Vegetable-Miso Dumplings

M-J’s Vegetable-Miso Dumplings

First, I chopped carrots, Napa cabbage, celery and onion and put it all on a baking sheet into a medium-hot oven, for about twenty minutes. Then, I mixed the crispy vegetables with miso and a bit of water. Using Nasoya won ton skins (available at Wal-Mart for $2.74 a packet) and small dish of egg-white to dab onto the inner edges, I filled my dumplings. They were steamed for a half-hour, then lightly sautéed in sesame oil until one side was browned a bit, then a fourth-cup of water was added to the pan which was then covered, and cooked the dumplings a further five minutes or until the water had almost evaporated.

M-J’s elegant recipe for hommos bi tahini, hummus bi tahine, tahina or whichever way you prefer to spell chickpea and sesame dip: mash the chickpeas and add sesame paste, preferably a very liquid one with lots of natural oil in it, and squeeze into this mixture the juice of a lemon, add salt, red pepper and olive oil to your taste. Mix until almost smooth. Serve hummus bi tahini with warm pita bread, Moroccan olives, shawarma, and whatever else you have on your meze table. Hummus is a perfect dip for summer entertaining. And without the very inelegant addition of raw garlic, which no one will miss, this dip is more socially acceptable. The lemon component is very refreshing, the sesame paste is tasty, and the garbanzos (chick-peas) are light and airy. Combining these simple ingredients results in a magical dish that is very popular at parties.
