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.
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.
