Chieu-Mein With Fresh Herbs.
Chieu-mein (chow mein
) noodles are thin wheat noodles. Buy these fresh in Chinatown
, if you can. They really only take around two minutes to cook in boiling water. Toss the cooked noodles in a sauce made from: Mirin
sweet cooking wine), Shiwan Rice Chiew (salted Chinese
cooking wine), chili oil, finely chopped leaves of two kinds of Vietnamese mint
, white pepper, minced ginger, the zest and juice of a lemon and a lime, roasted peanuts and almonds. The noodles were then tossed and garished with whole coriander and mint leaves.
Red-Cooked Mushrooms And Tofu
Choose large cremini mushrooms for this. Just clean them with a damp paper towel and place them in a pot. Add minced ginger and a whole clove of garlic. Cube some cotton tofu and add it to the pot. Toss in some roasted sesame seeds and a bit of white pepper. Pour in a generous amount of shoyu. Braise the mushrooms and tofu on high heat for around ten minutes.
Thinly slice fennel bulbs, red bell peppers, and cubanelle peppers. (You can use a mandolin or a food processor for this.) Stir fry for a few minutes. Season with shoyu and white pepper.
