Miso Donuts

  • b

Does any one have a recipe for miso donuts? A vegan yum cha restaurant in Sydney called Bodhi used to make them but not any more. They are basically savory donuts with shaped like a round cinnamon twirl but with miso swirled inside instead of cinnamon.

      I think it means "drinking tea" It's a another way of saying Dim Sum. Not being Chinese, that's my take on it.

        Yum Cha is Cantonese for "Drinking Tea".
        It is the way they refer to what we Western Devils call Dim Sum (the items that one eats for "yum cha", which means literally "dot-heart" suggesting a small snack food.

        As for miso donuts...hmmm...I think I'll pass on that.
