- 1 cup mung bean noodles, 1 small package, soaked in hot water until soft, drained
- 8 each black mushrooms, rehydrated, de-stemmed and julienned
- 1 small bamboo shoot, julienned, fresh or in water (If canned, buy whole and soak in water overnight, then rinse well)
- 2 ounces black moss (hair vegetable), in and out of hot water and rinsed
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
- 1 jalapeno, de-stemmed, minced
- 4 sheets tofu skin, cut in half lengthwise, each piece about 4 by 10 inches
- 1 cup lightly brewed jasmine tea
- Soy-Sambal Chutney, recipe follows
In a bowl, mix together the noodles, black mushrooms, shoots, moss, sesame oil, cilantro, and jalapenos. Lay out tofu skin lengthwise away from you. Start 2 inches up from the bottom of the tofu and spread a thin layer over the bottom half. Fold 2 inches at a time away from you. The last couple of folds will not have filling on the tofu. Repeat. Place rolls, folded side down on a plate and soak with tea. Place in hot steamer for 20 to 30 minutes until hot and soft.
Pull the plate from the steamer and transfer rolls to 4 plates, 2 rolls per plate. Top with quenelle of chutney.
Beverage: Hot Jasmine tea
