Author Notes: Whenever I eat at a Japanese restaurant I order gyoza. They are usually filled with pork and are absolutely delicious. This was the first time I have ever made them, it was an accomplishment for me, A fragrant edamame filling in a tender dumpling and a salty, spicy, slightly sweet dipping sauce make for a wonderful meal or appetizer.sdebrango

Directions

Making the edamame filling and gyoza

  1. Steam the edamame, I used the microwave following package directions, cooking for 3 -4 minutes on high. alternatively you can also boil them. 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 cooked edamame and continue to saute for approximately 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add all the ingredients to the food processor and pulse just 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.
  2. 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, 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. Whisk all ingredients together and serve with the gyoza

hey, i just had a neat thought you might like-how about serving them in a shiitake broth with sliced sauteed shiitakes? you could also do the same shiitakes and shiitake broth but add mint and ricotta to the edamame in the ravs..! (and maybe also add parm to the broth) Maybe it's just me, but I really prefer edamame to peas! xo

my idea came from a special dinner we attended/guest chef whose sushi restnt is getting a lot of press here lately...long story short: out of 9 courses, the only things that wowed me were 2- the smoked Hamachi nigiri and his shiitake ravs in shiitake broth(w/ orange, surprisingly!) Expensive disappointing dinner except those 2 delicious items.

Suzanne, that's brilliant to add edamame as the filling to the dumplings! I can eat a whole bowl of steamed edamame with soy sauce in one sitting, but to get the both of best worlds having them in the dumplings with the spicy dipping sauce... wow! I wish you luck my friend!
