Gingery shiitake noodles
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 8
Whatever you do, don’t cut your noodles – they represent long life!
- STEP 1
Cook the noodles according to pack instructions, then toss with a little sesame oil to stop them sticking.
- STEP 2
Heat a wok over a high heat, then add the groundnut oil. Once it’s smoking, add the ginger, stir-fry for a couple of secs, then add the mushrooms with a splash of water to create steam, and cook for 1 min. Toss through the cooked noodles for 2 mins until hot, then add the spring onions, oyster and soy sauces, and a dash more sesame oil.
STIR-FRIED GARLIC PAK CHOI
Heat 2 tbsp groundnut oil in a wok over a high heat. When it starts to smoke, add 8 finely chopped garlic cloves, stir-fry for a couple of secs, then throw in 600g pak choi leaves, separated and halved lengthways, and a splash of water. Stir for 2-3 mins until the leaves have wilted but the stem still has bite, then season and serve straight away.
