I made some gyoza but ran out of the filling and had some leftover skins. So I tried making pizza wontons, just some mozzarella cheese and pizza sauce. They were actually pretty good!

Kakiage is my go-to substitution for tempura. Regular tempura is usually too much work for me so I make kakiage instead. Kakiage is basically mixed tempura. All the ingredients are combined with the tempura batter and deep fried. Today's kakiage: gobo (burdock roots), carrots, onions, and a little shiso (Japanese perilla leaves, aka Japanese Mint or Basil) with a little tempura sauce poured on top.
