Japanese spring onion buns with steamed vegetables and quick Teriyaki dipping sauce.




Knead the ingredients for the dough together with 75 ml of warm water for 10 minutes until the mixture forms a smooth dough. Then cover the dough and leave in a warm place for 45 minutes to prove until it has doubled in size.


Cut the spring onions into thin rings.


Roll out the dough on a well-floured work surface into a rectangle approx. 1.5 mm thick. Then sprinkle the spring onions and salt over it and roll up gently.


Cut the rolled dough into 12 pieces. In each case, lay two pieces on top of each other, push down deep with a chopstick or the handle of a wooden spoon in the middle and across to the cut edge and then, using your hands, gently fold in the other direction so that it forms a fan shape.


Add 150 ml of water to the pizza pan and arrange the buns on the steaming unit with ample space in between them. Seal with the lid and cook for 8 minutes at 1,000 watt.


Cut the broccoli into florets and remove the stems of the sugar snap peas. Season the vegetables with salt. Add the vegetables to the buns in the Steam+ Pot and cook for a further 8 minutes.


Mix together all of the ingredients for the dipping sauce. Cut the radishes into thin slices, combine with the rice vinegar and rice syrup and leave to one side.


Sprinkle the buns and vegetables with sesame seeds and serve with the radishes and Teriyaki dipping sauce.
