1 pack Sum-m! Gyoza Dumplings
1 bunch of boy choy, separated
½ cup mushrooms
Dash of white pepper
Optional: Rice or soba noodles, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili oil
You can prepare your dumplings in the soup or fry them as instructed on the package and eat them on the side.
If frying the dumplings, put 1 teaspoon cooking oil, dumplings and 1/3 cups of water into skillet with Gyoza’s flat side down. Cover pan with lid and cook for 5-8 minutes until water completely evaporates and bottoms are crispy. Serve as a side to your noodles in soup.
If serving the dumplings in soup, warm the stock with a dash of white pepper in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat until starting to simmer. Turn the heat to medium and add in the bok choy, the, dumplings and noodles, if using. Cook until the bok choy is tender, with a slight crunch and the dumplings are warmed through. About 4 minutes if frozen, 2 minutes if refrigerated.
Pour broth, bok choy, and dumplings into a bowl. Add in Enoki mushrooms and enjoy.
