Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan, heat the 1 tbs sesame oil and 1 tbs vegetable oil and sauté the garlic and ginger for 1 minute of medium heat.
  2. Add the shiitake, cabbage, chives, spring onion and tofu. Turn the heat to high and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the soy sauce and the salt and continue to stir over high heat for a further 2-3 minutes until the excess liquid has been absorbed. Sprinkle in the corn flour and mix quickly. Transfer to a dish to cool.
  3. Put a teaspoon of the vegetable mixture in the centre of each wonton wrapper and moisten the edges of the wrapper with water. Fold to make a moon shape, making a few pleats to seal.
  4. Heat the 2 tsp sesame oil in a saucepan, then put in 10-12 gyoza. Cook both sides for 2-3 minutes over medium heat until well browned. Pour 1/4 cup water over the wontons and cook covered for 2-3 minutes until the liquid has been absorbed. If necessary, remove the lid and shake the pan until all excess liquid has been absorbed. Transfer to a dish and garnish with chives. Repeats with remaining Gyoza. Serve with your preferred dipping sauce.
