This year, I and Arvind made a resolution that we will eat/drink something new every week (either a fruit, vegetable, drink or protein) and we planned to call it Project 52 (started 2 weeks late :)). My initial idea was to upload these new dishes or drinks in my blog, but somehow I missed it. I guess I will try them again and this time, i will remember to carry my camera around with me 🙂
This week, we tried Shiitake mushroom and Bok Choy. I know it’s very common in US, but in India, I never saw these mushrooms or bok choy. I moved to US recently and my husband doesn’t remember if he ate them in some dish or not 😀 Anyways, I remember that i have never eaten them before, so it still meets the criteria to fall under Project 52.
My initial plan was to stuff them or grill them, but yesterday morning, I was so confused about what to cook for lunch and therefore, I made them with noodles. It was a great combination and we were pretty happy with the results 🙂
- 1 packet noodle
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 1 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
- one bunch bok choy, roughly chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tbs ginger, finely chopped
- About 5 to 7 shiitake mushroom, thinly sliced
- 1 tbs sweet and sour soy sauce
- 1/2 tbs vinegar
- 1 green chillies, finely chopped
- 1 tbs red chilly paste
- 1 tbs lime juice
- salt and pepper
Boil the noodles in hot water with some salt
In a pan, heat some oil
Add garlic and ginger and saute them properly
Add the onions and fry them till they’re golden brown
Add green chillies, chilly paste, salt, pepper, soya sauce and vinegar to the pan.
Saute them for a while and then add tomatoes, mushroom and bok choy
Cook till the vegetables are tender. It should take about 5 to 7 minutes
Finally, add the noodles and mix them properly.
Sprinkle some lime juice on top and serve it hot.
I loved the combination so much that I might try them with pasta someday 🙂
