How did you celebrate Earth Hour this year?
Emma and I made gyoza (correction: Emma made the dumplings while I sat on the couch and read magazines!)
They were soooo good. And deceptively easy. I think I might even attempt them!
We then lit some candles including one from her heavenly Manifest Destiny collection and talked the night away.
'Sea Flyer' was deliciously good but I also like the sound of 'Frolic' or 'Memoirs of a Sphynx'. Spoil yourself with an exquisite candle from White & Wander over here . . .
. . . and indulge is some scrummy gyoza while you're at it.
Here's Emma's basic recipe (I'm poor when it comes to detail, so have no idea about quantities, just go with your instinct and trust your taste!) but if all else fails, try these from taste.com.au
Gow gee wrappers
Pork mince (although we used turkey and it was delish)
Sliced spring onions
Chinese five spice
- Fry up the pork mince with the five spice and spring onions and ginger.
- Once browned, add the hoisin sauce and stir through until warm. Take off the heat.
- Lay the gow gee wrappers out in single file. Brush each lightly with water to dampen.
- Pop a little spoonful of pork mixture in the middle of each wrapper, then fold one side over and pinch the edges to seal - should look like a pasty.
- We took the healthy option and steamed our gyoza in bamboo steamers, but 'pot sticker' method is ah-mazingly good if you want to try that approach.
- Serve with soy sauce
