Recently I wrote about the health benefits of bone broth. I included one of my favourite Chinese dumpling recipes which also incorporated bone broth. This recipe was such a hit, I thought this week I would share a couple of my other favourite dumpling recipes. Since stocking the XHC range of dumplings in store, I have become a real fan of dumplings and have been experimenting with lots of different recipes. I also love the fact I can also incorporate bone broth which of course adds an extra level of nutrition to the recipe. Below are two of my recent recipe discoveries. Enjoy!
