Noodles with mushrooms & roasted peanuts


  • Soak the shiitakes in very hot water for 30 mins. Then drain well, discard the stalks and slice the caps. 
  • At the same time, dry roast the peanuts in the oven (or toast them in a non-stick pan) until golden. 
  • Soak the noodles in boiling water until separated. Drain well. 
  • Then heat a little oil in a large wok (or heavy-bottomed pan) and sauté the onion and capsicum with all the mushrooms until well coated and sealed, continually tossing. 
  • Add ½ cup stock, the soy and kecap manis. Stir well and cook until the vegies are tender, adding more stock if needed. 
  • Then add the noodles, bok choy, spring onions, bean shoots and peanuts. Toss to wilt the vegies and warm through. 
  • Serve with the bottle of soy on the side.
