Vegetarian GYOZAS with a hint of lemongrass

We have a wonderful recipe for you from our bloggers Klara and Ida. They have developed an Asian dumpling recipe called Gyozas that is very easy to make. They always look so elaborate and complicated, but in reality they are really easy to make yourself. Klara and Ida bought a ready-made gyoza dough from the Asian store around the corner and concentrated entirely on the filling. If you are really unsure, you can find more useful tips on how to prepare them on the Klara_und_Ida website.

Recipe for 20 pieces:

1 piece of ginger (hazelnut-sized)

1 clove of garlic

100 g carrot

4 spring onions

200 g natural tofu

4 tbsp oil for frying

2 tbsp light soy sauce

2 tsp fine flavor cocoa Becks Cocoa Mekong Lemongrass

20 gyoza patties

50 ml water (a little more if necessary)


Peel the ginger and garlic. Chop both very finely. Also peel and finely grate the carrot. Remove the roots and dark green leaves from the spring onions and cut into very fine rings.

Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan. Gently fry the ginger and garlic for 2 mins. Add the carrot and spring onion, fry for a further 3 minutes. Finely crumble in the tofu, add the soy sauce and Becks Cocoa Mekong Cocoa, fry for a further 3 minutes.

Now fill the gyoza as shown in the video. Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan. Place the gyozas in the pan and fry for 1 – 2 mins. until brown and crispy on the underside. Pour the water into the pan, immediately put the lid on. Steam the gyozas until the batter is slightly translucent. This takes about 3 minutes. Serve fresh with a little extra soy sauce.
