- Start by creating the gyoza wrappers: In a large mixing bowl combine the flour and salt, then pour in the warm water and mix into a firm dough. Set it aside for 30 minutes.
- In the meantime, start preparing the filling! Place the finely diced mushrooms into a dry skillet and fry over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring regularly. Sprinkle in the salt and stir in the tamari, then remove them from the skillet and set them aside.
- Heat the sesame oil in the same skillet, then fry the onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes, and add the carrots and tofu. Mash half of the black beans, then add all the beans to the skillet and stir to combine. Season with maple syrup, sriracha and black pepper, then stir the mushrooms back in and remove from the heat.
- Knead the gyoza dough for 1 minute, then divide the gyoza dough into 25-30 pieces and roll them into little balls. Press the balls flat, then roll them out with a rolling pin as thin as you
can get them without ripping. Use a large round cookie cutter to shape your gyoza wrappers and dust them with cornstarch, so they won’t stick together.
- Fill your dumplings with the bean mixture and gently seal the edges. Dip the bottom of the dumplings into water, then press them into sesame seeds and shichimi. Heat the sesame oil
in a non-stick skillet and crispy-fry the gyoza for a few minutes.
- To create your dip, whisk together the peanut butter, soya sauce, mirin, apple cider vinegar and sriracha.
- Serve the gyoza alongside the dip & dig in!
Chef’s tip: These gyoza are delicious both crispy fried or straight from the steamer! If you love a good kick, add chili sauce to your bean mix before filling the gyoza wrappers.
