It is always good to find new products that are made for vegans and/or vegetarians. Even though I am not vegan myself, several of my friends are so it is useful to have a range of products in the freezer that can be offered to them when they visit. And we eat a lot of vegetarian food in my house, not because we are vegetarian, but because that type of food is often really tasty!

We found, on opening the pack, that there were two varieties included - mushroom and spinach. The mushroom dumplings contained a mixture of six different types of Japanese mushroom while the spinach dumplings contained bok choy and tofu as well as the spinach itself. The two varieties came in different shapes, so it was easy to tell which was which - and the spinach dumplings were bright green so there was no mistaking them!

Having already tried two different meat varieties from House of Dumplings, I was really interested to try the meatless version. I am open to new tastes, so was ready for something different, but these were quite new to me and very tasty too! Three of us were sharing the packet so I took two of each variety and my friends tried the remaining six.

One of my friends did not like the spinach flavour; he found it too spicy and did not really like the appearance as it did not look like a dumpling to him! However, he was outvoted. His wife and I both liked the flavour; we tried it plain and then dunked in the sauce that was included in the package and agreed it was a good substitute for a traditional meat dumpling.

All three of us loved the mushroom dumplings. When you bit into one, you could see that it was absolutely packed full of mushroom pieces. They thought their children would like them as well, and plan to buy another packet at some stage to try them out on the kids. Again, we tried them both with and without the dipping sauce. I had prepared all the dumplings by steaming and then lightly pan frying, but we thought that they might be better served straight from the steamer rather than having the browning afterwards. So next time I will leave the frying pan out of the equation with this variety.

These dumplings are suitable for everyone, whether vegan/vegetarian or not, which means they are really versatile. I plan to purchase a couple of boxes to keep in. They come in neat, stackable cardboard containers which take up the minimum of space on a freezer shelf and have a long "best before" date. There is an inner sealed package which ensures that the contents do not dry out. This is important because dumplings tend to stick together if they are thawed before cooking (something I have learned from bitter experience!) so this provides an extra layer of insulation. It is clear that a lot of thought and care has gone into the packaging to ensure that it matches the quality of the contents. Can't wait to try them again!
