  1. Heat a sauté pan on medium heat and add olive oil. When the pan is hot, add mushrooms. Sauté the mushrooms until they are soft, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse the cooked mushrooms until they are ground into a paste. Let cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine ground mushrooms, soy sauce, scallions, garlic, and ginger and mix well.
  3. To make each dumpling, place about 2 teaspoons of mushroom mixture in the center of each wrapper. When ready to shape, brush two of the edges with water. Fold the dry sides onto the wet sides to form a triangle. Press with your fingers to make sure they are closed.
  4. Place the shaped dumplings onto a baking sheet. Once all the filling and wrappers are used, place the dumplings in the freezer until cold. Reserve until needed. To cook, boil in broth or water until cooked through, about four minutes.
