The Dough
White flour, 1 cup
Corn starch, 2 tablespoons
Salt, 1/2 flat teaspoon
Water, 1/2-2/3 cup
as needed (warm)
The Stuffing
Cabbage, 1/8 medium unit
Salt, 1/2 flat teaspoon
Shiitake mushrooms, 5 average size units
Onion, 1/4 medium unit
Garlic, 1 clove
Soy sauce, 1 tablespoon
Potato flour, 1 flat tablespoon
The Frying
Olive oil, 2 tablespoons
Sesame oil, 1 teaspoon
Boiling water, as needed


Dough Preparation:
1. Mix the dry ingredients and add warm water gradually, until you get a comfortable dough and not sticky at all.
2. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator (you can wait up to a whole day).
Filling Preparation:
1. Chop the cabbage into small pieces (you can use a slicer).
2. Place the cabbage in a medium bowl and sprinkle with the salt. After 15 minutes, squeeze the cabbage from the liquids and place it in a large bowl.
3. Chop the mushrooms and onion into small pieces, and grate the garlic on a fine grater. Mix all the mushrooms, onion and garlic together with the cabbage in the bowl, add the soy sauce and potato flour, and assimilate them into the vegetables.
1. Divide the dough into 20 equal units. Each of the units rolls into a ball. Roll each thin ball generously on a floured surface. In the center of each circle place 1 tablespoon of stuffing, fold in half and close the edges.
2. In a large pan, place the olive oil and sesame oil for frying, and put on high heat. Put 8 gyoza units in the pan and lower the heat. After 3 minutes, check the bottom of the gyoza, if it is already golden - pour 0.25 cup boiling water into the pan (caution, the meeting of the oil and the water is a bit rough).
3. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 5 minutes or until the water evaporates (whichever comes first). Remove the gyoza to a serving plate and repeat the process again until done. A perfect vegan gyoza is obtained!
4. Bon appetite (:
