Ikea also has vegetarian patrons in mind with their release of rice dumplings. Swapping out their standard meatballs for a plant-based alternative stuffed inside the glutinous rice, combined together with lion’s mane mushrooms and chestnuts ($46).
Giving a Swedish twist to the Chinese delight, Ikea's red bean paste rice dumpling ($39) contains lingonberry jam (typically served with their meatballs), to provide a light and refreshing take on the traditional dish. Stop by your nearest Ikea food hall to try one (or all) of their rice dumplings!
