King Oyster Mushroom And Tofu In Black Bean Sauce On Crispy Rice Vermicelli

Having to deal with so much meat and poultry everyday at work means often a simple vegetarian meal is all I want when I get a chance to cook for myself. 

Though it doesn't fare too well in the look department, this simple noodle dish certainly is a winner in both the taste and texture department. As a carnivore, I am often not completely satisfied after a vegetarian meal and this is a rare exception. 

Have a great weekend and I shall see you on Monday for another Malaysian Monday post!

recipe from the tummies' kitchen
recipe per serve
you'll need;
oil for cooking
150 g of rice vermicelli, soften in warm water, drained well
2 garlic cloves, chopped
a small knob of ginger, chopped
2 bird chilies, chopped
1 king oyster mushroom, sliced lengthwise
1/4 block of fried tofu, sliced
10 snow peas, topped and tailed and sliced
3 Chinese cabbage leaves, sliced
a small handful of chives, halved crosswise
2 heaped tbs of black bean sauce
1 tbs of soy
1 tbs of sugar
1 tbs of vegetarian oyster sauce
a dash of sesame oil
a dash of Chinese cooking wine
3/4 cup of stock
corn flour solution

Prepare the mushroom, tofu and vegetables.

Prepare the aromatics and mix all the seasonings in a bowl and mix well.

Heat up the wok until smoking then add in a tbs of cooking oil and spread it evenly , loosen the drained rice vermicelli and spread across the wok, turn the heat down and allow the noodles to toast gently until golden at the bottom, flip over and repeat the same on the other side. Remove and keep warm.

Saute garlic, ginger and chili with a little oil for 30 seconds, add mushroom and tofu and continue to cook for a further 30 seconds, next in the vegetables (except for the chives) and mix well.

Add the sauce mixture when the the Chinese cabbage is slightly wilted, continue to stir fry for a further 45 seconds to a minute.

Add Chinese chives and mix well, finally check for seasonings before thickening the sauce with a little corn flour solution.

Pour the sauce over the crispy rice vermicelli and serve with some cut chili on the side.


  1. I like these oyster mushrooms, they have a nice meaty texture... almost like eating meat!


    1. Hi

      Cooking when trying to lose body fat can Be tricky, we all know that. But today I got good news for you!

      My friends Karine Losier and Dave Ruel spent the past year or so crafting the perfect "metabolic" recipe book.

      I highly recommend this for your kitchen if you want to get leaner, do it faster, and have it taste BETTER than ever:

      My TOP Fatloss Recipe Book <--- see how tasty


      What is "metabolic cooking"?

      Simply stated, it's a unique way of preparing food that combines nutrients specifically geared for melting off body fat FASTER than normal.

      Here's what I really love about Metabolic Cooking:

      1. The recipes are made from foods with a high Metabolic Thermo-Charge; more calories burned faster without losing taste...

      2. They structured the cookbooks around their incredibly helpful "Metabolic Nutri-Profile"... makes it SUPER easy to use...

      3. It's been specifically designed to fight the Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon: That is what happens when you are on a dietplan and you all of a sudden stop dropping bodyfat!

      Taste, ease, and metabolism-boosting power.

      You need nothing more. The BEST recipes for faster fat loss <--- Yummy recipes to melt bodyfat

      Talk to you soon,
