Mixed Vegetables with a Little Bit of Vermicelli


This dish was supposed to be composed of purely vegetables but I found a small bag of vermicelli in my pantry and decided to add them.

This recipe makes great use of leftover vegetables. If you want to try it, here's what you need;

some shrimps, cleaned, shelled with tails intact and deveined
carrots
Enoki mushrooms
woodear mushrooms or tengang daga (soak in water for 5 minutes and then drain)
cabbage
garlic
chicken broth
soy sauce
salt and pepper
optional: vermicelli

Let's do this!

Heat some oil in a wok and saute the chopped garlic. Add the carrots. Cook for 1 minute. Add the cabbage and mushrooms. Add the shrimps. When the shrimps are almost done, add some chicken broth, about 1/8 cup if not using vermicelli. If you are using then you need more. Season with soy sauce, salt and pepper. Add the vermicelli and let it cook.

Note: You can use the soaking water of the woodear mushrooms. I used it but the flavor was too overpowering. Next time I will ditch it.
