Tofu Gyoza [Vegan]


Cooking Time




  • 1 packet round wonton wrappers
  • 1 container of firm tofu
  • half an onion, diced
  • 1 knob of ginger, minced
  • 1 garlic glove, minced
  • 1/4 cup of sliced wood ear mushrooms, reconstituted in warm water
  • 2 oz somen noodles, cooked according to package instructions
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  1. Except for the wonton wrappers, in a bowl, mix everything together. you want the mixture to be clumpy, not a wet mess. the cooked somen noodles will act as a binder
  2. With the wonton wrappers, put a small amount, about a tsp in the middle. Wet the edges with water, fold over. You want the gyoza to sit up so shape them to be able to sit up but make sure the seams stick
  3. Heat up a pan with a bit of sesame oil. Put the gyoza in a fan-like pattern in the pan, fry them until the bottoms are nice and crispy. Pour in 1/4 cup of water and cover, being careful of splatters. Steam for about 5 minutes and remove lid, making sure all the water has evaporated
