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