Add olive oil, and knead on a lightly-floured surface for 5 minutes. Cover with a kitchen towel and set aside for 10 minutes

Make the mushroom filling
Rehydrate the porcini mushrooms by soaking them in water overnight. There's no need to drain them before making the filling.
1 cup dried porcini mushrooms
Heat sesame oil in a frying pan or work over a medium-high heat. Add the porcini mushrooms, salt, black pepper and scallions. Allow to cook, stirring frequently, for around 7-8 minutes, until lightly crispy, but not dried out.
1 tbsp sesame oil, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1 cup scallions
Make the wontons
Divide it into 4 sections to make the rolling process easier, then transfer a section onto a surface dusted with cornstarch, and roll it out into a very thin sheet. Flip it around 4-5 times to get the perfect result, and continue dusting with cornstarch to prevent sticking.
Remove the outer edges of the dough to form a square shape, then divide the square into nine smaller squares.
Place around 1 tbsp of the filling in the centre of a wonton wrappers, then dip your fingers in water and wet the edges. Fold over the square to form a triangle, and press down to seal. Then, bring together the corners of the triangle to make the wonton shape. Repeat with the rest of the wrappers.
Make the broth and cook wontons

- Transfer the wontons to freezer-friendly bags, label, and leave in the freezer for up to 2 months.
- When ready to serve, cook them from frozen, but add an extra couple of minutes to the cooking time.
