When it comes to dumplings, it already does incorporate a lot of different fresh vegetables in the mix, so you are getting a variety with this all in one dish. You could always go for a side salad that has fresh fruit or vegetables in it. There is a wider variety of vegetables to choose from so you could steam a couple of your favorite on the side.
Different variations of potatoes such as mashed or baked potatoes could compliment it. Another possible option is garlic bread. I have found that cooking some rice such as jasmine rice is a good side to serve with it as well!
I personally like to cut up a rotisserie chicken that I picked up from the store to save me a bit of time and effort. And you can also chop your veggies ahead of time too, so when it’s time to pull dinner together you can have it ready in a snap!
