  • 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

  • 1 tablespoon sambal
  • 1 tablespoon naturally brewed soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 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.
