These vegetarian dumplings will rock your world – tons of mushroom, chive, garlic and chilli. Float in a soy-ginger broth or fry for good times.



  • 1 Medium block firm tofu
  • 200g swiss brown mushrooms, diced fine
  • 1/2 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha chile sauce
  • 1/2 ” ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 pinch each salt and white pepper
  • 1/2 bunch chives, snipped
  • 1/2 bunch coriander/cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Medium eggs, beaten
  • 1 packet wonton wrappers (any style)


  1. Drain tofu and crumble into a large bowl.
  2. Mix in mushrooms and all the rest of the ingredients, except wonton wrappers.
  3. Place a large teaspoonful of mixture on wonton wrappers, and fold in half, wetting the edges with a little water. Wet the corners with water and stick them together underneath.
  4. If you want to freeze, put them all in a single layer on a baking tray until frozen, then portion into bags or containers.
  5. You can cook in boiling water, or steam (or even deep-fry, yum!) for a few minutes until cooked through.
