Slightly Asian Ramen

I’ve never had a porcini mushroom, but I do like shitakes and regular button mushrooms on occasion. One of the best pizzas I ever ate was a pepperoni and marinaded shitake mushroom pizza.

  • 1 packet of ramen (beef flavour)
  • 3 slices of dried porcini mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp of Hoisin sauce
  • 1 green onion
  • 1/2 tsp of garlic/chili sauce
  • 1/4 tsp of sesame oil

Chop green onion on angle and separate white from green parts. Bring water to a boil according to packet recipe. Add mushrooms, let simmer until soft (2-3 mins). Add noodles, Hoisin, flavour packet, garlic chili sauce and white part of green onions -- simmer until noodles are desired softness. Add sesame oil and green part of onions -- remove from heat. Let stand for a minute or two. Absorb wonderful aroma.

Also try with substituting fresh cilantro for green onions; quite a different experience.
