Edamame Gyoza With Dipping Sauce For Fiesta Friday #57

Ready to eat

Ready to eat

One of my favorite things to eat besides sushi in a Japanese restaurant is Gyoza. Traditional Gyoza has a minced pork filling, they are succulent and delicious and loaded with umami especially when dipped in the very flavorful dipping sauce. I made these vegetarian combining my love of edamame and gyoza. The edamame are steamed, then sautéed then mashed and used as filling for these lovely little dumplings. The dipping sauce is my version of the typical gyoza dipping sauce. I added some chili paste to give it a little kick, traditional dipping sauce contains something called Rayu, I don’t have it and it’s too cold to venture out looking for it so I adapted and made my own version using soy, mirin, a little sweetness and chili paste. It tastes wonderful with the gyoza.

I thought these little beauties would make a nice addition to the hottest party in town, Fiesta Friday #57. Angie@The Novice Gardener is hosting as always and this week her co hosts are everyone, as in all of us, how about that. We are all tasked with voting for the feature recipes.

Makes 18
Making the edamame filling and gyoza:
1 cup shelled edamame cooked
1 garlic clove minced
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
1 heaping teaspoon  light miso paste (It’s actually closer to 2 tsp)
splash of sriracha
season with salt and pepper to taste
18 wonton or gyoza wrappers
water to seal the edges
sesame oil and vegetable oil to fry the gyoza
Steam the edamame, I used the microwave following package directions, cooking for 3 minutes on high. Heat a small amount of vegetable oil in a skillet, add a splash of sesame oil add the garlic and saute until soft, add the edamame and continue to saute for approximately 1 minute, add 4 oz of water and cover, let cook until all the water evaporates. Remove from heat. Add all the ingredients to the food processor and pulse a few times to break up the soy bean and mix everything together. Test to make sure it will hold together, should be a rough paste. Note: I did not need to add salt, the miso paste added more than enough for me and the dipping sauce is salty from the soy sauce. So use salt gingerly if so desired.

Making the gyoza

Making the gyoza

Place the wrappers on your work surface. Have a cup of water and the filling ready. Place a tsp of the filling in the middle of the wrapper. Wet the edges of the wrapper all the way around and fold over, press on the edge using your thumb and index finger until you know that it’s bonded. Heat a skillet ( I used a 12 inch skillet) on high with a little sesame oil (Note: I used the same skillet I used for the edamame so it was already oiled a splash of sesame oil was all I needed), place the gyoza seam side standing up in the skillet. Brown them, it takes only about a minute or two. Now add about 2/3 cup water to the skillet and cover. Let cook for 4-5 minutes or until the water completely evaporates. Serve immediately.
Dipping sauce:
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons mirin
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar or honey
1 teaspoon chili paste (or more if you want it spicier)
1 teaspoon sesame seed oil
Whisk all ingredients together and serve with the gyoza

Yum1

Yum!

    These gyozas are to die for Suzanne!! I love vegetarian gyozas and potstickers. The use of edemame is super clever and awesome idea. I hope you have made enough to share ;). Because I am going to eat a lot….a lottttt!!!

    February 27, 2015
    • I made a lot plenty to go around but I’ll set some aside for you!!! Thank you so much, I actually like these much more than the usual pork. I love edamame.

      February 27, 2015
  3. Gyoza is one of my favorite things at a Japanese restaurant too. What a great fun, and tasty food for the fiesta! Hugs. Have a fabulous Fiesta Friday. 😀

    February 27, 2015
    • Me too Teagan, it’s the first thing I order when I eat Japanese. Thank you so much.

      February 27, 2015
  4. Yum, don’t these look great Suzanne. I love that they’re vegetarian. Happy Fiesta Friday 🙂

    February 27, 2015
  5. These look mouth-watering!! I love the shade of green of the filling.

    February 27, 2015
    • Thank you so much, me too I love green and thought these were so pretty!!

      February 27, 2015
  6. Gyoza and potstickers are so tasty. Making them with edamame is a great idea. Happy Fiesta Friday.

    February 27, 2015
  7. I loooove gyoza! plus i love edamame! They look so delicious that next time I make potstickers I’m inspired to try vegetarian!

    February 27, 2015
    • I have never had vegetarian pot stickers before, they are really really good. Thank you.

      February 27, 2015
  8. I’ve never heard of gyoza before, but these look absolutely amazing!

    February 27, 2015
    • They are really good, normally made with mince pork but I really liked this vegetarian version. Thank you so much.

      February 27, 2015
  9. I’ve never had gyoza before, but they look super yummy! That dipping sauce sounds awesome too 😀

    February 27, 2015
    • They are really good Michelle, next time you eat Japanese give them a go. Thank you so much.

      February 27, 2015
  10. These look amazing! I recently enjoyed edamame ravioli at a local restaurant. The edamame makes a creamy filling. I cannot wait to make these! Thank you and Happy Friday!

    February 27, 2015
  11. Hi Suzanne, I have been so busy during this few weeks, and I just came back from London. It ought to be have a pause now. Lovely to see your gyoza, I felt so hungry. They’re so good! 🙂

    February 27, 2015
  12. Both the gyoza and dipping sauce sound fabulous! The edamame filling has such a beautiful hue. 🙂 I imagine the addition of chili paste to the sauce provides just the right amount of heat!

    February 27, 2015
    • It was only a touch of chili paste that gave just the right amount of heat for me, I’m a wimp, Thanks so much Nancy.

      February 27, 2015
  13. What an interesting filing, Suzanne! I’ve never tried gyoza with beans filling; looks yum! 🙂

    February 27, 2015
    • Neither had I, always had with pork filling. They were great. Thank you so much Mila.

      February 27, 2015
  14. Aren’t gyoza one of the most delicious, best comfort foods?? I love them!! And the idea of using edamame is fantastic. These sound sublime!

    February 27, 2015
  15. Delicious! They look so good!

    February 27, 2015
  16. The filling and the dipping sauce sounds amazing! Nice flavors!!!

    February 27, 2015
  17. I love gyoza. I have a recipe for the traditional pork variety, but I love the idea of using edamame for a vegetarian version. I’ll have to try this next time 🙂

    February 27, 2015
    • It’s really good Natalie. I wasn’t sure how they would turn out but I loved them. Thank you.

      February 27, 2015
  18. Suzanne, they look to die for! I love the edamame filling idea! Just brilliant! 😍

    February 27, 2015
  19. I haven’t made gyoza for the longest time, and as a matter of fact, I was craving it. A great vegetarian/vegan version. I love it!

    February 27, 2015
    • Does my recipe sound ok to you, you are an expert on Japanese food. Thanks Fae, they are wonderful!!

      February 27, 2015
      • Actually, I was impressed! Especially, your dipping sauce is superb. Any food which depends on the dipping sauce to be complete, is at a mercy of the taste of the dipping sauce. Your gyoza is innovating and cleverly delicious. Nevertheless, it is the dipping sauce that can complement or damage the whole picture. Both are winning recipes!

        February 27, 2015
      • That means a lot coming from you Fae, thank you so much.

        February 27, 2015
  20. These look and sound so amazingggg Suzanne! I love that you made the filling with edamame and I love the sesame seeds and fresh ginger in the filling and that dipping sauce sounds to die for. This seriously has my mouth watering!!

    February 27, 2015
  21. I’ve always wanted to make homemade gyoza. What a wonderful recipe Suzanne. Love how they are meatless. Your dipping sauce recipe is lovely too!

    February 27, 2015
    • They are really delicious, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about no meat but I didn’t miss it at all. Thank you so much.

      February 27, 2015
  22. How cute are these edamame gyoza with that dipping sauce… was it easy to assemble? I love sushi too and sashimi. I would love to have a Japanese night at home, and this would be a wonderful addition, thanks for sharing the recipe 🙂 Gorgeous Suzanne.

    February 27, 2015
    • Thanks Loretta, it’s so easy. Simply boil or steam the shelled edamame, saute in garlic process with the other ingredients and put into a wonton or gyoza skin/wrap. Fry first then steam. Takes no time at all to make. The only thing you need to watch for is to make sure the bond is good and the wrap is sealed properly. It’s a wonderful dish.

      February 27, 2015
      • Thanks Suzanne, you’ve definitely got my interest piqued. 🙂

        February 27, 2015
  23. These look like a great vegetarian or even vegan option for delicious gyoza!

    February 27, 2015
    • They are so good Mary Frances, didn’t miss the meat filling at all. Thank you so much.

      February 27, 2015
  24. I could eat these any day of the week. I wish I had them now so I wouldn’t have to cook dinner girl lol. I love this dish.

  25. Yum! Love gyoza (or jiaozi) and Edamame and would really like to make these… thanks for posting! 🙂

    February 27, 2015
    • Is that another name for the dish or another way of spelling? They are so good it’s one of my favorites. Thank you so much.

      February 27, 2015
      • You’re welcome, and yes they look great!! Jiaozi is the Chinese version, which is how I first knew them. Then I realised that there were Japanese gyoza that were kind of the same thing! I suppose if they have Edamame in them, they’re definitely gyoza 🙂

        February 27, 2015
      • I didn’t know there is a Chinese version, Gyoza have a minced pork filling mine are not typical or traditional but are pretty tasty. Thanks Lili!

        February 27, 2015
  26. I am learning so much about food via your blog, which can only be a good thing. These, like all your other dishes, look delicious. Happy Weekend! 😉

    February 27, 2015
  27. OMG. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE THESE! Brilliant. Please bring me some. ASAP. 😉

    February 27, 2015
  28. Oh wow Suzanne, these do look incredibly yummy! I love both edamame and gyoza… very clever of you to bring them both together! 🙂 Have a great weekend!

    February 27, 2015
    • Thanks Margot, the combination was delicious. You also have a great weekend.

      February 27, 2015
  29. They look and sound delicious Suzanne! They look professional made and your pictures are great! I would be the first to add more chili paste and hot sauce!!

    February 27, 2015
    • Thanks Michael. the chili paste gives not just a kick but great flavor.

      February 27, 2015
  30. Matt #

    These look so good! I think i’m going to have to make some now… or I won’t stop thinking about them!

    February 27, 2015
    • They are really good Matt, pretty quick to put together too, thank you.

      February 27, 2015
  31. These sound great and so does the dipping sauce!

    February 27, 2015
  32. It’s quite a few years since I’ve eaten these beans, or soybeans. Most of the larger supermarkets in London used to sell them. But I never see them here (nor have I seen them in their pods). I used to love them. Sonal might have to move over and let me have some as well! In fact, it just might turn into a rugby scrum!

    February 27, 2015
    • Now that would be a sight Johnny, I’d like to be front and center for that, LOL. Edamame are one of those things that grow on you, they have virtually no flavor on their own but are wonderful vehicles to soak up the flavor of whater you have with.

      February 27, 2015
  33. I’ve never had gyoza before… but after drooling all over my laptop looking at those pictures, I can say that I have to make these soon 😀 I love edamame and that dipping sauce is just calling my name! Pinned 🙂

    February 27, 2015
    • LOL, thank you so much. I had only the traditional pork gyoza before but always get a bowl of edamame to eat when I go to the Japanese restaurant and it dawned on me that it might make a good filling, The dipping sauce is great with the gyoza. Thanks again Amanda.

      February 28, 2015
  34. Natalie Davis #

    Looks great

    February 27, 2015
  35. These look amazing!!! I know what I’m cooking this weekend!

    February 27, 2015
  36. I just finished dinner and now I’m starving again looking at these!

    February 28, 2015
  37. Liz #

    exquisite! I love how you pull these recipes together, Suzanne. Never a dull moment in your kitchen 🙂

    February 28, 2015
    • Thanks Liz, always fun creating something and even more fun when it turns out good.

      February 28, 2015
  38. They look really yummy, Suzanne 🙂

    February 28, 2015
  39. So beautiful! I have adored gyoza for a long time, but never have thought of making it! Thanks so much for posting this! 😀 Now I will just have to try making it for myself! 😀

    February 28, 2015
    • I never thought of making them either but turns out they are really easy. Takes no time at all. Thank you so much Julianna.

      February 28, 2015
  40. Wow this looks crazy good Suzanne… love your filling, I had tasted this in restaurant once and loved it, thanx for the recipe… yummmmy yummm…

    February 28, 2015
    • I wish I had seen these in a restaurant before, I really love the edamame fililng, Thanks so much Chitra.

      February 28, 2015

    Beautiful photography Suzanne! and really loving this dish. It is Ab Fab!

    February 28, 2015
    • Thank you so much,Azita. I had fun making it too!!

      February 28, 2015
      • Fig & Quince #

        I don’t know what you are doing differently when it comes to the photographs, but whatever it is, it really works!!!

        February 28, 2015
      • I still use my iphone instead of my camera but recently got the iPhone 6 maybe thats it. I like using my Canon if the light is good but in my house it’s challenging and it’s too cold to take outdoor pics with the camera. Thank you makes me feel like I am improving a little.

        February 28, 2015
      • My favorite is the last shot, I took that holding the gyoza in the chopsticks with one hand and taking the photo with the iphone with the other could not have done with my camera.

        February 28, 2015
  43. I’ve never had gyoza, but these look and sound amazing! I love the flavors and how simply they seem to come together. Great work, as usual 😉

    February 28, 2015
    • Next time you eat Japanese order Gyoza, they are wonderful. Thanks so much.

      February 28, 2015
  44. Love the picture with the chopsticks, very arty! you get my vote.

    February 28, 2015
    • Had fun with that shot, as you could see it took several takes, there are a few of them gone. Thanks Stacey.

      February 28, 2015
      • I notice you said you still use your iPhone to take photos. I do too and have only that resource. Happy to hear I am not alone; it gets the job done. I agree that your photos have improved so perhaps the iPhone 6 is a good upgrade. Either way, it is about your personality that keeps me so happy to see your posts. Love to your pug!!!

        February 28, 2015
      • Yes, I guess I could invest in a macro lens and special lighting and filters and then take a course to figure out how to use that stuff in my light challenged home but instead I use the iPhone 6 which is easy, it adjusts to different degree’s of light instantly I am actually thinking of getting the lenses and stuff for my iPhone. I really do want to take a photography course though. Thanks so much Stacey. Kisses to your little guys!!

        February 28, 2015
  45. Wow, that’s a wonderful recipe, Suzanne! I love the Japanese cuisine, both sushi and the soups, noodles and gyoza! Awesome post, thank you! 🙂

    February 28, 2015
    • Thank you so much Stefano, I really love Japanese cuisine and the gyoza is really delicious.

      February 28, 2015
  46. These are just elegant and would make a show stopper appetizer! I’m not a sushi person but can always find something at sushi restaurants that I like.

    February 28, 2015
    • Me too, I don’t eat raw fish, well I do like the spicy tuna roll but draw the line there. I love Japanese cuisine though, the tempura, teriyaki, rolls. all so delicious. Thanks Julie.

      February 28, 2015
  47. Never heard of gyoza before, but it sure looks delicious. Is it the same as potstickers?

    February 28, 2015
    • Yes it is, the method of preparation is the same, first fry then steam. They are wonderful and so simple. Thank you so much.

      February 28, 2015
  48. Have once tasted edamame in Genghis grill and have been thinking to try it in home.. Ur version is totally different but love this

    February 28, 2015
    • Love edamame, funny because by themselves they have no flavor but are sort of chameleon like and take on whatever flavor you incorporate. In this recipe they are very flavorful and it’s simple to make. Thank you so much.

      February 28, 2015
  49. These look amazing. Yours came out so perfectly! This is definitely a keeper. I’m a sucker for gyoza and I love that you made them vegetarian. The good dipping sauce makes all the difference. Lovely!

    February 28, 2015
    • Thank you, it’s really delicious and I didn’t miss the meat one bit.

      February 28, 2015
  50. I love gyoza, it looks so tasty 😀 Delicious recipe!

  53. they look absolutely amazing! I love dumplings anyway but these are just too wonderful 🙂

    March 1, 2015
    • Thanks Ginger, I was quite pleased with my first attemp at making them.

      March 1, 2015
      • You are such a meticulous cook , I really admire your determination to get things right!

    I love Gyoza and I love this edamame version! Delicious!

    March 1, 2015
  55. Oh, I am wild crazy about Gyoza! I may have to break out of my chicken rut and try these. Lovely photos, too!

    March 1, 2015
    • They are so good, I love them!! Could eat them just about every day. Thanks so much.

      March 1, 2015
  56. Wow… this is awesome ! I love Gyoza and the green filling is so healthy and lovely 🙂 So nice !

    March 1, 2015
  57. Wow! I’ve never tried Gyoza! Sounds like a perfect taste! Love your dumplings! Thanks for sharing!

    March 1, 2015
    • Next time you eat Japanese order them, they are wonderful. Thanks so much.

      March 1, 2015
  58. Yum, these sound delicious – love edamame, but never tried it as a filling in a dumpling!

    March 1, 2015
  59. Just ingenuity at its best-wonderful Suzanne!!!

    March 1, 2015
  60. skd #

    I love all the beautiful ingredients and flavors which went in. And I am so glad you did the vegetarian version

    March 2, 2015
  61. LOVE dumplings!

    March 2, 2015
  62. Stephanie @ The Cozy Cook #

    Look at those pictures, WOW. I love the one with the chopsticks, nicely done- did you do that on your own? I always have such a tricky time taking shots like that- even with a tripod! I’ve never had Gyoza before, but it looks SOOOO good, I’m going to have to be adventurous and try it… I’m in a Japanese food mood now!

    March 2, 2015
    • Thanks so much Stephanie. The last photo I took holding the dumpling and chopsticks in one hand and my iphone in the other. I love the way it turned out and love my iphone 6 camera. It really is exceptional, the photo’s are as good if not better than my Canon. The gyoza are wonderful.

      March 2, 2015
      • Stephanie @ The Cozy Cook #

        Stop it- REALLY?!?!?! REAAAALLLYYY?!?! That’s insane!!! I’d never ever have guessed that was an iphone pic, AND that you were able to maneuver that way to get a perfect pic, nice work!! I’m hoping for an iphone 6 soon!

        March 2, 2015
      • I’m not a good photographer, I’m inconsistent but try. The iPhone 6 has a great camera the shots are easy to get, clear and it adjusts to different lighting so well. i just ordered the macro lens for my iphone. Will get one for my camera at some point but I really like the photo’s I get with the iphone, In the summer when it’s warm and I can take outdoor shots I will probably use the Canon but this phone is light and easy to handle and it gets the job done. Thank you so much, I work alone, don’t have an extra pair of hands to get a shot like that so the iphone worked great, I couldn’t have done it with my camera.

        March 2, 2015
  63. Oh my gosh – I messed up today – I decided to come visit your blog without any food infront of me!!! GAH – now my stomach is rumbling – Gyoza get in ma belly!
    These look scrumptious Suzanne!

    March 2, 2015
  64. I love Edamame and Gyoza! What a great idea to put the two together!

    March 2, 2015
  65. These look and sound incredible!! I have dumplings/gyoza on my “to make” list- my son can eat an entire batch himself. A classmate’s mom makes them for their school parties and she loves watching him gobble them up (they have a pork filling). We have been lucky to bring the leftovers home too!! She gave me the “recipe”- but just verbally :/ I think I’ll try yours!! Thanks 🙂

    March 2, 2015
    • I really love the edamame filling, pork is great but these are fresh tasting, and if you are a fan of edamame you will really like them. Thank you so much.

      March 2, 2015
  66. Hi Suzanne, love gyoza and edamame, I bet these are delicious. What a great recipe!

    March 2, 2015
  67. I love edamame! And these dumplings look gorgeous! I was just talking about dumplings too, to my intern. Now we are really craving them!

    March 3, 2015
  68. Very impressive!

    March 3, 2015
  69. These look so delicious! I was at Costco the other day, and they were giving this type of thing out, but with different filling. There was a wonderful sauce that went with it. I am wondering if it tastes similar to yours. It was so good. Very impressive that you made these from scratch!

    March 3, 2015
    • Thank you so much Shari, I had never made them before and had no idea how simple they are to make. You can fill with the traditional minced pork or you can even do chicken. I really like the vegetarian version the edame taste great.

      March 3, 2015
  70. Your filled wontons have yummy ingredients in them & I love , love them!
    They are on my list to make today! Yummmm! that dipping sauce is fab too!

    March 4, 2015
  71. I love edamame Suzanne, and these look like something I could make! Can’t wait to try ’em!

    March 4, 2015
  72. OMG, Gyoza perfection! I love these, but have yet to make them myself! You make them look easy! I need to try! YUM!!

    March 7, 2015
    • I love Gyoza, thank you so much. They were wonderful and really easy to make. Thanks Christina!
