Trader Joe’s Thai Vegetable Gyoza Review

Trader Joe's Thai Vegetable Gyoza

A gyoza is a type of steamed dumpling served throughout Asia. They originated in China, and are a staple in countries like Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. The Trader Joe’s Thai Vegetable Gyoza hail from Thailand, and they’re an excellent taste on a classic dish.

Initially, we tried to steam these gyoza on the stove top. We’ve found that many frozen dishes turn out better when you avoid the microwave. To our dismay, the cooking process was a bit of a disaster. The instructions tell you to add water as the gyoza cook, which can lead to spillover if you’re not careful. Luckily, when we switched to the microwave, we wound up with perfectly-heated gyoza.

The gyoza dough is thin and fairly plain. If we had to describe the way it tasted, we’d say that the flavor is watery. The filling, however, is a taste sensation. The dumplings are packed with veggies, from cabbages to radishes to carrots. Biting into one of these dumplings is a treat.

Thai gyoza are traditionally served with some sort of dipping sauce, but these gyoza are definitely flavorful enough to serve plain. That said, if you want to add some sort of sauce, a blend of soy sauce and sesame oil would suit these dumplings perfectly. If you don’t want to make your own sauce, you can actually find Gyoza dipping sauce at many Asian supermarkets.

If you’ve enjoyed gyoza before, you’ll definitely want to try Trader Joe’s take on this Asian staple. If you’re unfamiliar with gyoza, Trader Joe’s Thai Vegetable Gyoza is a worthy introduction. While we suggest sticking to the microwave, we give these dumplings a strong recommendation.
