Spicy Gyoza Soup

Spicy Gyoza Soup Recipe

I recommend eating it right away, otherwise the gyoza will soak up the soup and expand. Not a pretty sight and not much soup left when that happens. If you are not eating it right away, cook the gyoza separately from the soup base. Add the gyoza to the soup only when ready to serve.

Instead of boiled, you can also used other forms of cooked gyoza (such as pan-fried) to put in the soup.

Check out the ingredients & step-by-step photos on the previous page.


  • 3 fresh shiitake mushrooms caps cleaned & sliced thinly
  • 10 frozen supermarket gyoza no need to thaw
  • 3 stalks garlic chives green portion, sliced to 1-cm lengths
  • chilli powder (or cayenne powder) to taste; optional 
  • Japanese scallion (white portion) sliced thinly (garnish)

(A) Soup Base

  • 1 tbsp Japanese cruchy garlic in chilli oil (or any Chinese/Japanese chilli oil)
  • 1 tbsp pork/chicken paiten stock (or chicken bouillon or consomme powder)
  • 1 tsp red gdoubanjang omit if you don’t have
  • 1 tsp garlic paste (or 2 cloves minced garlic or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
  • 1/8 tsp dashi powder (or pinch of salt, to taste)
  • 500ml water add more if needed & season to taste accordingly


  1. Make soup stock. Add all the ingredients at (A) in a soup pot and bring to boil, stirring to make sure the paste & powder are dissolved and well mixed. Season to taste.
  2. Add sliced mushrooms and boil for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add frozen gyoza and boil according to package instructions, about 3 minutes.
  4. Finish up & serve. When the gyoza is cooked, add in the chives to cook for a few seconds. Season the soup to taste with chilli powder, a little at a time, until the desired heat level is reached. Dish out, garnish with Japanese scallions and serve immediately.

  1. Wow – thanks for all the great photos and the info on the sauces. I’ve only used Teriyaki bottled sauce which is on rotation here with salmon.
    This is a great post to learn from:)

  2. I miss garlic chives! The dumpling sop looks so appetizing.

  3. My problem is I can’t read Japanese, so I won’t know what the sauces are when I see them, except C with Chines words 豆瓣酱 and F – there’s English…LOL
    I saw this S&B brand crunchy garlic sold here – I almost wanted to buy but not cheap..$6USD, so in the end, did not . If you say it’s good (worth $6USD or not?), then I will buy next time ;p

  4. The problem is – I can’t read Japanese, so I won’t know what the sauces are….errr….well, except for C that’s got Chinese words, and F – there’s English.
    I saw S&B crunchy garlic here, almost wanted to buy but did not cos not cheap for this small bottle~ $6USD here. If you say it’s good (and worth this price), maybe I will buy next time
