Oh My Gyoza

It is such a beautiful morning here in Houston!  Okay, it is not.  I lied.  It is crazy foggy and I don't like it, so I don't want to talk about it.  Instead I will tell you about dinner last night.

Crazy Good

Last night for dinner I made these Thai Vegetable Gyoza from Trader Joe's.  I was a little intimidated by their preparation instructions, but it turned out to be really easy.  I put a tiny bit of olive oil in a non-stick pan (about a teaspoon) and spread them out frozen, flat side down, and let them cook for about 5 minutes on a medium-high heat.  Then I added 4 tablespoons of water and covered them and steamed them for about 5 minutes more.  They were delicious, crispy on the bottom and hot and steaming in the middle.  Very tasty stuff.

I made a yummy soy dipping sauce to go with them that I was impressed with because I made it up on the fly.  I mixed together:
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic pods, minced
  • 1 green onion, sliced thin
  • sprinkle of ginger powder 
Yes, sprinkle is a precise measurement.  I also steamed up some brown rice and roasted some broccoli.

I put my dipping sauce on my rice.  It was a very tasty dinner.  Go to Trader Joe's, get dumplings...they are good.

Have a fantastic Wednesday!!!
