  1. These gyoza potstickers look like veg momos (dumplings) that are made in northeastern India. Though it’s not vegan but the recipe is the same completely and we make it a bit spicier. I really liked that you had shared this recipe.

  2. WE love gyoza here and yet I have never made them. Also, I had a fresh cabbage here and could literally only think of two recipes. Now I have another one to use it for. Thanks! YUM!

  3. What a GREAT video for a very easy to follow recipe! I love that these are vegan, because i normally do fill mine with ground meats, but I know I wouldn’t miss it with this one!

  4. oh, man! These look so good and so easy to make (thanks to the video). If I want to make them ahead of time to prepare for a gathering how long will they last in the fridge/freezer uncooked?

  5. Wow! If there is one appetizer I always order at a Japanese resto , that is gyoza! I love gyoza! THank you for the recipe. I am excited to try it, Paolo! 🙂

  6. I would love to try these para sa healthy heart ng aking butihing asawa. Salamat sa recipe. Tiyak mag-enjoy ako. Haha!

  7. Come through with healthy recipes! 😀 Gyoza is always a must when I dine out at restaurants that serve them. Love that these are vegan as more and more people are eliminating meat from their diet. Great video and post!

  8. This is really easy to make and it really looks delicious! We’ve been trying to look for more recipes to try at home and I’ll really include this one, it’s tasty and healthy at the same time!

  9. It is so hard to be vegan in the Philippines – I heard this from my friends and my friends’ friends. Thank you for posting this for people to try the vegan recipe.

  10. It’s been a while since I had Japanese food. Ever since the pandemic, lumipat na kasi kami sa province for the time being. Will try this out with my family! Thanks for sharing your recipe! 🙂

  11. Ang galeng pati yung wrapper homemade!!! Will save this for future recipe idea! And i like that it’s vegan! 😀 btw, ano yung parang container na may hinila kang tali (doon sa video)? 😅 curious ako!

  12. I’m fond of eating dumplings but I haven’t tried creating my own versions. Thought it’s complex to make, but easy naman pala with your guide and instructions. I guess you have to find the perfect sauce match para mas masarap ang kain!

    This one has Tofu and vegetables in it — kumpleto na. What do you call the vegetable cutter? Saw it in Dani Barretto’s vlog when she used it to cut garlic.
