1. Vegetable gyozas

Best for: dinner party starter or weekday treat
Difficulty: 2/5

If you’ve tried the vegetable gyozas from a certain high-street chain restaurant you’ll know how delicious and moreish the Japanese starter is. But when ten or so isn’t quite enough, it’s time to head to the kitchen and prepare your own where you can greedily enjoy as many as you wish.

This recipe from My Food Story is surprisingly easy to make and doesn’t include a long list of ingredients. Once you’ve mastered this simple recipe, serve it as your next dinner party starter and keep a few aside for a mid-week treat. Read the full recipe here

Best for: Weekend lunch or impressing your vegan friends

Katsu curry is a real crowd pleaser – we’re yet to find someone who doesn’t enjoy this popular Japanese dish! This recipe by quick recipe Cupful of Kale uses tofu or seitan as a meat replacement but the real star of the show is the katsu sauce. We suggest making extra sauce that can be stored in the fridge and added to meals throughout the week.

One of the most loved Asian vegan recipes is the classic Thai green curry. And the key to any good Thai curry is the all-important curry paste. So long as you’ve got a food processor, this recipe by The Lazy Cat Kitchen can be whipped up in as little as 30 minutes.

Adapt the recipe and add your favourite vegetables into the mix – we love sugar snap peas and butternut squash for added texture.
