Recipe

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces “cellophane” mung bean noodles
  • 6 Chinese dried black mushrooms
  • 1/3 pound tender spinach leaves
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 3 medium-sized mushrooms
  • 2 Chinese cabbage leaves
  • 4 scallions
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon Japanese soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Directions

Soak the noodles in 6 cups of water for half an hour. Drain.

Soak the Chinese mushrooms in 1 cup hot water for 20 minutes. When they have softened, cut off the hard stems and slice the caps fine.

Drop the spinach into 10 cups of boiling water. Boil rapidly for 2 minutes. Drain. Run under cold water. Squeeze out as much moisture as possible.

Peel the carrot, cut into 3 sections and then into fine julienne strips.Trim the zucchini ends and cut into fine julienne strips.

Wipe off the fresh mushrooms and break off their stems. Cut the caps into very fine slices. Cut the nonwoody part of the stems into matchstick pieces. Cut away and discard the curly, tender part of the cabbage leaves. Save only the V-shaped core of the leaves. Cut this into julienne strips.

Cut the scallions into 2½-inch sections. Quarter the section with the bulb lengthwise.

Combine the Chinese mushrooms, spinach, carrot, zucchini, mushrooms, cabbage, and scallions in a bowl. Mix well, separating all the spinach leaves.

Heat the vegetable oil and the sesame oil in a wok or a 10-inch sauté pan over a medium-high flame.

When hot, put in the garlic. Stir and fry for 10 seconds. Add all the vegetables in the bowl. Stir and fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until the vegetables are tender-crisp.

Turn the heat to low. Add the drained noodles, soy sauce, sugar, and salt. Stir well, distributing the noodles evenly, and cook 2 to 3 minutes.

Taste for seasonings.
