Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Gyoza

It's not every day that an entire category of food gets reinvented. When it happens, it's a big deal. Even when it's in a small package, as is the case with Trader Joe's Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Gyoza. We've taken a traditional Japanese-via-Chinese snack food and given it an admirably autumn-inspired, triumphantly Trader Joe's-ian outlook that owes as much to Italian ravioli as it does to Chinese dim sum.
Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Gyoza begins, not-so-surprisingly, with a whole wheat wrapper. Wrapped within is a blend of butternut squash, edamame, and a plethora of seasonal veggies like carrots, sweet potatoes, and kabocha squash. The result is sweet and savory and absolutely unique. Pan or wok-fry them for a crispy, potsticker-like result. Steam them for a more dumpling-like experience. Dip them in Asian-style dipping sauces, or take a leap of faith and serve them with a side of our Autumnal Harvest Pasta Sauce. We're reinventing here, folks - throw caution to the wind!
We're selling Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Gyoza in a 16 ounce bag (about 24 pieces in a bag) for $3.79. We've brought them in just for the fall season, and in limited quantities, so don't delay! You'll find them in our freezers.
