Really, this is mostly a creative use for leftovers. Here you see the last of the dumpling wrappers from the last post (just white flour and salt) metamorphosed into flour tortillas; the black bean ful from the other day, refried, Mexicanized and rejuvenated; tofu dredged in paprika and chile powder and pan-fried; plus fried red peppers and onions; and a little salsa and guacamole, served separately.

Oh, with some sweet potato fries on the side, mixed with peanut oil and sprinkled with lemon pepper and baked at 450 for about 10 minutes, which is a really nice way to have them. Tasty and super-easy, since most of the ingredients were already on hand.

Can you stand one more beauty shot of those dumplings, steam-fried into gyozas? The little sauce is just a mixture of brown rice vinegar and shredded ginger, very refreshing! After serving six people, plus myself for two big solo meals, I still had about three cups of the filling left over, which I froze, so it may resurface here sometime in the, er, expect it when you don't expect it...

  1. Looks delicious! Don't you just love being able to throw a bunch of leftovers together into something entirely different yet still tasty? I love gyoza as well. I'll have to try them with the shredded ginger sauce.
