  1. Place the vermicelli noodles into a bowl and cover with water for 10-15 minutes while you prepare all the veggies.
  2. Put the vegetables through a food processor, one at a time and chop until very fine. If you don’t have a food processor, you can finely chop with a sharp knife.
  3. Add the veggies to a large frying pan, along with the Wild Garlic oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, and salt, and cook on medium to high heat.
  4. Drain the noodles and chop them finely, then add them to the cooking veggies.
  5. Once the veggies are soft, remove them from the heat and allow them to cool slightly.
  6. Take a wonton wrapper and place about a teaspoon size of veggie mix into the centre.
  7. Wet around the edge of the wrapper with some water. This is best done by dipping your finger into a bowl of water and then running it around the edge of the wrapper.
  8. Bring the sides up to join, and then carefully make small pinches/folds along each side to seal them together. Complete this step until you have made all the dumplings.
  9. To a large frying pan, add 2 tbsp EVOO on medium heat and then place the dumplings in rows. You may need to cook them in two batches, as you don’t want to overcrowd the pan.
  10. Once the bottoms of the dumplings are golden, pour in about 2/3 cup of water, or until the water is about 1 – ½ cm up the edge of the pan.
  11. Place a lid on the pan and cook for 7-8 minutes or until the water has evaporated and the dumplings are cooked. **Be sure to keep an eye on the water, as it can evaporate quite quickly in the last few minutes.
    12. Once cooked, place the dumplings onto a serving plate along with some Sweet Chilli Sauce for dipping and enjoy!
