Vegan Quinoa Millet Rice Dumpling Cookery Class

Dragon Boat Festival is a traditional Chinese festival which falls on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month (3 June 2022). Apart from watching dragon boat races, we also eat sticky rice dumplings, a traditional festive food, to celebrate this festival. However, most commercially available sticky rice dumplings are high in energy and fat, and so excessive consumption may become a burden to our body. To enjoy the festive fun to the full without feeling the guilt of eating too much fat, this cooking class will use organic tri-coloured quinoa, millet and sticky rice to make rice dumpling, accompanying with chickpeas, peanuts, mung beans, red beans and red dates, to enhance the natural sweetness.

During the cookery class, participants will learn the techniques of handling the ingredients and wrapping the dumplings. The class will also share some tips for low-carbon cooking.

Each participant can make 5 quinoa millet dumplings, please bring your own food container.

* Since cooking the sticky rice dumplings takes time, the rice dumplings wrapped in the class need to be taken home for boiling.

The class will be taught in Cantonese.

Please refer to the Chinese Version for more information.
