The children and I prepare the dumplings ahead of time. It is a quick and easy crowd pleaser.
Pan fry the turkey sausage with oil, ginger, and garlic. NOT the pickled ginger. Set aside on a napkin to cool. Remove napkin and cut into fine pieces. Cut pickled ginger into tiny pieces put in a separate bowl. Mix the flour and water in a small cup or condiment bowl. The process of making the dumplings is fun for the children. With the back of a spoon spread a thin layer of what we call flour paste or glue, put a very small amount of the meat in the center, and add a few bits of the pickled ginger. Pinch the wrapper together just above the meat forming a small flower with the top corners and set on a plate. Continue until all the wrappers are used. Aproximately40-50 dumplings.
Put a tablespoon or so of oil in a hot soup pan. You will use high heat to begin and then reduce to simmer when water is added and boiling. Add ginger, garlic and carrots. Stir till carrots are glazed, 1-3 minutes. Add the broth or water and boulion. Then add the greens and return to a simmer near boiling. Drop the dumplings in one by one and simmer for 7 minutes. Just before serving toss in the green onions.
