This Rice Paper Dumpling recipe is quick, easy and made with simple ingredients. They're crispy on the outside and stuffed with a flavourful filling of tofu and vegetables. Vegan + gluten free.
After testing several rounds of my vegan chicken drumsticks and vegan shrimp recipe that call for rice paper, I had a ton left over. We made fresh summer rolls stuffed with vermicelli, tofu and vegetables but wanted to switch it up one night and decided to try pan frying them instead.
To be honest, the first time pan fried them it didn't work. The wrapper broke... so I threw it all into a bowl and served it for dinner anyways. Despite the messy look, it was SO GOOD. Think... deconstructed dumplings. Delicious dumping filling with bites of crispy yet chewy rice paper (kinda like noodles?). While I didn't mind eating it straight out of the bowl like that, I decided to try again but this time wrapping it twice so it holds better... and it worked!! Beautifully golden crispy on the outside while not breaking apart. The best part? These dumplings literally take me less than 20 minutes to make which is pretty quick for dumplings. Let's make them, shall we?
Ingredients for Rice Paper Dumplings
- Rice paper
- Tofu: medium firm, firm or extra firm all work for this recipe. Just be sure to cook off or press out the excess liquid.
- Vegetables: The recipe for the filling is my go-to, simple filling I typically use for vegan gyoza. It has carrots and cabbage but you can use any (un-juicy) vegetables of your choice.
- Sesame oil
- Soy sauce: or tamari for gluten free.
This recipe is really customizable though, so feel free to experiment with the aromatics, spices, sauces and vegetables! If you're not vegan, you can also change up the protein as well.
- Make the filling: add the shredded vegetables, tofu, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper to a bowl. Use your hands to mash the mixture together until well combined.
- Soak the rice paper: Fill a shallow dish with warm water and wet the rice papers for 3 seconds or until slightly softened (they will continue to soften after taking it out of the water), and then place it onto your working surface.
- Wrap: Place about 2 tablespoons of the filling into the middle of the rice paper. Fold the top of the rice paper down, fold the left side over to the right, the right side over to the left and then bring the bottom portion of the rice paper up to seal. Repeat one more time for a double layer to ensure it does not break when cooking. TIP: place the first wrapped dumpling folded side down so that the thickness of the wrapper is the same on both sides.
- Cook: Heat a pan over medium heat. Add enough oil to coat the pan. Place the dumpling in the pan and cook until golden brown (you can cover the pan if you wish). Flip and cook the other side until golden brown. Remove from pan and enjoy!
Tips & Tricks for Making Rice Paper Dumplings
- Do not over soak: Dip the rice paper in water for about 5 seconds. They continue to soften out of the water. Over soaking the rice papers will cause them to break when pan frying them and cause them to be soggy.
- Soak rice paper in cold water: Warm or hot water causes them to get too soft and tear.
- Use a wooden cutting board to wrap: When wrapping, I find it easier to do it on a wooden cutting board because they do tend to stick on glass and plastic, causing them to tear.
- Use two rice papers to wrap one dumpling: Especially if you are new to using rice paper or it's your first time making them, this prevents them from tearing when cooking.
- Second layer: When wrapping the second layer, keep the folded side down so that the thickness of the skin it same on both sides.
- Cover dumplings with a slightly damp lint-free towel or paper towel: this prevents the dumplings from drying before cooking.
- Brush and cook with oil: Ensure to either brush the dumplings with oil or add oil to the pan. The most common cause of the dumplings tearing is because they stick to the pan.
- Use a non-stick skillet: This makes them easier to flip and cook without tears because they won't stick to the pan.
- Don't over-crowd the pan: Rice papers tend to 'stick' when they touch each other so when pan frying, do not let the edges of the dumplings touch one another or they may cause tearing. Brushing them with oil also helps with this.
- Serve & eat them immediately! These rice paper dumplings don't stay crispy for a long time so they are truly best consumed as soon as they're done cooking.
- Can you air fry these rice paper dumplings? Yes! Once you wrap them all up, spray with a little oil and then air fry at 375 F (190 C) for 12-15 minutes, flipping half way.
- Can you bake rice paper dumplings? While I haven't tried baking them myself, I have had feed back that you can bake them by brushing them with oil and then cooking them in the oven at 375 F (190 C) for about 15-20 minutes, flipping half way.
- Do you soak the rice paper in cold or hot water? Dip the rice papers in cold water for a few seconds. Warm or hot water makes the rice papers too soft and causes tearing.
- Can you make them ahead? You can prepare the fillings ahead of time but you must wrap them before serving.
- Can you freeze rice paper dumplings? No. The rice papers do not freeze well and the texture really changes when defrosted.
These rice paper dumplings have been on REPEAT. It's perfect for using up left over ingredients in the fridge and I love that it comes out slightly different each time for some variation.
Plus, if you've been looking for gluten free dumpling wrappers these are a great option. Rice papers are inexpensive and can be found at just about any grocery store.
I haven't tried baking or air frying them, but if you do please share how it goes in the comment section below! I think if you spray and brush them with a little oil they will crisp up pretty nicely 😉

Lisa Kitahara says
Hi Rita, it's in the recipe card! 🙂
Where is the recipe card?
This was so simple and delicious! I can definitely recommend this recipe for a cozy night in, will be even better on a chilly autumn evening. The crisp of the outer layer and chewyness of the inside make this a family favorite!
Emily @bythevedge says
Excellent recipe & easy to follow. Loved the new method for dumplings!
Not that I'm a non meat eater but I love the recipes and enjoyed making my dumplings for dinner Last night. Keep up the amazing ideas that inspire other!!
Ive recently been eating plant based and trying all sorts of new recipes. This is one of my favorites! By the 4th dumpling i got the hang of wrapping and cooking but even the botches ones were yummy.
Sarah V says
Really simple and delicious recipe. I gave the veggie filling a quick sauté for a few minutes because I didn't want a raw filling and let it cool before filling and wrapping rice papers. I will be making this again and again. Thank you!
Easy, gf, amd taaaasty!
those dumplings were super easy to make and soooooooo delicious! ❤️
Very easy recipe to follow with few ingredients I already have at home. Taste delicious 😋
Is it possible to make them before hand and freeze it for later?
너무너무 맛있습니다! 엄청 간단해서 누구나 할 수 있는 요리! 맛있고 멋있고.. 라이스 페이퍼가 기름과 만나 바삭하고 쫄깃했어요! 안에 야채들과 두부들이 촉촉하게 익어서 부드러웠습니다. 부추도 추가로 넣어보았는데 괜찮아요! 이런 간단한 레시피라면 가끔 기름지고 튀긴 거 땡길 때 비건으로 쉽게 만들 수 있어서 좋아요 다음에 또 만들거예요 (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑

Sam Minagawa says
I LOVE this dish!! It’s so easy to make and people love it!! This is definitely one of my go-to dishes. It’s really addicting!
I subbed in ground turkey for tofu and I massaged the cabbage with a little salt to get out excess water before I added it to the filling mixture. These were so easy and delicious! Definitely reminds me of my mom's gyoza, but it's delightfully gluten-free!
Easy, quick and delicious recipe! I made it second day in row! Thank you!
These were so easy to make, & so so tasty! Definitely happy to have this recipe in my roster 🙌🏼🙌🏼
I made this! I typically make Puerto Rican food so this different the rice paper wrapping was the hardest and they came out like big vegan egg rolls lol it’s great I would just season the filling more and make sure to form small and flat dumplings to evenly cook. it was really tasty and my bf liked it , I’ll try wrapping the dumplings again!
I’ve made these twice already, and they’re even better for lunch the next day 😋
What kind of cabbage did you use?
I made this twice already since I saw it a couple days ago! I ran out of rice paper or I think I would have made it again lol. I didn’t have silken tofu at the time of making so I just crumbled the block of firm that I had and mixed it in and also made a spicy peanut dipping sauce. Thanks for the recipe it was so easy I’ll be making this many times over
Super easy, delicious, and fun to make! My partner loved them and says it's one of the best things I've made for him.
So easy and so delicious. I always have rice wrappers in my pantry because I love summer rolls and make them a lot but this was an application that i never thought of. Thank you for the inspiration! I changed it the filling based on what i had on hand (too lazy to go to the store lol). My filling was a vegan pork flavored mince, finely chopped baby bok choy, carrot, and pa kimchi. Next time I want to try just 1 paper as mine came out with an inner layer that was a little on the chewy side and i like the crispy more.
Also, i froze the leftover dumplings because I think they'll come back nicely in the oven or air fryer and i just couldn't eat 15 by myself!
Such a great way to use up rice paper! I didn't have all the exact ingredients - I substituted cabbage with sauerkraut, making it more similar to a kimchi dumpling, added cilantro, and sesame oil/toasted sesame seeds to the filling. Would also be good to add chopped shiitake or woodear mushrooms and I'd probably try this with chopped water chestnuts or peanuts for texture. So quick and easy to make, I'll be adding this to my recipe rotation for when I want dumplings.
Great idea. I’ve tried and it was amazing! For sure will be doing it again!
In hospital now. Can’t wait to go home and make these babies. Yum!!
Super easy in the making & they taste amazing! 😍
Will definitely make them again - thank you ☺️
This recipe is easy to follow and absolutely delicious. 10/10 would eat again. 🙂
I'd been craving dumplings for the longest time, but have been told to avoid gluten. I'm so glad I came across this recipe because I was about to experiment making gluten free dumpling wrappers and was dreading it. Honestly..how did i not think of using rice paper? Such an easy swap... AND this recipe was delicious. Thank you Lisa! 🙃
Tomoko Miyata says
This is my first time trying her recipe. As a gyoza lover, I had to try it!! As I put too much into a rice paper it came out to be ugly but tasted amazing!!! I am not a vegan but I really really loved it. And this dumplings never get heavy in my stomach!! Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe, I will definitely make them again!!!
Omg thank you for sharing this!
I made this tonight and everyone absolutely loved it. It’s going to be a regular! Just love the crunchy and chewy texture so much.
Thanks for this and keep sharing! I’ll keep eating haha ~
Andrew S says
Made these and added a dash of kimchi relish for spice. Super easy to make and full of flavor. The texture was amazing too.
This is so brilliant!! I made it using your recipe with slight variations (didn’t have cabbage so I used riced cauli and added a few drops of hoisin) and they were soooo yummy and perfect for a weeknight dinner while still feeling special! My kiddos called them “pillow treats” lol and gobbled them up. Thank you!!
I had 5 leftover rice papers when i made the recipe tonight so i made rolls. I avoided disaster while frying it and they are DELICIOUS ! Will definitely rebuy rice paper haha ! Thank you for this simple yet fantastic recipe
This recipie was amazing! Even my picky husband loved it! The dumplings are so unique with a crispy ans chewy texture at once! Will definitely make these again.
Can you please clarify the amount of tofu needed? the recipe says 1/2 block (80g). The blocks of tofu in my store are 454 grams which is way over the 80 g you have listed in the recipe. So do I use 1/2 a block which is 200 g or 80 g? Thanks.
Lisa Kitahara says
Hi Jill, it is 80g
I will 100% be making these again! So tasty without being too heavy like dumplings can sometimes be. Plus, it was so nice to get the flavour and knowing exactly what is going into the recipe (no extras like potential MSG). I always have rice paper on hand for fresh spring rolls, so I am very excited to have another use for them. The only thing I did that the recipe didn’t include was the addition of a finely chopped portobello mushroom, but otherwise I followed it exactly and it was perfect!
MSG is safe to consume and provides delicious umami flavor. I encourage you (and anyone else seeing this comment) to learn more about the history of MSG and xenophobia. Article: “MSG in Chinese food isn't unhealthy -- you're just racist, activists say” https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/01/18/asia/chinese-restaurant-syndrome-msg-intl-hnk-scli/index.html
These were so amazing. The recipe was easy to follow. The texture was a perfect mix of chewy and crunchy. My fiancé and I immediately ate them, before the rest of our dinner was made lol. I'll definitely be making them again!
So fun to make! And not that hard to wrap or fry I didn’t have the tofu so I substituted for egg and it was equally delicious! Definitely making these again👍🏼
This recipe was so delicious! I will definitely be making it again. Such a unique texture being crispy yet chewy! Loved them so much even my picky husband wanted more.
Super easy recipe to follow and tasty! I added a few other veggies to mine like shiitake and water chestnuts. A good base recipe that you can play around with the filling ingredients! As someone who has celiac I love finding recipes like this that are tasty and easy to alter into a gluten free way.
super easy & fast to make and damn soooooo yummy!!!
Nida Masood says
Made this one - what an easy and filling recipe . Served it with peanut sauce. yummy!!
There gotta be a way to make the inner layer a little less chewy, a single wrap perhaps ..
Tasty and super easy to make! I appreciate the creative use of rice paper. (It’s nice to make something other than spring rolls with them.) The filling reminds me of what I use when making egg rolls. The ingredients are things I often have on hand and it was simple to throw together. Low effort, great flavor!
Love this! So convenient and delicious, fam loved it too! This is going to be a new go to recipe!
this recipe was so easy to follow, the ratio of seasonings are on point, this was so fun to make and so delicious to eat! nothing but good comments for this recipe 🙂
Great idea of a recipe! Easy to make and made for a light and satisfying dinner! Thanks 🙏
Delicious recipe!! Even I’m not a vegetarian, I am obsess about it!! Always have so many left over rice paper and never finish it, very good ideas to use it!! I love how crispy the rice paper is and how soft and delicate texture inside ❤️❤️❤️
Great, easy recipe. I totally forgot to wrap my dumplings twice though and they split but the filling was delicious and the combo of crunchy and chewy rice paper made it fun to eat and not too heavy. I'm thinking I'll add more spring onion next time and will definitely double wrap, I love how versatile this recipe is. The fillings are a guideline but you can really fill it with whatever you have at hand (though this tofu one was bomb). The wrapping stage makes this a fun group activity ❤️
Loved this recipe!! All I had was firm tofu (that hadn’t been pressed) but it still worked great! I also used brown rice paper, which worked very well. Non-vegan family loved it and someone even said it tastes like chicken :)) one point for the vegans! Will definitely be making these again.
Delicious! It was so easy to make and I love the tofu filling. 10/10 would make again. ☺️☺️☺️
WOW—my boyfriend and I are not vegan or gluten-free, but we both loved these!
To be honest, I'm always a little skeptical of very pretty-looking cooking TikTok videos, but this recipe is actually great and very easy to follow. We recently moved to an area with very few Asians, so when I saw the local grocery store had Vietnamese rice papers, I was so excited to try making these dumplings. I only had firm tofu, and used round red radishes instead of carrots, and spinach instead of cabbage, but followed the rest of the instructions. My wrapping skills are not as nice as Lisa's so before pan-frying them, my dumplings looked kind of sad but then they came together really nicely in the pan!
This is totally going to become a regular rotation in our house. I don't have the patience to make my own dumpling wrapper, and I love that Vietnamese rice papers are a dry non-perishable shelf item instead of the refrigerated store-bought ones. Highly recommend!
An amazing recipe! So fast and easy when craving dumplings. I salted the veggies and let them sit for a bit so I could squeeze out the excess moisture before adding the tofu and seasoning to give everything a little more bite. A stellar recipe that I’m adding to my weekly dinners!
Such a great recipe! I also used vegan ground beef as part of the filling. Will defiantly make it again
Love it, So good! Greetings from the Netherlands
It was so good! Love it. Greetings from Netherlands
Lindsay Taguchi says
Such a good recipe and sooo easy to make!! Definitely cooking this again. ❤️
Colleen Rocap says
Ok, YUM! These are SO easy to make and super tasty!! Definitely adding to my "staple recipes" list along with plenty of other Okonomi Kitchen recipes. To fry, I brushed with oil and cooked in a non-stick pan - worked great!! Also was lazy and just ran everything through a food processor to chop instead of actually chopping lol. Thanks for another amazing recipe, Lisa <3
I LOVED THIS SOO MUCH
I did this three ways: in a steamed bao bun, in a toasted bao bun and using the rice papers. All three were a hit ! Of course the rice paper version is the easiest and tastiest but the buns give it a nice texture.
This is the first savory recipe that impressed me in a LOOOONG time. This will definitely be something I'd have almost every week 😋
Sandy Flann says
These dumplings were easy to make and the rice paper wasn't too fiddly, I think I made my filling too wet so the rice paper didn't get too crispy but the flavour was amazing. We are not vegan but trying to increase the repertoire of foods we eat and this recipe will be done again. It got a big thumbs up from the kids too!
Sarah (Vegan Recipes & Vibes) says
I’m always looking for new ways to use my massive stack of rice paper wrappers, so this recipe is perfect! I used slightly different veggies in the filling (tofu, zucchini, carrot, onion) since it’s all I had in the fridge. They turned out SO GOOD!!! Very easy and fun to make, and quick to pan fry (I didn’t use oil and they turned out great). Crispy on the outside, slightly chewy on the inside, very flavorful and different. I will be making these often!
Tip: blot the wet rice paper wrappers with a towel before filling to prevent them from being too wet.
Ayame C. says
So easy and accessible even for students !
It was delicious. I love the wrapping technique and you can actually change the filling and enjoy as you prefer 🙂
They're super easy and fun to make and taste delicious, i for sure going to repeat soon 🤤🤤
I knew the moment I saw your post on IG that I needed to try these and I’m so glad I tried them sooner than letting them get lost in my never ending collection of saved recipes!
I’ve been juicing quite a bit and save the pulp in the freezer. This is a great way to use up the pulp. I cooked the filling to ensure things were not juicy and made these right before class. A snack that left me full past dinner. Your tip for wrapping was essential to avoid frustration, thanks for your trial and error! These are going to be a regular meal in our home. Thank you so much!
Excellent!! I love all the textures and flavors
Very easy and not expensive to make. Will be making this again!!
Amazing amazing recipe! We love making dumplings and we often make different fillings depending on the veggies we have at home. But the rice paper wrapper idea is just genius, it‘s so easy and so so good! So crispy on the outside but also chewy it‘s the perfect combination. Definitely will make again!
Such a great easy recipe! I’m always looking for recipes that I can tweak to a gluten free option and this one was basically done for me☺️ Just subbed some Yamato and added a few other veggies for crunch. Awesome! I even ate the left overs the next night by popping them in the toaster oven and they were extra crispy!
I made your rice paper roll dumplings last night! Such an easy recipe to follow. they were so delicious 🤤 thank you so much!! I haven’t had a dumpling in sooo long since I was diagnosed as coeliac. This is as close as I can get and I’m so happy 😀
So easy to make, yet so delicious!
Love the texture of the rice paper and the crunchy filling.
Made this for the first time tonight and I’ll definitely be making it again. Might addd some mince like others in the comments have done.
One word! Yum! I didn't have everything on hand that Lisa used but used the same basic sauce and idea. Red cabbage, mushrooms, tofu and edamame made for a perfect filling and easy weekday meal.
Please, try this recipe. This was honestly the best thing I’ve made in a while. I’ve been in a recipe rut for a bit but I saw this and I knew my tummy would end up happy. I’ve made soup dumplings with rice paper before but never thought to make actual filled dumplings! I have PKU and I can’t have a lot of protein and this recipe was really easy to swap out ingredients and replace it with things I could have. So, if you have any nutritional needs I definitely think that this is an easy recipe to make work for you. I made this for my meal prep this week and literally, just now, finished the last of it. I’m so sad but so happy that I had such a good dinner for the past three days. Please, give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
I'd been craving dumplings for the longest time, but was told to avoid gluten. I’m so glad I came across this recipe because I was about to experiment making gluten free dumpling wrappers from scratch and was dreading it. Honestly... how did I not think of using rice paper? Such an easy swap… AND this recipe is delicious. Crispy on the outside and the rice paper doesn't rip easily because it's double wrapped. Thank you Lisa!
Sherly Wiharja says
I made the trial for this "Rice Paper Dumplings" for my family.. then for the first bite, Woowww... they said "OMG.. so DELICIOUS and yummy!!!"
Yeayyy... NO DOUBT! @okonomikitchen you rocked it!! Thanks for the delicious recipes..😘
The dumplings are so good! I loved the contrasting textures of the somewhat crunchy vegetables on the inside and the crispy rice paper on the outside.
Made these today and they were SO yummy! So glad I came across this on IG!
Great recipe! Exactly what I was looking for in my dinner, and the recipe was very simple to follow. I can’t wait to make it again,
This was so easy and absolutely delicious. I’m not a vegan but these recipes will convert me. This rice paper dumpling hit the spot. It was crunchy, crispy, chewy, and had all the flavor. You will put this as your go to recipe.
Iye Loves Life says
This recipe was so easy to make and delicious. I paired it with pickled watermelon rinds and it’s amazing how they complimented each other. Both dishes help use up ingredients that would have otherwise gone to waste. I highly recommend.
Oh my gosh! I’m not a vegan but I do love tofu and this dish satisfies all the tastebuds. It’s soft, earthy, chewy and crunchy at the same time. The other part of it is that it’s quick and easy to make. Ten out ten, I’ve already recreated this recipe 3 times now. I’m hooked!
Lisa, you have wonderful recipes and they are not intimidating. They are fun healthy dishes that I see myself cooking often. I can’t believe I just recently discovered your talent. Fan for life!!!
Loved this recipe! Saw it on tiktok, pinned it on Pinterest and made it last night and tonight. Was sooo goood and double wrapping was perfect
I really enjoyed making this recipe. The dumplings were so delicious. 🥰
They're great! Super easy to make and tasty, both hot and cold!
I really enjoyed making this recipe . The dumplings were so delicious 😍
I have had a package of rice paper in my pantry for awhile…. Finally a recipe that felt easy and satisfying to make me break them out! This was a fun and fast recipe that is so delicious. I will be making it again and again, for easy weeknight dinners and extravagant dinner parties. Ty!
Really tasty dish!
Super easy to make, perfect balance between crunchy and chewy! All of my non-vegan family loved it and want me to make again ❤️
Absolutely amazing! So easy to make and delicious. Making them again asap
It’s super easy, simple, and delicious recipe. Definitely will make again. Thank you for sharing this idea, it helps me a lot. Following your next recipes 🥰🥰
these were so delicious! it was my first time using rice paper in a recipe and it turned out great. i’m happy i used 2 papers per dumpling because they kept everything in place. was an easy recipe too for a beginner like me! thank you ❤️
I fell in looooove with this recipe. It was so easy to make and the crunchy and chewy texture is everything. I added some shiitake mushrooms, because I love them and it was just so satisfying. I'm gonna do them every week at least once. Way quicker then making a dumpling dough from scratch. Soo yummy <3
These were so delicious, easy and fun to make ! I added some sautéed mushrooms and hot peppers for a bit of spice and they came out great! Huge hit in my house, can’t wait to make them again!
Thanks for the recipe! I tried it this week, the result is delicious! thanks again
Love this recipe. Takes such little time and is quite healthy and honestly I think I like them better than dumplings. This definitely going to be my go to.
My new comfort food! Loved it ❤️❤️❤️
just made this and taste geeewwd 😛 and i also added some chopped corriander and it really enhanced the flavor! thanks lisa!
Such a delicious recipe
I also gave to family members that are not a fan of vegan cooking and they loved it
The Savory Tooth Fairy says
Amazing! I used this recipe for my Food Tech class. Instead of cabbage, which I didn't have, I used grated parsnip and it still tasted just as good! My family is mostly vegan, the only thing we eat non-vegan being free of cruelty eggs, and everyone loved them! The first two that I cooked didn't go so well, but that was my fault as I had the heat up too high, because of this, I accidentally melted the spatula I was using lmao, but started again and they turned out amazing. For the dipping sauce I mixed the soy sauce and rice vinegar together, and added a hint of maple syrup to make it the slightest bit sweeter and it was a great taste. (I didn't have any Rayu Chili Oil, so I used sesame oil)
Thank you lovely Lisa for the recipe x
I now make sure I always have rice paper on hand. I made this twice in a row.
So easy to make, filling and really tasty! I added some gochujang in the dipping sauce for more spice hihi!
This is the first time I made anything vegan and OH MY GOD. It was SOOO GOOOOOOD! Super flavourful. While I was mixing the filling ingredients in the bowl I asked my husband to have a smell of how yummy it was and he couldn’t stop smelling it. It’s fresh, easy and healthy. Definitely going to be a regular on my list of meals for meal planning fast dinners.
Leena Chen says
Have you tried freezing them? Just wondering if i can make large batches and freeze for my kids weekday breakfast and pan fry a bit.
Didi schaller says
Ingenious use of rice paper! Simple to use and filling is delicious too!!
They’re so good and an easy recipe to follow 🥺🥺 highly recommend these dumplings
Elle Gerard says
This recipe is delicious! However, my dumplings never get nice and crispy brown. What oil is best to use? I just use vegetable oil, but is there a better one to use? Also, how long does it take for each side to brown? Any suggestions to help me improve my dumplings would be so appreciated!
Debbie Ainsworth says
Hi I made these last nite. Tho it took me longer to make than your times 🙃 they were sooo good. I have a few questions tho. What kind of oil did you use for frying? I used EVOO and I covered the pan but the my were very greasy. I had to put on paper towels (which of course didn’t turn out well 🙄). I cant wait to make them again and perfect them!!! I’ll post pic on Insta!!
Ruhi Andre says
This recipe was so fun to make and tastes amazing! This will def be on repeat to make at home.
About how many dumplings does this make? I want to serve this for four people and I'm not sure if I should double the recipe. Thanks!
These were absolutely amazing! Super tasty and easy to follow recipe! I made a ton of the filling and it lasted me a few days!
I'm Brazilian, I made this recipe and it was wonderful! Thanks for sharing with us!

I made this today for the first time and it was so easy and delicious! Can’t wait to make the Wagyumelon Katsu next! ☺️
Laura C says
I love this recipe! I always wanted to try to make dumplings myself, and this recipe with the rice paper was great to put together!
It was so good! Love how it was both chewy and crispy

This is the first recipe I tried from Lisa! Thank goodness for instagram reels! This was so yummy and I still feel the benefits of being healthy! Really fun to make!!! Also, learned how to make a sauce that I usually have to get from the store hehe!
Super easy to make and so delicious!!! Great alternative to people who are GLUTEN FREE! They were so crispy and the filling with the dipping sauce is just perfect!
Really enjoyed making this recipe
Wouldn't have thought of using rice paper for dumplings but it works! Such a creative recipe and really good too! Easy to prepare and really tasty.
This recipe is so delicious !Thank you so much for it. Highly recommend !
Tatum Harris says
This recipe has changed my lunch game. I fry up the ingredients before wrapping them in rice paper but that’s just because I love the taste of fried tofu. I kept leftover mix for two days in an airtight container and made multiple batches with it! So thankful for such an easy, healthy and tasty vegan recipe, you’ve got to try it!
hi! these look amazing! are they freezer friendly? i’d love to make a bigger batch of them at once. if so, would it be best to freeze before or after pan frying?
Easy and quick!! I hadn't tofu so I tried without it, and I cooked a little bit the filling. Next time I'll try the original recipe! Soo good!
Claudia Madrigal Renzo says
I am completely obsessed with this recipe. Even though my family is not vegan, they tried it and asked me to cook it 2 days in a row 💛 thank you so much for sharing, I am looking forward to trying every other recipe ✨
That's a great idea! I have never pan fried my rice rolls, they looks delicious! I’ll try it soon!
Ayushi Shah says
Officially obsessed!!!! This recipe is so simple and delicious and I love the flavours. Made it for my relatives and they loved it too!! Especially good for someone who is the worst at making dumpling wrappers 😅
Super quick, full of flavour and nutritious ingredients! I had them two days in a row.
I Made this, so yummy
Nina Cheek says
Oh my goodness was this recipe everything I ever wanted! This rice paper chewiness is so satisfying and also very simple to make for someone who might have difficulty making dumplings. These really hit the spot for texture and taste. I’ve already made these 3 times since the recipe was posted and my non vegan family and boyfriend raved about how delicious they were. Thanks for another great recipe!
Just made this yesterday and everything about it was delicious 🤤. The filling is so good! I was eating the leftovers of it cold today. A wicked good and healthy recipe that’s easy to make and very filling!!
Don Gibbons says
After seeing this recipe pop up all over social media, I had to give it a try because i was craving dim sum or some iteration of it & THIS WAS IT!!
The recipe was super easy & quick to follow along and make.
The dumplings were crispy on the outside and had that slight chew that any good dumpling has from being steamed or fried! PERFECT SNACK!
This works really well in the air-fryer. Spray lightly with oil, bake at 400 for 10 -12 min, flipping halfway through. No stove splatter, and it avoids the tearing problem -- I only used one sheet of rice paper per dumpling. Great recipe!
I've been scrolling through all the comments to see if anyone had used an air fryer. I've made this recipe several times and love it. I asked for and got an air fryer for Christmas specifically for this. Thanks for the instructions!! Can't wait to try it.
Love these dumplings 🥟❤️
This recipe is a keeper! Great way to use rice paper.
Wow this was so good! Super fast and easy to make. Never knew you could pan fry rice wraps!
Easy and tasty!
So simple, quick and tasty 💚
Was super easy and delicious!!!
We added some mushrooms to half of the filling, loved that too!
thanks for sharing 🙂
I loved how easy & flavorful the filling was to make. I made a large batch by doubling ingredients so I could make enough for my family. I used two rice papers per dumpling as recommended but found 1 rice paper held up pretty well. I put some of the dumplings in a pan & some in the air fryer, both were delicious but I loved when they got crispier on the stove.
Id make this again!
This tasted really good! I‘m an absolute beginner when it comes to cooking but this recipe was super easy and delicious! 🥰🤩
Super easy and delicious to make! Took me a little while to get the hang of the rice paper (and make sure I’d soaked it for long enough but not too long!), but I got the hang of it in the end! Thank you so much for the yummy recipe, Lisa ☺️
So simple and tasty!
This recipe was simple and tasty! Pan-frying the rice paper wrappings gives it such a nice crunch that contrasts so well with its chewiness. Loved it.
Sooo good..and also so easy to make ..I'm never making dumplings from scratch again🙈💖💖...
Sarah P says
These are the easiest dumplings I’ve ever made! Fun to make with kids, too. I used brown rice paper and it worked the same. Definitely stick to the recommended 2 Tbsp per wrapper, though! I overstuffed a couple and they didn’t cook through as well (and one of them burst, oops).
We had a delicious meal !! Thank a bunch for the recipe !! 😊
Tried them yesterday and will definitely become a go-to recipe in my everyday diet!
My kids love making and eating these! So quick and easy and delicious! Am always grateful for your healthy and quick kid-friendly recipes!
I've made these several times now with different veggies, and it's delicious! Would definitely recommend using half of a large rice paper sheet (twice) or a smaller diameter. This way they won't break while you're eating because of weight haha.
I really loved the idea of simply using rice paper for a dumpling, because it is so easy and fast to do!
I made these several times with different fillings and they turned out great
Rachel M says
This has become a go-to weeknight dinner or lunch! I really love the idea of using rice papers this way! Truly a genius recipe
Paola Rivas says
This was such a joy to make! Dumplings tend to be very time consuming for me and sometimes I don't have access to certain ingredients, but this one was everything I needed. The rice paper has such a similar texture to regular dumpling wrapper, with a crispy outside and a chewy inside. The filling is great as well, not only does take my fear of eating under cooked filling away, it's so yummy and easy to make!
Also is a great power meal for busy college students like me!! Made a bunch and saved them in the refrigerator!
First time trying RICE PAPER DUMPLING!! Definitely will make this again!!
Followed the recipe to heart and it was just delicious. We had some left over filling after we ran out of rice paper and that was lovely just by itself. I’m a student so I’m happy it was surprisingly cheap and speedy. Will defo make again!
The filling is delicious enough to eat just like that by itself but perfect when you roll it up and crisp it! Delicious!
I just recently started my vegan journey and your blog is on reason why it has been joy not a time of limitations. This recipe is soo quick and easy. I love the Idea. Thank you for making this journey so fun.
I tried this recipe out for fun and because i wanted to start cooking with tofu again! I used to hate tofu so much but this recipe really made me so happy I want to try it more often! Thank you so much for sharing this 🥰
So you don’t need to cook the tofu or anything right, just mix it with the other veggies and that’s it? Does it gather taste from that mixture with the sauces in etc? Cuz I know tofu alone is bland like that :(. Thank you!
Lisa Kitahara says
Yes no need to cook 🙂
I love this recipe, the texture of them is the perfect balance of chewy and crispy! The filling is packed with flavour and they are so delicious, I will definitely be making them again.
Loved this recipe! Was so easy, fast and delicious! I added some other vegetables inside, it was fire! Had my husband asking me for more 😝
Auch a brilliant idea👏🏻😍
I used some leftover veggie and Tofu stir fry as filling and served the dumplings with a sweet chili Tahini dipping sauce. Delicious!
Oh it was so yummy! I modified it slightly by adding some gochujang to the tofu and sautéing it because my brother and I love spicier food 🥵 I loved the texture of the rice paper especially since I only used to use them for summer rolls. Highly recommend her recipes even for non-vegans!!
The dumplings are super easy to make and so tasty. Even my picky nephew liked them 😋
This recipe was so delicious, I love the texture of them!
Made the Rice Paper Dumplings several times! Not only easy but fun to make with the kids. They loved the wrapping part. The taste was like we brought the Dim Sum experience at home! You did again Lisa!
Delicious and easy recipe to follow! Love the filling! Double wrapping is such a great idea to keep it from tearing.
I LOVE this dish!! This is 100% Vegan and gluten free. I stuffed it in Natto and cabbage and served with coconut Thai curry sauce. it was so delicious!!
absolutely delicious!! so crispy, easy, and fast!! perfect for all dietary restrictions, and easy to adapt for taste. only issue is that theyre always gone too soon 😉
Made this several times now and love how easy it is to adapt and add whatever veggies I have in the fridge. (Shiitake mushrooms are my favourite addition.) This is a fave.
The Rx Mummy says
I love this recipe. It's so easy. Never knew i could make dumplings ever. Thanks for sharing and making it happened. And not to forget, its soooo delicious 😍
Amazing, easy recipe. I adjusted some filing ingredients but one if the beauty of it is that it
it's easy to do. I would definitely recommend frying it on hight heat and eating it straight away to keep the crispiness.
First recipe I’ve tried from Lisa and honestly so extremely happy I found it! I made a ton for my family and I and we LOVED it! It’s a super versatile recipe, we added the veges we had in the fridge and made it work! I’ll be making this again ASAP!!!
I have tried these 4 times now and I am absolute obsessed with them. There are so many possibilities of variating the filling but it comes out gorgeous every single time! Also tried them with peanut sauce or sweet chili sauce. These are just awesome!
My new favorite to make, I’ve never made dumplings before but this was so easy and delicious 🤤
Was a big hit in my house!!! Thank you so much for sharing
Tried this recipe last night and it was sooo easy and yummy! A great way to use all my leftover veggies 😊
I love this method of making some quick dumplings. I haven't mastered cooking these yet. They still stick to my pan when I cook them and oil pops everywhere (-.-) sigh...
Nevertheless, I really enjoy this recipe. For my filling, I made a Peking ravioli style filling and they come out amazing everytime.
I cant get over how easy and delicious these dumplings are. They taste very similar to veggie gyoza at a Japanese restaurant. I will definitely be making them again!!
So easy to make and absolutely delicious 😋 will definitely be making again and checking out some more recipes!!
Ummmm this is the easiest most delicious recipe... ever? If you're not making this right this second, you're really messing up.
So easy, so packed with flavour, so chewy, so crispy. Just perfection!
This recipe was so delicious and simple to make! Can’t wait to try more recipes!
So easy to make, and it tastes so yummy!! My boyfriend loves it.
Never thought I would make homemade dumplings but Lisa has made it so easy and possible. I also liked it because you can make the filling however salty you like while store-bought ones are already seasoned and salty.
These were really fun to make and the flavor is delicious. My dumplings definitely fell apart though, and I’m wondering if it was because I did all the wrapping first and then did the frying after. Maybe they sat too long and got too soft? In any case I’m not even mad - I threw that mess in a bowl and devoured it!
Alessandra Shanti says
simple and fun to prepare! the recipe was appreciated by everyone at dinner <3 i love Lisa
these were so delicious and easy!!! another one I’ll be making on the regular 😋😋
Wesley L. says
Easy and quick! I made this on a week night as an appetizer/snack and everyone enjoyed it. I had to make more as these were gone so fast!
I love this recipe! I sprayed some oil on them and air fried the dumplings for a more spring roll texture. Thanks for the ideas and constant inspo on Instagram!
Emily French says
Low effort, high reward recipe. These came out DELICIOUS! Highly highly recommend you make these. 🙏
This is a satisfying dish that’s so fun to make! I love the texture of the fried rice paper - crispy and chewing 🤤. It’s a perfect gluten free vegan dish that I would want to share with my friends.
Anyone know what’s the best way to reheat it? I assume that the air fryer would do the trick? I still don’t have one yet.
This is a satisfying dish that’s so fun to make!! I love the texture of the fried rice paper - so crispy and chewing. 🤤 I’m definitely going to make again.
How do you guys reheat the leftovers? Air fryer??
This looks so good! What a great make ahead appetizer to make before a party!
Thanks for sharing! How far ahead of time can I make it?
I really liked these but also curious if anyone has tried in qn air fryer?
I swapped out the soy for sweet soy in the dipping sauce because I like mine sweeter!
Also wondering how many dumplings are in 1 serve in the nutrition details listed? The recipe says for 1 serve and so does the nutritional details but given there are 70-80 calories alone for the rice paper per dumpling so not sure what a serve is.
I recreated this recipe as I've recently went gluten free and wow my mind was BLOWN! Thank you for creating a recipe that was so easy, there was barely any prep time as the rice paper is already made. The crispyness was delicious and I loved the combination of the veggies! I cannot wake to make this again, and try out more recipes. I'm drooling just thinking about it
So yummy! Can't wait to make these again!
Marie Lou says
The double layer of paper rice made the difference with the crispy 🤩
These were so easy to make! The prep and cook time was super convenient and simple and the result delicious! I was inspired to make these more often and try with different fillings (fridge dump kinda thing). Definitely making again!
So good!! The rice paper gives a really nice and chewy texture for the dumpling and is delicious!
Vanshika Arya says
OMG! I tried making these and was making it for three days straight!!
these were so delicious and easy to make <3 <3
Definitely making them again (and again and again)!!
Amazing! Ive made it twice and drool!!
Very delicious and simple recipe :). A must try especially if you want quick dumplings.
This was super tasty! I added too much sesame oil tho so they were a bit oily but tasty nevertheless!
So easy to make and delicious!!! I made more of the filling to have over some rice tomorrow, yum!
Absolutely loved this one! Make sure you don’t let the wrappers sit in water for two long or they’ll fall apart more easily.
Made this recipe twice now, soo good. First time I pan fried them but used a bit too much oil so it was too oily for my taste since the paper soaked it up.. second time I tried baking them in the oven at 450 for 15 on each side, this time just spraying a bit of avo oil on them, and tho they were delicious, still could of been crispier. I’m guessing an air fryer would give me the desired texture but I’ll have to wait t’ill I get me one of those lol amazing recipe! 🙂
Shannon Pitzer says
I made these rice paper dumplings as full-on heavy entree sizes filled with vegan cream cheese, sautéed tofu sticks, broccoli, and corn, and it was phenomenal. The rice paper held wonderfully with the double layers, and the filling was perfectly cooked. It held together when I dipped it upside down into my sauce, and they even travelled well when I flew with them I. Tupperware containers. It takes 5 mins to make these; and these are a new low-calorie every-week meal of mine.
Easiest recipe! Loved the filling and was able to put my own twist on it as it was super easy to adjust to my liking!
this recipe is PERFECT if you want dumplings but don't want to go through the trouble of the traditional dough and shaping each one!
i loved this recipe, the filling was so yummy, i ate the leftover straight after cooking it a bit
i also added shredded zucchini & i made the dip with black japanese vinegar and it was sooooo good
i love the crispy exterior with the soft interior!! definitely making again soon
alicia sanchez says
A brilliant recipe! I made these dumplings yesterday- I followed the directions exactly (with the exception of adding fish sauce to the filling (look, I am who I am). I especially appreciated the pro tip about soaking the rice paper. Mine came together quickly, browned beautifully, and were delicious! And you should have heard the crunch on them! I will 100 percent be making these again. Probably tonight.
There is something super satisfying about these dumplings with the crunchy and chewy exterior of the rice paper. My boyfriend and I crushed these dumplings in a matter of minutes! I substituted the tofu for impossible meatballs because it was I had on hand but everything else was perfect. Will definitely make again and such a good recipe to use what you have on hand!
These are sooooo delicious 😋 I’ll definitely be making them again. Such a great recipe!! My favourite way to prepare rice paper is now this... Lisa you’re so amazing!💗
Rebeka Ross says
I loved these! I tried them with salon and porc, they are so yummy. You can make them to your preference and they are so quick to make. Family favorite! Thank you 🙂
Rebeka Ross says
I absolutely loved this recipe. We have tried it with salmon and ground porc, both were amazing. My family loves that we can make them to our taste. Thank you so much 🙂
So good! Am currently on a rice paper wrapper kick because of this recipe. Made it to a T and wouldn't change a thing. Don't even need to double wrap if you are careful...
This was so delicious!! The filling is amazing and the texture of the pan fried rice paper is so crunchy! Would highly recommend!
So. Dang. Good!
Nancy Ellis says
I love this recipe it was really satisfying! Even my dad who is a tofu skeptic loved it! Has anyone tried to make them in advance? I'm wondering if I could make them the night before and fry them for dinner the next day? Thank you for the great recipe!
This was really tasty! Just note to myself that you should eat them as soon as they’re done, if you don’t they’ll loose their crispyness >_<‘ (I was make multiple small dishes) and personally I didn’t think they work good as a lunchbox, maybe if you have an air fryer or something! But they tasted good!
Saoirse Yuan says
So good, I eat this at least once a week now!!
I’ve always been intimidated to make dumplings or spring rolls because I felt like it was too advanced for a beginner like me. Then I made these easy dumplings following this recipe and I am no longer that girl. Turned out great except when I tried to pan fry them the wrapper broke and I enjoyed a deconstructed dumpling like Lisa did on her first try. I then put them in the airfryer and they turned out perfectly crispy! Will be making these again for sure.
Simple but amazing recipe! I loved it so much!
Thank you again for your recipes!
Simple but amazing recipe! I loved it so much!
Thank you again for your recipes!
Nicole North says
Easy. Crunchy. Chewy. Tasty. These dumplings are everything and a bag of chips. And you can air fry them which was so easy and they kind of poofed up on top and were deliciously chewy on the bottom. Definitely a repeat recipe! Lisa you are a genius in the kitchen!
I’ve made these twice now and they are even better the second time around! Absolutely amazing recipe!
These were soooo good and so easy to make! You definitely have to double wrap because doing just one layer usually rips a bit but they were so good and filled my craving for dumplings 100%
Vedika Makhija says
Can we just use one rice paper or is it important to do a second layer?
Lisa Kitahara says
Two layers or they may break
Jaclyn L. says
Made this twice so far and I completely love it. I love the contrasting crunchy veggies with the chewy rice paper. It definitely hit the spot especially when I wanted something quick to make and eat. I have to work on my wrapping technique though but other than that LOVE <3
Absolutely loved making and eating these. A simple recipe and lovely flavors. The crunchy outside and chewy texture of the rice paper are just so delicious. I will definitely be making these again and will play with different fillings.
You’ve probably seen these in a bunch of places now but they’re done perfectly here, and this recipe is so simple to follow. Don’t let wrapping these scare you - anyone can do it and they’re great!!
Caitlin McNamara says
Loved this recipe! Made it for New Year’s Eve with my husband; it was easy and so delicious! This is definitely going to be a staple in our house - can’t wait to try other veggie combos!
Andrea Lázaro Bustos says
So delicious and easy to make! I will definitely cook this again, i love it!
This was sooo yummy! My kids absolutely loved them. Super easy & fast recipe. They refrigerate well if you gently sear them before storing.
Tina Nguyen says
Delicious and easy to make!! I didn't read the recipe very thoroughly so I stir fired the vegetable mixture first and then food processed it. Despite the mistake, it ended up tasting delicious! I recommend waiting for the optimal hot oil heat for the brown crisp and backing very far away when putting it in so not to get oil burned.
Thanks for the delicious recipe!
This was SO GOOD. Not only was it incredibly easy to prep, but even my non-vegan family members were pretty amazed with the tofu in there and the flavor! Such simple ingredients, so adaptable, and such a fun process. Love love love!
Just made these yesterday and it was a huge success, super easy, and everyone loved them!
Will do again and again for sure 🖤
Thanks for the recipe 🖤🖤🖤
Avanthi B says
Legit AMAZING. I made some "lazy" modifications by using precut salad (a Coleslaw mix) and this was legit soooooo good. It was crunchy yet chewy and absolutely delish!
Such an easy and delicious recipe! I made this for dinner for my family and we had such a fun time cooking together. The filling can be made adjusted for whatever you have at home so we added mushrooms and celery and it was very tasty. The rice paper rolls were easy to handle and fried up very nicely. We used a bigger size of rice paper rolls by accident and while it still worked well, it was a big harder to eat! Enjoy 😋
What kind of oil do you use in the pan? Vegetable oil?
Lisa Kitahara says
Any neutral oil!
Juliana C says
I had been meaning to try these ever since I saw the Instagram reel of them, and finally got around to it a few days ago. I love anything dumpling-related and I love how these are a switch up from regular dumplings and are unique too! The filling is super aromatic and the texture of the rice paper is crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Super yummy, fun, and easy to make 🙂
Susan G says
The whole family loves this recipe. Question for you: Though I looked through your shopping lists, I didn't see a recommendation for a frying pan, such as the one you use for this recipe. Mine is a mess and it's time for a new one! If you have a recommendation, please share it. Thanks!
I made these but I did something wrong g abs they weren’t crispy. Any tips?
I pan fried them on medium/high heat in oil until golden brown on both sides.
They were pretty solid when I took them out of the pan but once I started eating them they weren’t crispy and it was pretty messy.
I did use ground pork instead of tofu.
These are so tasty and so quick to make! Especially great if you have leftover dumpling filling to use up. I was going to try making these in an air fryer but they came together so quickly in the pan (about 3 min per side) that it doesn't seem necessary
I LOVE dumplings, but as my two little ones soak up all my time and energy, I really don’t have time to make any. Or so I thought until you showed me this solution. THANK YOU, you’re a lifesaver! Also thank you for teaching me how to properly deal with rice paper - I was over-soaking them in hot water for years. 🤦🏻♀️
Really easy and tasty recipe which can be adjusted to taste ! Maybe next time I'll ad some black mushrooms to the filling ☺️ Thank you for feeding us with new ideas every week 🥳❤️
This filling was so flavourful and umami! I added a bit more chopped carrot and popped the rice paper rolls in the airfryer at 200C for around 10 mins, flipping it over midway through. Really good, though I’d probably add more filling next time because it’s addictive!
These are so good!! I fried then air fried to keep them super crispy, thank you!!
Addicting! I added slivers of pickled ginger to the filling.....so good!
Loved these! So easy and delicious. Will make again 💖💖💖
This was one of the first recipes I made when I started vegan cooking. It was so easy and delicious I really enjoyed every part of it and felt so encouraged that I could do it! I’m now a vegan chef and constantly come back here for fab dinner and lunch recipes☺️
Komorebi Trail says
Thank you for sharing this recipe. I made a huge batch of filling over the weekend, froze it and ate dumplings throughout the week with different sauce fillings. LOVED IT!
Thank you Lisa for sharing your recipes with us.
Love following you on IG 😀
Cori Wheaton says
These were SO easy and SO good. I tried both the pan frying technique and air frying technique, and I prefer the air frying! It allowed me to only use 1 rice paper wrapper instead of 2 since I didn’t have to flip them. I set the air fryer to 400 degrees for 20 minutes and they were insanely crispy.Thank you so much for this recipe!!
Hi there! Can you freeze these? Also, can you soak all the rice paper at once or do you need to do each one individually? Curious because i want to make a big batch! Thank you!
Lisa Kitahara says
I think they would rip / get soggy if frozen, sorry! 🙁
Super simple to make and also really yummy. They also make great leftovers.
So quick and easy to make these are genius!
Tammy Nguyen says
such a classic and easy to follow recipe!!!!
