Vegan nougat dumplings

Vegane Nougatknödel Vegan nougat dumplings

This is how you make this sweet temptation with nougat kernels yourself!

As you probably already know, we are probably the biggest dumpling fans in the world!
In addition to the hearty versions in the form of half and half potato dumplings or bread dumplings, it was of course only a matter of time before we dared to try the sweet version of the dumplings. This time we have “recreated” the classic nougat dumplings vegan and hope you like them as much as we do!

The dough for our vegan nougat dumplings is quite easy to prepare. First, the soy quark is mixed with melted butter before flour, sugar and semolina are added. After a resting period, the dough can then be filled with the nougat and cooked in water that is no longer bubbling.

Make sure that the water is really no longer sizzling hot. Otherwise it can happen that the dumplings dissolve when you put them in. The same principle as with potato or bread dumplings.

We think vegan nougat dumplings are just perfect tossed in breadcrumbs. For that certain something, we also added some ground almonds to the breadcrumb mixture. This is how this great (now) vegan dessert tastes really good! But what do you think of it?

Have fun trying it!
