PULLED OUMPH BAO BUNS

RECIPES/MEALS/BAO BUNS

Earlier this week I was gifted some lovely goodies in a Veganuary Drop. I used the Pulled Oumph in these bao buns - and they turned out so delicious !⁣ The pulled Oumph has an amazing texture, it’s saucy and it’s so easy to cook - definitely a winner in my books.

MAKES: PREP TIME: COOK TIME:

6-8 Bao Buns 2 hours 30 min 20 minutes

FOR THE FILLING:

1 packet pulled Oumph

some chopped red cabbage ⁣

Thinly sliced cucumber ⁣

coriander⁣

2 tbsp of sweet chili sauce

a squeeze of lime

FOR THE BAO BUNS:

2 cups of all purpose flour ⁣

1 cup of corn starch ⁣

5 tbsp caster sugar ⁣

1 tsp instant yeast ⁣

2 1/2 tsp baking powder ⁣

3/4 cup warm water ⁣

1/4 cup vegetable oil ⁣

MAKE THE BUNS:

1. In a stand mixing bowl with a dough hook attachment combine the flour, corn starch, baking powder and sugar. ⁣

2. In a separate bowl combine the warm water, veg oil and yeast. ⁣

3. Once the yeast has activated (bubbles forming) add the wet mixture to the dry mixture. ⁣

4. Mix on medium speed until a wet dough forms (you may have to add a little bit more water). ⁣

5. Continue mixing on medium to knead the dough (around 7-10 minutes). ⁣

6. Once kneaded (and a smooth ball forms) remove from the mixer and knead a few times by hand. ⁣

7. Place back into the bowl, cover with a cloth and place in a warm spot to rise for 60-90 minutes until it doubles in size. ⁣

8. Once the dough has risen roll out until it is 1cm thick. ⁣

9. Then use an 8cm diameter cookie cutter to cut rounds from the dough. ⁣

10. Repeat until there is no dough left. ⁣

11. Fold each circle in half (tip: brush a bit to oil in between so they don’t stick) and roll lightly with a rolling pin then place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. ⁣

12. Cover with cloth and allow to rise again for 30 minutes. ⁣


MAKE THE FILLING:

13. Prepare the pulled Oumph by cooking it over medium heat on the stove and then slice the veggies. ⁣

14. Prepare the steamer basket. ⁣

15. Steam each bun in the steamer for 10-12 minutes until light and fluffy then remove. ⁣

16. Fill with the filling ingredients and enjoy ! ⁣
