    1. 1
      Boil water and revive the mushrooms by putting them in a capped container with the hot water. When they're revived, cut them into small strips.
    2. 2
      Soften the bean thread noodles with some hot water.
    3. 3
      Use the remaining hot water to blanch the mung bean sprouts.
    4. 4
      Cut up the tofu into small (7mm square) cubes.
    5. 5
      Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, except for the wrappers. Optionally add a beaten egg to make it stick together better.
    6. 6
      Make the dumplings: put a small quantity of this mixture in dumpling wrappers, and then pinch the sides together, sometimes a little cold water will help them stay stick together.
    7. 7
      Boil a pot of water and throw small batches of the dumplings into the water. They're ready when they float. Scoop them out with a slotted spoon or strainer and then make another batch. Excess dumplings can be frozen.

      Very good proportion of crunchy to chewy filling. Just the right amount of ginger-garlic-sesame too.

      I did part of the batch with some celery too. No end to the variations!

      I will say that jiaozi generally always float regardless if they are done. Just a matter of preference how tender/al dente the wrapper is cooked. Water below full boil too prevents 'blow-outs'
