Shiitake Mushroom Gyoza Recipe

Shiitake Mushroom Gyozas, lined up on a long plate and garnished with a miso dipping sauce and finely chopped green spring onions

Dumplings are awesome. They’re the closest you can get to creating the perfect bite, and these handy little parcels are just so gosh darned cute.

So when I made my Shiitake Mushroom Ramen recipe and had leftover mushrooms, I knew exactly what I wanted to make: Vegan Shiitake Mushroom Gyozas to go with it!

Shiitake Mushroom Gyoza Recipe
Yields 100
Have many shiitake mushrooms left over from the shiitake mushroom ramen recipe? Why not make these gyozas as a side dish? Vegan and vegetarian friendly, these gyozas are also freezer friendly, making it a convenient staple to have for busy weeknight dinners.
