We've already covered vegetarian and gluten free recipes, so this week we're teaching you how to make gyoza the vegan way! It's really simple and a delicious option for catering for vegans in a dinner party situation. Meat eaters will love these too! 

 

You will need

2.5 cups of flour

1.25 cups of water

A pinch of salt

1 pack large shiitake mushrooms

2 spring onions 

1 tsp chilli 

1 tsp garlic 

2-3 carrots

3 tbsp soy sauce

2 tsp sriracha

method 

Mix together the flour, water and salt to make a dough. 

 Knead for 10 minutes as the dough needs to produce a good gluten structure.

Take a saucepan and heat a little sesame oil. Gently fry the chilli, garlic and chopped spring onions.

When golden, add the finely chopped mushrooms and carrots  and fry until softened. Allow to cool.

meanwhile flour a board very well then roll out the dough as thinly as you can. Cut into circles and pour a little bowl of water ready for construction!

Place 2 tsp of the vegetable mix in the center of each dough circle. Dab water around the edges of the dough then fold together to make a dumpling.

steam the dumplings for about 10 minutes.

create a dipping sauce by mixing together the sriracha and soy together.
