Homemade Gyoza :p

Thursday, November 26th, 2009


If i were to define Gyoza (japanese dumplings) i’d say they are easy to prepare and quite tasty but  shamefully they aren’t very cheap on any of the japanese restaurants here in town. Also i bought a new steamer from the T-fal outlet some months ago and this seemed the perfect excuse for using it! 

Just in case you want to give them a try you should consider watching this tutorial.

Btw if you can buy dumpling wraps from any asian store i really encourage you to do it, i had to make them myself and was quite tedious to be honest. Totally not the “fun part” of the recipe :s

You know you can fill gyoza with whatever, but i decided to keep it “traditional” here’s grounded meat, onion, cabbage and spice. You fill them, you fold them, you steam them/boil them. How easy is that?

Garden Bento 03 :>

Saturday, November 21st, 2009


It has been a while since i did something “Bento” related. This one was very simple, more like a challenge to see how much time i spend doing this sort of things. 20 minutes exactly considering the food was already done (only arranged it) still it was very easy to cook.


  • Surimi salad with carrots and greens
  • Lettuce salad with lemon dressing
  • Rice with nori and greens
  • Cheese and red sausages
  • Crackers and small chocolate
