These vegan steamed buns are rich flavored with hoisin and 5 spices, stuffed with a mix of mushrooms and sweet potato. The flavor is sweet and salty at the same time, with a little sour hint of the vinegar. A perfect weekend recipe to make with the kids, and let me tell you: kids will love the fluffy bread with the surprise inside.
In a big bowl dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
Sift together the flour and cornstarch, and add it to the yeast mixture along with the sugar and oil. Kneed with your hands or the mixture until an elastic ball is formed, takes about 15 minutes.
Spread a small amount of oil on the dough ball, and cover the bowl with a damp cloth. Let rest for 2 hours, in the meantime prepare the filling.
