Gyoza Chilli Noodle Soup

gyoza noodle chilli soup recipe vegan

This Gyoza Chilli Noodle Soup has to be one of my favourite recipes so far – mostly because it takes only 15 minutes to create with minimal fuss. Using Yukata vegan friendly gyozas, this is perfect if you’re cooking for friends too.

Breakdown of Ingredients

Sesame Oil- You can use toasted or regular sesame oil for this dish. It really helps create a beautiful nutty undertone in this recipe

Vegetable Stock – This can be made from boiling water and a good quality stock cube, keeping costs down to a minimal

Tamari – You may have noticed that most of my recipes include tamari, mostly because it’s one of my favourite ingredients. Tamari is a gluten free version of soy sauce so this dish can be easily made GF. Swap out the noodles for rice noodles instead to make this gluten free.

Gyozas – These are from the brand yukata. The quality is great and so far have become a staple in the freezer.

Kitchen Equipment:

Non Stick Pan- A good quality non stick pan such as Circulon really helps when frying the vetetables. You will need a pan that has a lid for this dish to help steam the gyozas.

Chopsticks – Have friends coming over for dinner? Chopsticks will add a little more authenticity to this noodle dish, just don’t forget a spoon / ladle to drink that delicious soup with it.

Small Sharp Knife- Having a small sharp knife to finely chop the ginger, chilli and garlic is always a handy tool to have in your kitchen.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 3 spring onions finely chopped (leave a few to top at the end)
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 800 ml vegetable stock made with boiling water and stock cube
  • 3 cloves garlic minced / finely chopped
  • 1 thumb sized piece fresh ginger grated / minced
  • 1 large red chilli substitute for 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 100 g noodles rice, ribbon or even udon will work
  • 5 tenderstem
  • 6 gyozas I used yukata vegan gyozas
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds to top, optional


  • In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic, grated ginger, tamari, sesame oil, brown sugar (and chilli flakes if you're using instead of fresh) and mix whisk together
  • Heat a deep pan then add the finely chopped spring onions along with the dressing and fry for around 3 minutes before adding the vegetable stock
  • In a separate pan, add a drizzle of sesame oil and fry the gyozas on a high heat for around 3-4 minutes until crispy, then pop a lid over the top and steam for around 3-4 minutes
  • For the last 5 minutes of cooking, add the rice noodles and tenderstem to the pan with the stock, pop a lid over and leave for gently steam for around 4-5 minutes
  • Serve by adding the soup and noodles to a bowl, top with the gyozas and tenderstem and garnish with any additional spring onions, chilli flakes and a splash of tamari (optional)


If you're frying the gyozas, simply heat another pan with a drizzle of sesame oil, fry on a high heat until the base has browned, then place a lid over the top to steam for a further 2-3 minutes until done. Then add to the soup just before serving.

      Hey! It’s broccoli, it’s just got a longer stronger stalk.

    Do you need to defrost the gyozas first? And how many does it serve please? Thanks x

      Hey Kellie, so depending on what type of gyozas you’ve bought it may vary. The ones that I have tried (yutaka) don’t need to be defrosted. This serves 2 people. Hope that helps. Lucy 🙂

      We loved this! I didn’t have the broccolini, (what tenderstem is called here), but added in some matchstick carrots, chunky sliced cremini mushrooms and red onion. After I set my steam fried gyoza aside, I just used the same pan and oil to saute my veg in, before adding the rest of the ingredients. When it was almost ready and bowled, I put pork gyoza into ours, and vegan gyoza into the teens. Everyone happy, minimal work! I completely forgot to garnish with the green onion and sesame seeds I had set aside, but will next time tho! Thank you for a new family favorite!

    Had this for lunch a couple of times this week and it’s delicious. I used the new Itzu veggie gyozas and steamed them in the pot with the soup.
