Soft, fluffy, vegan steamed buns made with whole wheat flour and turmeric and filled with vegetables.
Normally baozi is made with all purpose flour but I try to eat more whole food. I made the dough with a mix of all purpose and whole wheat flour. I added some turmeric to incorporate some healthy spice. After the lockdown and the lot of baking, cooking I really feel the need for some lifestyle change. Hubby is crazy for bao buns and I was bit worried how he will like the whole wheat version. They passed the test, he had 6.
This time I filled the buns with some zucchini and carrot mix but the best part that you can use any veggies. You can always find something in the fridge for filling. I often use mushrooms, zucchini, carrots, spinach, bok choi or cabbage. Tofu is also great option.
I dip my bao buns in soy sauce but you can try with hot chili oil, sweet chili or sweat and sour sauce.
