Took a break from cooking on the weekend. Sometimes I get lazy. Here’s a new recipe I cooked up tonight: Cooked kale and pork dumplings.
Cooked Kale and Pork Dumplings
This is really lazy cooking. You can make your own dumplings but honestly, store bought ones are so cheap and delicious. I try new ones each week. These are pork and corn dumplings and they are delicious.
What you’ll need for lazy cooking:
- 1 pack of frozen dumplings (any flavour)
- 1 stock of fresh kale (about 2 cups)
- Seasoning: olive oil, sesame oil, salt, pepper, garlic
Kale: remove the stocks and cut kale into pieces as shown on image above. Wash and dry the kale. Set the kale aside.
Using a skillet, heat up some olive oil and salt and pepper. Alternatively, you can toss in some onions and mushrooms to add a bit more punch. If using onions, cook until they turn brown.
Add in the dumplings and about 1/2 cup of water. Bring to a boil. When the dumplings are tender enough to poke a fork through them, add in the kale.
Kale cooks quickly and only needs a couple of minutes on medium heat to cook. As the leaves wilt, you can add your choice of spices and sauces. I added a tiny bit of sesame oil.
This whole process took about fifteen minutes and it tastes delicious.
