I had practically ran out of ideas on what to prepare for myself during breakfast and lunch. Normally, my children ate at different times (due to school finishing differently) and ate different foods. Their lunches range from rice to fried chicken to sandwiches to pasta or whatever they fancy. So, that leaves me to eat alone as I do not like eating what they eat.
Today, I was totally stumped and came up with this. It does look nice and taste good too. Good enough to get a post here. 😛
I bought the dried cha soba or Japanese Green Tea noodle from an organic shop. I love green tea so anything green tea is good for me. Then, I have a batch of mushrooms in the fridge and combine them together for a simple stir fry.
What I used :
One portion of cha soba, boil till soft, kept aside
Few pips of garlic chopped
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Enoki and baling mushroom (baling mushroom is fresh from China, huge and meaty type)
Seasoning – salt, white pepper, black pepper
Heat olive oil, stir fry garlic with mushroom, add seasoning and cha soba. You can’t find an easier method, right?
Eventhough the stir fried soba looks very plain, I am surprised that it is already flavourful because the green tea lends a flavour that blends with the mushroom. Certainly much healthier than a plate of Tai Lok Meen, isn’t it?
