It seems like the main celebration for almost every holiday in Henan province involves eating ‘dumplings.’ In English, these small, deliciously crafted treats are often referred to as pot-stickers. They are spectacular! But unfortunately 9 times out of 10 they are not vegan. Last December for the Winter Solstice my reading students spent an evening making jiaozi. They invited Marlie, Josh, Ben and I to the festivities and we really were made to feel at home. To my great surprise, they had prepared a vegan friendly filling for me, and as such I had the chance to eat jiaozi and enjoy the holiday along with everybody else. It was a lovely day. I will miss jiaozi. I will miss the students that really care.
