They are made with a slightly thick dough wrapper filled with a combination of finely chopped vegetables and seasonings and prepared in a variety of ways, including steamed, boiled or fried.

You can make vegetable gyoza yourself or find them in your grocer's freezer. The directions typically tell you to boil the gyoza in water and then pan-fry them until they're crispy. To avoid adding calories, skip the pan-frying and serve the pot stickers either boiled or steamed.
