Tianjin: A mouthful of “Jinweishu” celebrates the Chinese New Year with great success
Eating dumplings during the New Year is a traditional custom in northern China. The shape of the dumplings is like an ingot, which symbolizes prosperity and prosperity, as well as reunion and harmony. In Tianjin, Jinwei vegetarian dumplings are local specialty dumplings with vegetarian fillings. They are an essential delicacy on the table during the Spring Festival.
Tianjin people love to eat dumplings. Dumplings are eaten during festivals and festivals, and friends and family gather together to order a portion of dumplings. When I walked into this restaurant in Tianjin, almost every table ordered dumplings. During the Spring Festival, a must-eat is the vegetarian dumplings.
Jinwei vegetarian dumplings are a local specialty in Tianjin. All fillings are vegetarian, and there must be at least eight main ingredients and five condiments. The necessary raw materials include bean sprouts, coriander, cabbage, red vermicelli, white vermicelli, dried spices, gluten, etc. Each filling is cut into small pieces, and the combination is brightly colored and nutritionally balanced. The bean sprouts taste crisp and refreshing, and the coriander has a unique taste. Tianjin’s local fermented bean curd and sesame paste are used as the main seasonings, mixed with sesame oil. The flavor of fermented bean curd overpowers the taste of sesame paste. This is the soul of the taste of Jinweisu.
Because of the large number of raw materials, fine cutting, and careful sauce ratio, it is not easy to make Jinweishu with a pure taste. Many businesses have taken a fancy to the business opportunities and prepared multiple choices for consumers.
Headquarters reporter Xie Min: The steaming dumplings are out of the pot. The fermented bean curd and red pink skin in the filling make the dumplings slightly red, which also means that our lives will be prosperous in the coming year. A bite of Jinweishu, this is the taste of Tianjin people during the Chinese New Year. Every household in Tianjin has its own secret recipe for Jinweisu, but no matter what the secret recipe is, it is the taste of the Chinese New Year and the taste of home.
