Vegetable Goyza

Since I was a little kid, pot-stickers have been one of my favorite Asian foods. Unfortunately, most places only make/sell them filled with yucky animal, such as pork or chicken. For all of you out there in the same frustrated boat as I am in, here is a vegetarian version that will make your bellies smile! You can even make a trillion of them and freeze them for later use. You may thank me veggie-world, now or after you are in food coma. 

1 cup green cabbage, finely chopped
1/2 cup carrot, grated
1/3 cup onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup shiitake mushrooms, finely chopped
1 Tbs lemongrass paste
1/2 tsp soy sauce
2 Tbs sesame oil
1 package goyza wrappers
2 Tbs agave nectar

Mix all ingredients (except for agave and goyza) together and place in a large frying pan. Cook over medium-high heat till veggies are soft, yet still have a bit of a crunch to them. Remove from heat. Lay out goyza wrappers and place about 2 tsp of cooked vegetable filling on each wrapper. Place a tiny bit of water around the edge of the wrappers, fold wrapper and seal by pinching the edges together. After all goyza have been made, preheat frying pan with about a Tbs more sesame oil. Place goyza in pan and allow to cook till wrapper gets golden brown. Once all have been cooked, place on a plate and drizzle with agave nectar for a little bit of a sweet kick & Devour!
