Veggie Momos

How incredible do these Veggie Momos look??? Though we definitely have a sweet tooth here at Creative Nature we are always on the look out for new, exciting savoury dishes to try and these Momos definitely fit that criteria. The best thing about this recipe (apart from how incredibly delicious they look) is that although it may seem like a lot of ingredients, the majority of things you probably already have in your kitchen somewhere! This recipe was kindly sent to us by @inspiredfoodoholic and we personally cannot wait to try it! Don’t forget you can always swap the soy sauce for amino sauce!
