
  • 1 package x wonton wrapper
  • 2 tspn fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tspn sesame oil
  • 1 x lemon or lime - the juice of it
  • 1-3 tspn raw sugar or agave sirup
  • 1 handful fresh sliced spring onions


Very simple – use a frying pan and heat some Sunflower oil. Start to fry the onion, garlic and mince and stir to combine. Add the veggies and spices/herbs and cook for about 10 min. When finish let it cool down a bit and start to fill in the wonton wrapper – it is very easy to handle because the dough sticks together very well when you push it together to close the wonton.

When you finished the filling, steam it. I used a Chinese bamboo steamer — heated some water in a pot and steamed the Dim Sims approx 10 – 15 min.

To make the dipping sauce:

Just add the ingredients to make a good balanced sauce between sweet and sour — I had approx a good splash of Soy Sauce, 1 teaspoon of Sesame Oil, juice of a lemon or lime, 1-2 teaspoon raw sugar and a bit of water.

Serve the Dim Sims on a plate – top with the sauce and some fresh chopped spring onions.

  • Oooh, this looks good. Where can I get smoked tofu? I think I might be able to make it myself as well as I have a smoker.

    • I buy my smoked tofu at my vegan food store — Brisbane, the green edge. It should be available in every vegan food store — if not — make your own. You already have a smoker, thats awesome — just use that or use liquid smoke what I use — also from my vegan store :-)

    • I am looking forward to your feedback from your friends — if you can’t eat tofu, just leave it. Should be also delicous without it :-)

  • Can you freeze these before cooking? And do you cook from frozen or thaw first?
