Roughly chop the mushrooms, 4 stalks of spring onions, and 150 grams of firm tofu.

Add to food processor along with 1 grated carrot, 2-3 cloves of garlic, 1 tbsp minced ginger, 1 tbsp sesame oil and ½ tbsp of soy sauce. 

Blend it up!


Heat 1 tbsp of sesame oil in a frying pan on medium heat and add your meat free mince mixture. Fry for 5 minutes and removed from heat.


Place 1 wonton wrapper on a clean work surface. Place 1½ tsp of the mixture in the centre of the wrapper. Brush edges with a little water. Bring corners together to enclose the filling and pinch the edges together to seal. Repeat with the remaining wonton wrappers and mince mixture.


Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Arrange half the dumplings over the base of the pan and fry until golden brown on one side. Pour over 1/3 cup (80ml) water. Cover and cook for 5 mins or until the dumplings are tender and cooked through. Uncover and increase heat to high. Cook for 2-3 mins or until water evaporates. Transfer the dumplings to a large serving plate. Repeat with the remaining oil and remaining dumplings. 


Heat 1 tbsp oil, 1 tbsp of chilli oil (or 2 tsp of chilli flakes), 2 stalks of spring onions, 1 clove of minced garlic and 1 tbsp of soy sauce in a frying pan for 2 minutes.

Pour over the dumplings and Voilà!
