What you'll need:

  • 5 to 8 shiitake mushrooms, cleaned, stems removed and thinly cut

How it's made:

  1. In a saucepan, cook the Chinese noodles according to package instructions, drain and set aside. I normally use the white Chinese flat noodle, which takes about 1-2 mins to cook. 
  2. Use the same saucepan to bring the vegetable stock boil and set aside.
  3. In a wok over medium-high heat, heat vegetable oil and add the garlic and ginger, cooking until fragrant, roughly about 1-2 mins.
  4. Add the shiitake mushrooms and cook until soft.
  5. Then, add the Pak Choi and cook until soft, but still crunchy.
  6. Add rice vinegar and a sprinkle of salt and continuously to stir for another 1-2 mins. Adjust the seasoning, if needed.
  7. Prepare two serving bowls, first add the noodles, then the vegetable stock. Finally topped the bowl with Pak Choi and Shiitake mushrooms.
  8. Sprinkle some sesame seeds and serve hot.
