Mushroom Noodle

mushroom noodle 1

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 🙂

    Ahhh! Guess what?? I had never eaten bok choy and shitake mushroom either before moving to Australia!!! Not common at all in Europe. I have to admit I am still somewhat intimidated by them as I do not know how to cook them well… So thanks for sharing this!!! 🙂

      These mushrooms have browned nicely, paired with bok choy – it’s a classic 🙂

      There’s no better way to expand your cooking repertoire than to try something new!
