Method

  1. Wash and dry all veggies with a tea-towel. Process all veggies except ginger. Process coriander last.
  2. Grate ginger.
  3. In a small mixing bowl mix ginger, sake, sesame oil and potato starch to form a paste.
  4. In a large bowl combine veggie mix, potato paste and quinoa.
  5. To make dumplings: put a teaspoon amount on the pastry, use a bit a water on the edges and squeeze the pastry together.
  6. To cook the Gyoza: Mix 1 ½ tspn flour with 200ml water and set aside. Grill gyoza in a frying pan on 1 side, then turn and add the flour/water mix. Close the lid and steam on low.
  7. Once cooked remove lid until water evaporates. This leaves them crispy. Drizzle with sesame oil and place on a serving dish.
  8. Serve with Vinegar/Soy Dipping Sauce. 1 part Rice vinegar to 1 part Soy Sauce or vary proportions to taste.

 

There are a few steps here but it’s sure worth it! I usually make at least 90 and freeze them. Best frozen before they are cooked. They are fast to defrost and easy to cook up!

Japanese Gyozas are also Healthy, delicious, vegan, glutenfree
