Grain-Free Shrimp & Chive Dumplings

October 24, 2018 By Sarah White 2 Comments

These are the tastiest crispy grain-free dumplings you’ll ever make. I promise you won’t even miss the gluten and trans fats. Enjoy my new favourite comforting meal from This Doctor’s Kitchen: 

In the past 5 years I’ve slowly made significant dietary decisions for the sake of my health. In order to finally resolve my skin, energy and digestion issues this doctor’s kitchen is now entirely gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free and egg-free (90% of the time, we do have backyard hens after all, and their fresh tasty eggs aren’t always easy to give up). When you know better, you do better, and after years of exploring my own health via trial and error and functional testing I’ve found that I can maintain optimal energy, performance, skin and digestion when I eat a ‘clean diet’ free of these common food allergens.

Even if you don’t have significant health issues (like yours truly) you can still benefit from eating fewer gut-disrupting grains and inflammatory dairy from time to time. I’ve made these homemade dumplings many times for dinner parties and they’re always a crowd-pleaser, even among my gluten-loving friends. This healthier recipe is grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and tastier than any takeout version that I’ve tried. They’re also surprisingly easy to make, with ingredients that you likely already have at home (the only “weird” ingredient here is cassava flour, which is easy to find at your health food store or online). I serve these little guys topped with the world’s best miso chili sauce and a side of asian cabbage slaw tossed in a sesame dressing for a special, satisfying comfort meal.
