Steamed Vegetable Buns, I like mine fluffy and slightly chewy, The key to making the dough for any good steamed bun is that the flour and water must be well incorporated.

The filling must be dry and void of any visible liquid. Wet filling destroys the dough, making it impossible to close the buns neatly.

These Steamed Vegetable Buns are 100% vegan––and delicious.
