Vegetable Chow Mein

Method

  • Soak the shiitakes in hot water for about 15 mins. Then discard the stalks and slice the caps.
  • Heat a little oil in a wok (or large non-stick pan) and briefly saute the garlic, ginger and chillies. Then add all the vegies and toss well to coat with the oil, before adding the stock, soy and rice wine. Toss well and cook until the vegies are tender.
  • At the same time, deep fry the noodles in hot oil until golden brown. Drain well on kitchen paper towels, add to the vegies and toss well.
  • Serve in large bowls.
