Tofu Gyoza Bento by Demi-Plum Tofu Gyoza Bento by Demi-Plum
I was trying to make more Tofu Nuggets, but the tofu I got, even though it said firm, wasn't as firm as the last brand I bought. The mix ended up being extremely creamy an were a huge pain to make into patties so I got creative and made Tofu-Miso-Edamame Gyoza! They were so delicious! They literally tasted like cream cheese/bad for you/you're gonna regret this laster goodness, but they're really healthy for you! I think I'm gonna try my hand at making my own version of crab ragoon after this! This bento contains:

Top Tier:
Tofu-Miso-Edamame Gyoza
Pan Steamed Japanese Sweet Potato

Bottom Tier:
Miso Stir fried Veggies
Sauteed Enoki
Katsuo Fumi Furikake Onigiri
Nori Onigiri

Please Enjoy~!

I might have to pick up some more gyoza wrappers and try that combination when I'm feeling well enough to cook again,it sounds really good!

Oh yum! ... I don't suppose you could explain a little more about what you did to make the gyoza >_> I have a bunch of those ingredients sitting around that I need to use up and I'm curious what you did :D

Also those are some of the thickets stem-ed Enoki I've seen... They look quite tasty!

Oh sure no problem. It's really simple. I made the mixture and spooned a small amount into each gyoza skin. Then I wet the edges with water so they would stick together and then I pressed them together. I used a gyoza maker, but they are easily made by hand.

Yes they are! They're really delicious, especially sauteed with butter!

Mmm, sounds tasty!... but >_> what is "the mixture" Or rather, what amounts did you mix?
Also, did you steam them? I've taken to "baking" my gyoza at times (i bake them for about 8-10 min at about 400... It makes them crispy without being fatty from frying :D) I wonder if you think that would work with these.

The mix I used was The Just Bento Cookbook's Tofu Nugget recipe by Maki Itoh.

I've never baked gyoza before. I sear them for one minute on high with a little bit of oil in the pan, then I pour a half cup of water in the pan and turn the heat to low and cook, covered, for 5 minutes.
