Asian Noodle Bowl


Asian Noodle Bowl

I finally bought an Ellie Krieger cookbook - So Easy: Luscious Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Week - and decided to cook one of her noodle recipes for this week's IHCC: Oodles of Noodles and Kitchen Flavours' Cookbook Countdown #2. :)

I choose Ellie's Asian Noodle Bowl. While Ellie uses soba noodles, I use Korean vermicelli or sweet potato starch noodles. I also use more Asian vegetables such as shimeiji mushrooms and goji berries. I omitted raw chopped scallions / spring onions because I don't like to eat them. :P
 



Recipe adapted from Ellie Krieger, So Easy or here.

Ingredients:
(Serves 2)

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 tablespoon minced ginger
4 dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked in water for 15 minutes, then drained
1 medium celery rib, sliced
1 medium carrot, cut into bite-sized chunks
1 medium leek, sliced
1 cup shimeiji mushrooms
1/4 cup dried goji berries
4 cups hot water
120g dried Korean vermicelli (photo below)
1 tablespoon chicken granules
2 tablespoons coconut amino
Toasted sesame oil, to drizzle


How to:

1. Heat up vegetable oil over medium heat in a frying pan. Add minced ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant.

2. Add shiitake mushrooms, celery, carrot, leek, shimeiji mushrooms, and goji berries. Cook, stirring for about 5 to 6 minutes. Add hot water, vermicelli, and chicken granules. Bring the pot to a vigorous boil, then reduce to simmer gently for about 15-20 minutes.

3. Before serving, stir in coconut amino. Ladle into two bowls and drizzle with toasted sesame oil.


Korean vermicelli is sweet potato starch noodles.

  3. So Easy is one of the Ellie cookbooks I own and I have made lots of great dishes from it. I love how simple the recipes are and how they make a great base to make them your own with changes like you made here. Your noodle bowl looks fabulous--I need to check out those noodles. ;-)

  4. So Easy is probably my favorite Ellie book. I have cooked so many recipes from it! I have never seen the sweet potato starch noodles before - thanks for sharing them. Your noodle bowl looks so comforting and delicious. I bet it was very soothing to eat:)

  6. I made this about 3 years ago and my comment in the cookbook was 'meh'. I think your adding more veggies and other ingredients probably kicked it up a notch.
