Turkey Gyozas Served on Home Sprouted Beans Stir Fry
A few days ago I posted a step by step guide to sprouting your own beans at home (here), did any of you set them up?
Well, if you did but you are now not so sure what to do with them, here is a quick and easy, tasty stir fry that you could try. I have topped the stir fry with homemade turkey gyozas made out of the left over turkey meatballs mixture from this recipe. You can search on youtube for video of how to shape your gyozas.
You could of course top with any flavour of gyoza and there are now some pretty good pre-made options out there, especially from Asian supermarkets in the freezer section. If you don’t have a Asian supermarket near you, M&S do some prawn gyozas which are quite tasty and pretty close to homemade.
The stir fry sauce for this recipe is cooked before adding to the wok, this is to reduce the liquids slightly and gives a really intense, slightly sticky sauce to coat the sprouted beans and all of the vegetables. It is a little bit more of effort than just sloshing it all in the pan but I think it is worth it.
Back before I started cutting sugar out of my diet I used to make a beef & broccoli dish with a reduced sauce like the one in this recipe, big difference however was it had 6 tbsp of sugar in it, shocking to think about it now (even though it was very tasty). It does make you think about how much sugar a standard Chinese takeaway could have in it to get the level of sweetness that a large majority of their meals do. Quite scary really.
Hope you enjoy the turkey gyozas and sprouted beans stir fry, please do drop me a message if you give them a try
