Makes approximately 10 gyoza

These homemade vegetarian gyozas are surprisingly easy to make and seriously delicious (admittedly, slightly addictive). To create the green gyoza wraps, we’ve used a blend of spinach and antioxidant packed matcha powder.

If you are a little short on time, you can always cheat and purchase gyoza wrappers from specialty asian supermarkets. You can still sneak in the matcha goodness by adding a teaspoon or two to the filling!

Dough

  • 1 cup all purpose gluten free flour (+ extra for rolling)
  • 1-2 tsp matcha powder
  • 100 grams spinach leaves, blanched and pureed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 60 ml hot water

Filling

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil (+ extra to cook the gyozas)
  • 4 shallots, chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1/4 small cabbage, shredded
  • 1/4 cup water (add more if required)

Dipping sauce

  • 1/2 small chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice

Method

  • Firstly prepare the dough. Combine flour and matcha in a mixing bowl, mix and create a well in the centre.
  • Add blanched and pureed spinach, salt and gradually add hot water to form a dough. The mixture should be not too dry and not too sticky. Allow to rest for at least an hour.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Place oil in a heavy based pan and sauté shallots for approx. 5 minutes. Add ginger and tamari, stir for approx. 1 minute and then add cabbage and water.
  • Stir well, cover and allow to steam for approximately 20 minutes, adding water as required. Once cooked, set aside.
  • After the dough has rested for about an hour, using a floured board and floured rolling pin, roll out small circular (approx. 3 inch diameter) gyoza wraps.
  • Place a small amount of filling on the gyoza and pinch sides together.
  • Heat approx. 2 tsp sesame oil using a non-stick pan. Place gyoza on pan, and allow to cook for a 1-2 minutes. Then add 1/4 cup filtered water, cover and steam for a further 2-3 minutes (or until all liquid has evaporated). Repeat this process for remaining gyoza.
  • Transfer to serving dish and serve with dipping sauce and mint leaves. To prepare dipping sauce, simply combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl and mix well.
