I was slightly skeptical of this recipe (the portions look really small on the plate) but it’s actually rather filling and satisfying. The peanut miso sauce makes it. Photo is the sandwich in progress (you can see the results in the next post).
Just a note that subbing 1 cup wheat flour for 1 cup white flour in this recipe works well. We also did this half pepperoni, half chicken sausage this time, and it was quite good.
John and I both thought this recipe kind of tasted like an Asian dumpling without the filling. Very nice, and the plum sauce wasn’t bad (usually I’m not a huge fan of meat and fruit together, but this wasn’t overly fruity or sweet). Bulgur’s a good filler ingredient – I’ll probably try it out elsewhere (turkey meatballs?). I added crushed peanuts and lime to the slaw (a good slaw recipe that my friend Ben makes uses both of those).
Kind of ridiculously easy but a good one to have, considering I always seem to have extra cucumbers and feta around.
