Tips for Making Vegan Dumpling Dough
Making vegan dough is never the easiest task, especially when the dough needs to be extremely thin, as is the case with dumplings. Always work quickly as well as add more water to the dough if you notice that it is drying out. Be sure that your work station is very thoroughly floured, as gluten free dough tends to stick more easily than gluten-filled dough.
Also, use caution pouring water into a hot skillet filled with oil, as grease fires can ignite. So, if a grease fire does erupt, cover the skillet, turn off the burner, and remove pan from heat. DO NOT add water to a grease fire.
